Waterproofing Your Shower

 

Snip20190211_1

When you are remodeling your bathroom, you want to make sure everything is perfectly set. This means making sure all plumbing seals are good, all tiles are grouted properly but most importantly you waterproof the areas that have excessive water.  In order to waterproof your shower, you will want to first mark your area. Make sure to properly measure your wall and mark out where you will be waterproofing. Once you have your area measured out you can mask off the section with masking tape. A good rule of thumb is to extend your waterproofing 100mm above your water outlet and 100mm wider than the edges of your shower. Continue reading →

How to have your home be more Sustainable

envforum logoSustainability is a big buzzword these days, but what exactly does it mean? Sustainability means meeting your current needs without having a negative impact on the needs of future generations. It also requires you to make environmentally-conscious choices about the way you live. It’s not really plausible for most of us to have a completely sustainable home — one that uses only nature’s infinite resources with no affect on the environment around us. But fortunately, there are some measures you can take to make your home more sustainable.

Your choices as a consumer greatly affect the sustainability of your home. Using rechargeable batteries limits the waste of items that often can’t be recycled. Buying paper products made with recycled content continues the chain of sustainability. Better yet, lose the paper towels and use a washable cloth. Biodegradable trash bags and cups are made of corn that dissolves over time, adding one less type of plastic to our landfills. And energy/water saver appliances can all help contribute to a more sustainable way of living.

In this particular blog we are going to highlight a particular brand that we at Plumbtile are proud to provide; California Faucets takes water sustainability very seriously! Read more below.

Some municipalities require you install an air gap between your dishwasher and garbage disposal or sink drain to avoid such an occurrence. You can install an air gap in a single afternoon without the help of a plumber. Dishwasher air gap kits are available with everything needed for the air gap, but not the additional hose required to attach the gap to either the sink drain or the disposal.

Installing A Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink

double-bowl-moen-rotator

Adding a new attractive stainless steel kitchen sink to replace to old, dingy one that you’ve been looking at for too long, is a fairly easy do-it-yourself project. You’ll most likely need a drop-in, surface mounted sink. This will typically be of average difficulty to replace and you’ll need: a new sink of the same size opening that you are replacing, plumber’s putty/silicone caulk, an adjustable wrench, phillips and straight head screwdrivers, Teflon tape for threaded connections, new plumbing and drain parts as required.
