Choose The Right Faucet

There are many options involved when you’re going to choose a new faucet. You have to think about how you want it to work, how you want it to look, and so much more. As we move further into this technological age more, we have more options than ever with everything, including which one you choose for all the sinks in your house.

Faucet Look

Faucet closeup.It may not be the most important thing when you’re shopping for a faucet, but the way it’s going to look in your house is definitely important. What style do you want? Do you want any bells and whistles? What finish are you thinking about? What kind of finish is on the rest of the appliances and fixtures in the rest of the room where you’re installing the fixture? So many questions need to be answered when you’re choosing a faucet.

Faucet Style

What style are you looking for? Centerset. Single control. Lavatory. Widespread. Vessel. Wall mount. Something else. A combination of a few different styles. Chances are, whatever look you’re going for, you’ll find one in the style you want.

Faucet Finishes

Whether you’re in the market for nickel, chrome, brass, bronze, stainless, or something else, chances are you can find it to match or even compliment what’s already in the room where you’re installing this fixture. The different finishes come in polished and brushed as well to give them slightly different looks.

Faucet Technology

Technology has been creeping into all aspects of our life for years and years to come now, but do you realize that some faucets you’re able to buy actually have technology built into them. They’re not not advanced by the technology they’re made with anymore. The technology is built into them as well.

The technology for motion sensory faucets was invented in the mid 1950s but wasn’t ingratiated into the public until the 1980s. We have touch faucets now as well. You can get one with a LED temperature control. Some come with WaterSense control save up to 20% more water than those with out. With all the bells and whistles technology is coming up with nowadays, why shouldn’t your faucet have some fancy tech too?

Clogged Drains

Clogged Drains: A Guide

Clogged drains are the worst. Whether it’s your kitchen sink, the drain from your clothes washer or your bathtub/shower, if your water isn’t going down the drain, you’ve got problems. The first thing most people think of when they need to unclog a drain is to grab the plunger. Your toilet is clogged? Plunge it. But you can use the plunger in your sinks and in your tubs and shower. Plungers were made to unclog any drain.Clogged Sink Drain Plunger

Do You Know How to Fix a Clogged Drain?

Have you ever used a plunger before? Chances are, you most likely have. Some people plunge aimlessly without knowing what they’re doing. I know that I have done this countless times even though I think I know what I’m doing. Even knowing what I’m doing, I still feel as though I’m aimlessly working toward my intended goal. Just because I work for a plumber doesn’t mean I know how to be a plumber. I’m learning and I want to pass that on to you.

Now, a magician can’t give away all their secrets, and neither should a plumber. That doesn’t mean however that you shouldn’t know how to do simple things around your house if you wanted to. I already dislodged my garbage disposal when something was stuck in it and no more than a few weeks ago I unclogged my shower drain. Knowing simple things can help having to have a plumber come out for a simple service call so you can save your money for when you need something serious done like you need a new water heater.

Unclogging a Drain

Drain unclogger liquids that you can buy in the store aren’t that good for your pipes, especially if they’re old pipes and haven’t been updated or upgraded to PVC or PEX piping like we do here at Bruce Thompson Plumbing LLC in St. George and Cedar City. If your drains get clogged, try a plunger. There are a few different types in the store so make sure you get the right one. Also, if you’re not sure what you’re doing, a tutorial can be found with a quick search on the Internet and your pipes should be back in working order in no time.

Situation: Your sink is clogged. Solution: Plunge it. You’ll want to make sure there’s water in the sink or the tap running. You’re not going to get enough pressure down the drain without the water. You’ll want to plunge up and down for about fifteen to twenty seconds to get whatever is lodged to dislodge. Your water should be flowing through with ease in no time. If you’re still having issues, then that’s the time you need to call Bruce Thompson Plumbing LLC in St. George and Cedar City and we’ll be there to help you in no time!

Water Heater

Water Heaters

Hot water is important! Let’s face it. You wake up in the morning and the first thing you want to do is take a nice hot shower. Or, it’s the last thing you want to do at night before climbing into your bed. That hot water is important. But we use it more than just in our daily showers. We usually take something like this for granted, it’s something that will always be there. But what if it isn’t? Having a basic understanding of where you get your hot water from is important.

Where Does Your Hot Water Come From?

If you’re a homeowner, you know where your hot water heater is. If you’re a renter, you most likely do too. Though knowing where your hot water comes from and actually knowing how it gets to your shower or sink or washer is a different story. Knowing is a big part about how much we take for granted when it comes to our hot water. Do you ever really think “How is my water hot?” while you’re doing the dishes or after you’ve washed a load of laundry? Chances are, probably not. Though, knowing is important even if it’s just to understand.

Gas and Electric

Gas heaters come in many options for use including electricity, natural gas, propane, heating oil, solar, or other energy sources. Mostly, people either use gas or electric heaters. However, since 2006 and the tax credits were extended through 2016, the installation and use of solar energy gas heaters has increased and is projected to increase even through 2019. Even with the growing use of solar energy heaters, gas and electric heaters are still the most used and electric heaters are increasingly becoming more common than gas heaters.

Tank and Tankless

Beyond the types of options for using heaters, there are also tank and tankless heaters. Tank heaters or storage heaters store water and keep it hot and ready to use. Tankless heaters are different in the fact that the water is heated instantly when you need it and doesn’t run thorugh anything except for the system.

What Is Important

Whether you have gas or electric, tank or tankless, the odds are that having a working water heater is important to you and you’ll do what you need to do to make sure it’s working at all times. You don’t want to be standing in the shower and instantly freezing or washing your dishes with cold water. Let us at Bruce Thompson Plumbing LLC in St. George and Cedar City be the first you think of for all of your hot water heater needs! We save you time and money!
