In the old days, almost all modern bathroom plumbing was made of galvanized or cast iron. It was also easy to keep your plumbing looking good. But times have changed and there is a whole new group of consumers for whom traditional pipes are simply no longer sufficient. If you belong to this group, read on.
There is a huge market for “trenchless” plumbing nowadays. This simply means that the pipes are installed without the use of pipes under the ground. The reason why it is called “trenchless” is that you can simply dig a hole in your backyard, fill it with dirt, and install the plumbing. Sounds easy enough, but if you have a smaller house, or an older house, it might not be a practical solution. In addition, older homes were built before plumbing companies started making long-lasting pipes. Therefore, even if you opt for a trenchless installation, you will still need to make do with the old pipes.
You could try to replace those long-ago plumbing fixtures, but you may end up with an eyesore. A better alternative would be to install new fixtures that are made to fit into existing drains and fixtures. For example, you can get new fixtures that match the look of your drains and fixtures. And since newer fixtures are made to work more efficiently, they will in turn, use less water, thus saving you money on your monthly plumbing bills.
Even if you want to go with the tried-and-true “standard” fixtures, you can still remodel your bathroom by changing the faucets, sinks, toilets, bathtubs, showers, and lighting. Changing the faucets can give you a completely new look without a lot of work. On the other hand, if you want to change the sink, bathroom, or toilet, your homeowners’ association might approve a complete bathroom remodel to allow you to do so.
Last but not least, there are some types of plumbing that you should consider changing. For example, if you live in a warm climate, like Atlanta, then you should think about installing a new hot water heater to save on your heating bill. Also, if you are living in a cold place, like Alaska, then you should probably replace your hot water heater or tank with a model that consumes less energy.
