16 Jan To fit a shower

To fit a shower is very important to know if : is a power shower or electric shower. There are very important differences and probably the most noticeable are : the pump [the electrical one does not have it] and the way they are “fed” [power shower is fed with both cold and hot water on the other hand the electrical shower is fed only with cold water].

Now you can start to think what else should be included  the costs and time estimates. If is a power shower then we should look if there are any cabling and pipework to be considered. Wall tiles damage included? Well include that too. Important to note that presented considerations are not complete. In the case of the power shower you should consider if it is required to move doors, rerouting and connect the waste  to new drain positions; fixings and wood panels; ;fit a new quadrant shower tray; seal shower and skirting. Is there and extractor fan to be added? Then let’s consider this too. Not the last we should understand that no job in the bathroom is mess free and there is waste to be disposed of.

13 May Do you have an average cost of a repair?

Not necessary. Based on the type of job and availability we have different charging rates. It is very important to understand that every job is different from another and this is determined by the: what is broken where is broken how bad is broken Is the shower? Is the sink? Is a pipe? We need to determine what is actually broken. Is the shower hose? Is the shower outlet elbow? Where is broken? We need to determine where is broken if our customer cannot describe the issues clearly. Is the shower hose cracked? Is the shower outlet elbow leaking water bit no signs of crack? Visual inspection needs to take place.  ...
