Making small upgrades to your fixtures can change the aesthetics of the room and make all the difference!  Think about installing a new showerhead, faucet, sink or toilet to improve the overall look.  And remember, by installing water-saving fixtures you can also save money on your water bill!  For bathroom do’s and don’ts click here.
  3. Repair existing plumbing problems
    • There are some plumbing issues in your home that you may have been ignoring for quite some time—slow drain? Leaky faucet? Running toilet? Water spot on your ceiling? While you can live with these issues, constant leaks and drips can become costly—especially when it comes to your water bill. Have existing plumbing issues fixed before putting your home on the market.
  4. Upgrade your kitchen
    • Kitchen remodels can be expensive, but certain things like changing out your sink, faucet, or even adding a garbage disposal can increase the value of your home.
  5. Add some little luxuries
    • Did you know that adding little plumbing luxuries can make your life that much easier? Here are a few upgrades to consider:
      • Have extra room in your garage? Add a utility sink!
      • Do you love to garden, but don’t have a convenient outdoor faucet? Add a new hose bibb to give you better access to water outside.
      • Does your home have a gas supply line? Consider installing a line directly to your outdoor grill or fireplace.
