Treat Dad to the Best Father's Day Ever
This Father's Day, Dad doesn't want another tie. He doesn't wish to do more macaroni art, either. Instead, he wants something he can use all year long – and what could be better than some bathroom remodeling?
Installing a new shower head is one of the many ways families and homeowners can make this Father's Day special. They should also consider installing other plumbing upgrades and fixing any pesky problems.
Get a Showerhead Upgrade
Many people have used the same showerhead for many years with no complaints. However, research suggests that homeowners should change their showerheads once every six to eight months. Reasons include:
- Sediment build-up: Believe it or not, "hard water" exists. Too much sediment builds up in a showerhead, giving running water a gritty, stiff feeling. This isn't exactly sanitary, either. Sediment can include dirt, gravel, and other unwanted debris.
- Bacteria: Bacteria loves to grow in moist, dark places – and what better place than a showerhead? While homeowners can try to clean their showerheads every few weeks, the best way to get rid of bacteria is to get a new showerhead.
- New technology: There are hundreds of new showerheads on today's market. Some come with built-in LED lights, while others come with Bluetooth speakers. Right now, rain shower heads are extremely popular. They make it feel like standing in a rainstorm – without fear of thunder or lightning.
Opt for a Plumbing Upgrade
Upgrading the plumbing system is more than installing a new showerhead. It's also about installing:
- Touchless faucets. Touchless faucets are perfect for dads who spend a lot of time working outside. With a touchless faucet, they don't have to worry about getting the sink dirty; they tap the side of the faucet, and water comes streaming out. May touchless faucets even come with smartphone apps, so one can easily control the faucet's temperature.
- A low-flow toilet: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that low-flow toilets use only 1.28 gallons a flush, much lower than most standard toilets on today's market. For the best possible results, homeowners should get a toilet with the "WaterSense" label when shopping for a new toilet. That means the toilet conserves water per the EPA's standards.
These upgrades do more than reduce the monthly water bill; they can also give Dad some of that R&R he's been craving.
Fixing That Leaky Faucet
Fixing that annoying leak does more than take another chore off Dad's plate; it also:
- Prevents mold growth: The longer a leak persists, the more likely mold will grow around the leak. This can threaten both the home's structural integrity and residents' health.
- Saves water and money: Per the EPA, a single leak can waste up to 90 gallons daily. Fixing a leak isn't a frivolous bathroom remodeling task; it's necessary for the home's overall maintenance and to save money on water bills.
- Reducing rust: Leaks can lead to rust. Over time, this can weaken pipes, making them more prone to leaks in the future.
