Portland Oregon plumber teaches bathroom remodeling

Bathroom Remodeling Contractor Portland Oregon

Bathroom plumbing and remodeling importance cannot be over-emphasized. You'll agree with me that we are living in an era where unwinding at home has become a trend for many people. Who doesn't like to spend time in the comfort of their homes, anyway? Home relaxation is a great way to unwind after a busy and or stressful daily activity. Now, wouldn't it be worth it to add some life to that bathroom which has evolved from being just a place to wash into a haven of relaxation and comfort?

Planning Your Bathroom Remodeling

If you have been following my plumbing help and tutorials, you would know already that all plumbing starts with having a structured plan. There is a lot to consider when planning your next bathroom plumbing. First is your finance. The truth is - you can actually redesign your bathroom with as low as $100. Strange as this may seem but with a proper planning, you can achieve a new restored look in your bathroom without having to spend a fortune.

Another factor to consider is space - Choosing your bathtub, shower and other remodeling fixtures depends solely on the space you have on ground. You don't want to stuck fixtures in a limited space and then struggle to navigate in your bathroom - Not good. Choose your plumbing equipments and fixtures according to size of your bathroom. Get advice from your plumber or bathroom remodeling contractor if you are not sure what to choose. Family size is another point to consider when making your remodeling decision. Are you a homeowner who is just starting out life or do you have a large family. You don't want to choose a high bathtub in your very young kids' bathroom. Have your family at the back of your mind when you discuss your next remodeling project with your plumbing contractor or when you go out to shop for plumbing fixtures.

Now you are reading this article because you probably are tired of the old look of your bathroom or perhaps because you want to flow with the time and have a home improvement that can be best described as trendy. In any case, style plays an important role in choosing fixtures for your bathroom plumbing and remodeling. Starting from lighting, to patterns and colors, a right choice of these and other combination of fixtures can transform your bathroom to that "paradise" you so desire. You can't go wrong with freestanding bathtubs as this is top on the list of modern bathroom equipments. So look out for those when you go shopping for a new look in your home. Showers with lots of jets, huge shower heads on horizontal arms and double showers are also top on the trending plumbing fixtures. No matter the choice you make, always look out for showers with high water-efficiency rating.

Choosing Your Color

We can't wrap up our bathroom remodel style without mentioning color. Choosing your color depends solely on your personality and mood. I would choose bright colors, though, because bright colors light up my mood and i find deep relaxation in my bathroom. Home sweet home.

Sewage Backing up Into House or Yard

Question
BACKGROUND: We have a septic system. Sewage was flowing out into the yard. The clean out was found to have the cap missing, which was replaced. Once the cap was replaced, the sewage began to back up in the house. When we would wash dishes, sewage would bubble up into the bathtub, the toilet would not go down, the bathroom sink would drain slow and gurgle. First plumber ran snake, said it was not clogged by us, but that the piping was laid wrong. Next plumber dug up where piping runs to septic tank, said there was grease clogging, also another fitting (? I don't really know proper terminology) was broke off--so said it wasn't draining right.
QUESTION: How long would it take for grease to clog system enough to back it up? We have lived here two years and never put grease down drain. Could this be from previous inhabitants? System has not been serviced since we've lived here, could that be problem? thank you

Answer
Sewage backing up into your yard or house does not have a direct relationship with "how long it would take for grease to clog system enough to back it up". In your situation, there are two most common causes of the back up. The first possibility is that your "out-going line/lines is/are clogged", and the second is that your "outlet baffle on the out-going side of your sewage tank is clogged" or "not functioning properly"

To determine what's responsible for the blockage, your "Distribution Box" (D-box) needs to be dug up. If the distribution box is dry, then know that the blockage is in the outlet baffle. And if the Distribution Box is flooded, then the out-going pipe/pipes connected from the Distribution Box and leading to the...
