5 Plumbing Secrets the Pros Won't Tell You
- Ask your plumber to lay an empty water pipe in the ground before you pour cement for the entryway to your house. This way, the gardener will be able to connect irrigation pipes in one section of the garden with those in another without the pipes having to be draped along the wall.
- If you think that at some point in the future you might want to fill a children's swimming pool in your garden or balcony, have your plumber install a faucet for cold AND hot water (usually, outside faucets are only connected to cold water). Imagine how much fun it would be for your kids to splash around in a heated pool!
- If you've purchased a wall-mounted rainfall shower head, ask your plumber to install a water outlet higher than he normally does. For people of average height, it's most comfortable if the bottom of the shower head is 210 cm high from the floor or the bottom of the bathtub.
- Plan ahead where you want your shower faucet to be so that it will flow nicely with the layout of the tiles. It's a shame to pay for beautiful accent tiles only to find that the concealed mixer valve is covering them up.
- Are you planning on having a Tami-4-type water filter sitting on your kitchen countertop? If so, add a cold water outlet to your plan in the appropriate spot, 20 cm above the countertop.
