Out with the old and in with the new. The new year is always the perfect opportunity to upgrade different aspects of our homes. Why not make a New Year’s resolution to update your home’s plumbing? To help you out, we came up with a few ideas to get you started.
Are you in an area with hard water? To help protect your plumbing, consider installing a water softener. The minerals in your water can continue to build up over time and could cause clogs or damage. A water softener will help to remove these minerals and keep your fixtures and appliances working longer since there won’t be build-up.
Smart Water Leak Detection System
Did you know a water leak is one of the most common plumbing problems? Difficult to detect, water leaks can lead to expensive repairs. Consider installing a smart water leak detection system to help prevent costly repairs later. The smart water leak detection system has a set of sensors that will alert you if an issue is detected.
Install New Faucets and Showerheads
One of the simplest ways to upgrade your plumbing is to modernize your faucets and showerheads. Start by looking at showerheads with adjustable water pressure to control how much water you’re using and efficient water faucets. On top of a bathroom upgrade, these things can save you money on your water bill.
Upgrade Your Water Heater and Install
A water heater is essential to your home’s plumbing system. Consider how old your water heater may be. If it’s more than ten years old or isn’t running as efficiently as it should, it’s time to replace it. In today’s day and age, new water heaters are a lot more efficient and will save you money. In addition, our Arrowhead Brass water heater connectors pair well with your water heater upgrade and can be found at arrowheadbrass.com/product/stainless-steel-supply-lines-hs75f75f-20.
Replace Existing Pipes and Fixtures
A crucial part of your home’s plumbing is replacing old or outdated pipes and fixtures. To ensure your plumbing system is properly functioning and won’t give you any future problems, upgrade using materials that are up to code. As you do this, look for insulated pipes and fixtures that use less water. Installing new and insulated pipes will be helpful for the environment and for saving money.
