How Does Hard Water Affect Your Faucet?
Hard water can impact the quality and lifespan of your faucets. Some of the effects it can have include:
- It can cause leaks and other damage to your unit.
- It can cause your plumbing system to leak.
- It can create limescale stains on your faucets and sinks. This limescale buildup will eventually disrupt your water pressure.
- Hard water contains abrasive minerals, such as calcium, that can cause stains on your faucets and fixtures.
What Are the Different Types of Bathtubs?
When replacing your existing bathtub in Brick, there are many varieties you can choose to install. Some of them include:
- ALCOVE BATHTUB: This is the traditional style of bathtub that you likely have in your house currently. It fits in a three-walled enclosure, and when the walls are tiled or fitted with panels, the enclosure can be used for a tub/shower combination. This type of tub lets you maximize your space, as it is typically 60 inches in length, but can range from 53 to 72 inches.
- DROP-IN BATHTUB: With this type of tub, you can have a contractor build a deck or peninsula that juts into the room and the tub is installed in that space. These tubs have their own rim, and while they can be installed in an alcove, most are installed in an open area. Because of this, this style of tub requires more space than an alcove model.
- FREE-STANDING TUB: For the ultimate freedom when bathing, there is the free-standing tub. While this can be more expensive than an alcove or drop-in model, these units can be installed anywhere in your bathroom. Because of this, the plumbing is exposed in this model. One option is to purchase parts that celebrate the exposed plumbing rather than trying to hide it. Slipper and claw-foot models fall into this category.
- CORNER BATHTUB: This type of tub can be more expensive than an alcove or drop-in, but less costly than a free-standing tub. These triangular-shaped tubs are five-sided and give plenty of space. This does mean they will take up more space in your bathroom, and they do require more water (and time) to fill up. But these can provide an interesting focal point in your bathtub and create a relaxing tub for leisurely baths.
- UNDERMOUNT BATHTUB: One of the least common types of tubs, this style has the basin mounted under a rim of another material - usually a hard, waterproof material like a solid surface, tile, or stone.
What Are the Different Types of Showers?
When selecting a shower for your bathroom, you have several options. Some of the most common types are:
- ELECTRIC SHOWERS: These can be used with any type of water system. They are very energy-efficient and can operate quite effectively even if your property has low water pressure.
- MIXED SHOWERS: Another popular model, these showers mix the existing hot and cold water in a home or building with a special valve. These are relatively easy to install and will work well with any type of water pressure.
- THERMOSTATIC MIXER SHOWERS: This model uses a pre-set control device to ensure that your shower is the exact temperature you want it to be. It will detect any sudden changes and ensure that you never have to deal with unexpected bursts of extremely hot or cold water.
