Orange County Showers and Tubs
Bathing is an essential part of every human being’s life. Even if one doesn’t like or finds the time for taking a bath often, we all have to do it at one time or another. Showers and tubs, therefore are an essential part of every home today.
Whether you’re building a new house or just adding an additional bathroom, you’ll definitely add a shower, a tub, or maybe both to suit your bathing needs. Or perhaps you have the need to get your tub or shower repaired or even replaced over time depending on its condition. That is the time to call in a professional to help you make the right choice that best suits your needs and your budget. Plumbing infrastructure installation at your own hands instead of by a licensed professional also voids any type of warranty that comes with the newly purchased product from either the manufacturer or vendor.
Shower Tub Combination
Most people today install a combination of shower and tub in their bathroom to accommodate for all their bathing needs. The tub is used for prone bathing while the wall mounted nozzles or showering heads are used for showering. Handheld showers that can be moved about are also popular. The shower and tub can have separate dedicated spaces, or the shower can be mounted over the bathtub space for bathrooms constructed over a limited area.
Bathtubs are ideal for combining bathing with comfort. Go prone in your tub at the end of a tiring day after willing it with hot water to relax and relieve tiredness. Tubs can be free standing, on a pedestal, or utilize a wall for support.
Hot tubs are tubs specifically used for filling with hot water for relaxation or hydrotherapy. Hot tubs are usually placed outdoors, generating pulses in water for massaging purposes.
Whirlpool tubs are great for hydrotherapy. They create pulses in the water by introducing air bubbles into the water nozzles through the use of an air bleed pump.
Walk-in bathtubs are ideal for assisting those with limited mobility. The elderly or disabled can use walk-in tubs with ease due to their inward or outward opening design with the self-sealing door. These can also be equipped with additional safety features like grab bars, anti-slip floors, seats, handheld showerheads, and hydrotherapy and whirlpool features as well.
For homes where space is not a problem, a standalone shower works best. It can be installed in both framed and frameless designs. Instead of a single shower head, multiple nozzles can be installed on the wall to deliver water at different angles.
Newer and better-designed shower nozzles today have greatly improved water delivery. Sensor operated showerheads can distribute water over a large solid angle to reduce water usage, making them eco-friendly. Low flow shower heads are more efficient in water use by aerating the water stream. Other showerheads and nozzles can be adjusted to change patterns of water being sprayed.
Repair or Replace?
Over time you will be faced with this question one day. When your tub or shower starts giving less than a 100 percent, you’ll be confronted with a choice. Is it time to start picking a replacement? Or will a repair lend me more time?
When to Repair
- For Minor Leaks. Is your tub leaking due to minimal damage? A repair can fix that for you and leave it good to go. Same goes for a shower. Leaking showers can usually be repaired and go on functioning for many more years.
- Cosmetic Issues. Is your shower or tub starting to discolor over time? Or perhaps the abrasive chemicals you’ve been using have made the tubs or showers turn odd colors? Instead of replacing, a simple relining or refinishing job is the better and less costly solution for an otherwise perfectly working shower or tub.
When to Replace
- Major Problems. Major problems like bigger leaks or damage demand a replacement rather than a repair. In these cases, even if a repair manages to be effective it is bound to be temporary and a waste of both time and money. Tubs and shower pans may reach the end of their lifespan and require being replaced.
- Bathroom Remodeling. When remodeling a bathroom, people opt for relining or refinishing their existing tubs or shower pans. However, while remodeling, the surrounding work in the bathroom makes replacement easier and more cost-effective than a repair solution. It is better in such a scenario to have the items replaced instead because keeping the old one isn’t worth the cost. Call Aux Rooter for your next project!
