When you think of household hacks you probably think about the type of hacks that you can do on your own. The truth is there are some household hacks that need a professional's touch. Here are a few hacks for your home renovation that can be put in place by your professional plumber.
Under the Stairs Bathroom
If you have a small storage area or room under the stairs, you know how difficult it can be to utilize that space properly and efficiently. One way to use the space is to create a guest bathroom. With the help of professional plumbers, you can turn that boring empty space into a half bath for guests or a full bathroom if you have the right amount of space. This hacks the space, uses it for something other than its original purpose, and gives you a conversation point that is unique to your home renovation.
Grey Water Switch
Water conservation and lowering your overall water usage throughout the home may be part of your home renovation plan. If it is, then you know a grey water system may be an ideal option. Usually, this requires a full grey water system that operates through a direct connection into the areas you want the grey water collected and used. A plumber can create the system, install it, and go the extra step by installing a switch that allows you to turn off the grey water system and switch to using the traditional plumbing system. This is an ideal hack if you want the flexibility of where your water goes and how it is used.
Tankless Water Heater
One of the areas in your plumbing that may use a large amount of energy is your water heater. A traditional water heater uses energy around the clock to heat the water in the tank and keep it hot, so when you are ready to use it in your shower or bath it is ready to go. This means you are constantly paying out on your energy and heating bill. A hack to this is to have a plumber install a tankless water heater. This type of heater heats the water as it is being used. There is no water being held in a tank which cuts down on the risk of having a huge leak or flooding if the water tank is damaged. It also helps reduce your energy bills since you only heat the water as needed instead of all the time.
These are just a few hacks that can make your plumbing and home energy run smoother.
