Installing a new Tub and/or Shower.

A tub and shower are is easy to maintain…once their built.  If you believe yourself the King or Queen of the Handymen, the materials and tools that you will need for the project are a jigsaw, level, sandpaper, adhesive, caulk, and possibly some other things.  Then the fun begins as the muss and the fuss begins in earnest.

Here are some of the steps –

1.  You must take off the spout, faucet handles, and accessories
2.  Remove the tile and look for the possibility of growing mold
3.  Clean the walls thoroughly and apply primer
4.  Carefully mark all of the holes where the showerhead, handles, and faucet will be
5.  Make sure to evenly apply the adhesive and attach the panels to the wall

Does that sound like a fun way to spend a weekend or longer?  Why not call the professional tub and shower installers at All Home Plumbing?  These are the people to trust for all of your plumbing needs as well as emergencies you may have.  The phone number to call in the Hixon and Chattanooga area is (423) 598-1466.

Backflow in the Winter.

Backflow devices are found all over this great country.  They protect our drinking water from contamination.  Everywhere from sunny, warm southern Florida to Maine and right here in the Chattanooga area there are backflow problems that crop up.  There are differences in backflow prevention between warmer and chillier times of the year.

They all require annual inspections of assemblies nationwide, no matter the annual rainfall or average temperature in the dead of winter.  In cold weather, assemblies and their meters must be protected against freezing.  More damage can be done in cold climates than warm…it’s really that simple!

This time of year, snow and freezing temperatures can take their toll on access doors and equipment.  There is a perfect solution in Chattanooga, Hixon, and the surrounding area.  It’s All Home Plumbing.  That is whom you call for any and all inspections, repairs, and replacements of equipment.  Give All Home a call today at (423) 598-1466.
