3 Possible Improvements for your Kitchen Plumbing

kitchen-plumbing-improvementsYour kitchen is one of the most important parts of the house: the place where you prepare meals and gather to discuss important events of the day. With the exception of your bathroom, no plumbing fixtures receive more use than those in your kitchen. If you’re looking at making improvements to your kitchen plumbing – either on their own or as part of a larger kitchen remodeling session – it pays to consider your options carefully.

Every home is unique and your kitchen is equally unique. When planning for improvements, it pays to discuss what you want with your plumbing technician and find the right specifics to suit the space. That said, there are some common notions you might want to consider regardless of your circumstances. We’ve listed three of them below, to give you an idea of what your options are.

1.     Sinks

Every kitchen needs a sink and if your current model isn’t doing the job, you might want to think about a change. If you have space and you’re constantly jostling with other family members over the sink use, a second sink or the addition of a double sink can do wonders to alleviate the space.

You might also consider the notion of dedicated sinks: one for food preparation and one for cleaning, for instance. Not only does that help prevent multiple family members fighting over a single sink, but it allows you to better organize the space and tasks of the kitchen.

2.     Water Outlets

Most modern refrigerators contain water dispensers and/or ice cube makers, both of which require a water line to use. If your kitchen doesn’t have a dedicated water line for this purpose, you should seriously consider getting one installed. But water lines can serve other purposes as well. For instance, the kitchen is one of the most common spots in the home for house fires, for obvious reasons. A sprinkler system installed in your kitchen can help address those concerns, and such systems require a dedicated water line for that purpose.

Water outlets are an excellent example of why kitchen plumbing needs to fit your specific need, and why a trained plumber can help you sort out the best possibilities for you.

3.     Tankless Water Heaters

Hot water is essential to any kitchen environment: both for cooking and for cleaning. Most homes in the area use traditional tank water heaters, but they’re often responsible for the entire household and may take time to reach sufficient temperatures. A tankless water heater installed in your kitchen will heat the water instantly as it travels through the pipes. Not only does this mean you can access hot water instantly, but you won’t have to waste water by running the sink until the hot water starts to flow. Over time, this can save you a great deal of money, and because tankless water heaters can be installed at the sink itself, it’s easy for plumbers to treat when trouble arises.

During this very unusual time, we have put a plan in place to do our part to help keep our community safe. First and foremost, we are going to stay CALM, PATIENT, KIND, and POSITIVE!

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

Because we have a direct impact on the indoor environment, here are practical steps we are going to take to keep people safe:

  • Wash our hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water
  • Cover our nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • Wash our uniforms every day including cleaning our belts
  • Stay home if we are feeling sick
  • Offer a warm smile and friendly greeting instead of a handshake
  • Wear shoe covers and latex gloves in homes and businesses
  • Wipe down surfaces and equipment touched in a client’s home with disinfectant wipes
  • Wipe down door handles, steering wheels, gear shift lever every day
  • Wipe down pens, clipboards, tablets, cell phones, and anything else passes between techs and clients.
  • We have masks on each truck and will wear them at client’s discretion (Currently the CDC does not recommend that people wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19)
  • We are complying with all recommendations and guidelines from state agencies and will be proactive in our efforts to see that our team members and clients are protected.

As the situation unfolds, we will take each day one at a time and ensure we are being smart, supportive, and helping all those we can in our community.

Thank you for your continued support!
