Are You & Property Properly WIRED?!

To be certain that the plumbing and electricity are up to snuff in your bathroom, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is the water pressure satisfactory?
  • Do the pipes make a banging noise (known as water hammer)?
  • Do the drains flow slowly?
  • Are there any unusual noises or smells in the drains?
  • Is the electric wiring safe and adequate?
  • Is the lighting good enough to light the area?

If you are faced with any of the above issues, consider the following techniques to better the situation:

  • Install water pipes with a larger diameter to allow for greater flow, or use pressure balancing valves.
  • Provide your plumbing an air cushion to get rid of the water hammer.
  • Make certain that your drainage system is sufficiently vented, and that the proper traps have been installed.
  • Unclog any drains that used to drain more quickly, and are now slow to flow.
  • Have an electrician inspect your electric wiring. Have the wiring upgraded for safety reasons, if required.
  • Update the lighting in the bathroom so that it is adequate for the space.
