Bathroom

Follow the helpful hints and tips related to the bathroom.

The most important step in installing a wall-mounted sink is, naturally, attaching it to the wall. These sinks can be hung on a metal bracket or bolted directly to wall studs. Either way, you will probably have to remove some drywall at the point of attachment or install a wood block in the wall as backing for the attachment bolts. 

Buying a toilet is not something you do every day, which is why you should go into the decision knowing exactly what you want and need. Here are a few factors to consider when buying a toilet. 

It’s pretty straightforward to go from a pedestal sink to a vanity in your bathroom, but the opposite is not always true—removing a vanity for a pedestal sink may require some re-plumbing. Drain and supply lines must be roughed at the proper height and the finished product has to look professional (there’s no hiding shoddy installation behind wooden doors). Call your local plumber to get the job done right.

Homeowners often wonder whether it's better to repair or replace a malfunctioning faucet. The best answer is: it depends.

Sewage ejector pumps take care of transporting sewage out of a building when toilets or sinks are located below the sewer line, as is often the case in basements. Guidelines for selecting the proper tank and pump can read like a college thesis, but the basic rules are not complicated.

If you've noticed dampness or water pooling around the base of the toilet, don't look the other way—unless you want to pay for ripping up and replacing rotted floorboards.

We’ve all been there – facing a clogged toilet or, worse, rising water when trying to flush in the face of blockage. The only thing worse than a clogged toilet is an overflowing one, but if you act fast, you can avoid the mess and potential embarrassment.

As anyone with a wife or daughters knows, it doesn’t take much for a shower or tub drain to clog with hair. A simple way to avoid clogging is to fit the drain with a strainer that will catch both hair and soap chips that can also build up in a drain.

If your toilet's clogged, the water is very low, and a plunger just isn't cutting it, we've got a surprisingly simple solution that will usually get the job done for you.

With your bathroom sink and tub being two of the most heavily-used plumbing fixtures in your home, it's imperative that you keep them working well to save yourself the hassle and cost of complicated repairs and maintenance.
