So we’re at a property here where they’re experiencing low pressure problems at certain times of the day and it can be a lot worse at night and a lot worse early in the morning which is annoying for the customer here because they want to use the water then. But also just generally they don’t feel like they’re getting enough mains water pressure at the moment. The system that their hot water is coming through is a combi boiler, they’ve got a water softener on the system as well so I’m pretty sure that the heat exchange in the combi boiler is not fired up.

So I’m happy to recommend to them to install one of the home boost pumps in here to try and improve their water pressure. The good thing about them as well is they’re really easy to install and they’ll go on 15mm and 22mm copper pipe. So if you open up our hot and cold tap here, this is our cold directly off the main and the hot is going through the heat exchanger as well. We’ve also got the same problem with the bath tap up here as well, I know that when I get home from servicing a load of boilers the first thing I want to do is jump in the bath. Right, we’ve actually got our pump here.

They don’t muck about, this is a real sturdy old beast here. There’s a few things you need to think about when you’re installing one of these. Make sure that you’re gonna put the home boost pump in a place where it’s well supported, make sure it’s got air around it for ventilation. Make sure there’s no cold water draw offs before the home boost pump, if there is you’re gonna have to put non return valves on them to stop any feedback or anything like that. So let’s quickly build the home boost pump up. So there we go, all done, we’re all in. We’ve just got that tied up, we got a little clip in here. Just a little clip down there as well, just gonna turn this water on now. Now just gonna run our plug through and under to our plug socket and get this up and running.

Right, so I’m gonna shut this now. Right so we’ve got our new home boost installed underneath this sink, we’ve got it plugged in, we’ve got the water back on, there’s no leaks, it’s nicely clipped up and it’s pretty much ready to go. All we need to do to finish off the installation is give the sparky a quick ring and get this nicely earth bonded up and also I might pop a few more clips in as well once we finish filming. But without further ado, let’s have a quick look and see how much it’s improved, the flow from the hot and cold just here. So now the pump’s noticed that we’re looking for some sort of flow and it’s kicked in so it’s looking better already. Oh wow, look at that. That is much better.

That is so much better. Ha! That’s getting on the clappers. Right, I’ll tell ya what, I didn’t actually expect it to be this much improved actually. I love who ever fitted this tap, it doesn’t quite drip into that basin. Anyway, let’s go have a look at the bath and see how that’s getting on. Right, well earlier on the bath room was pretty lackluster, didn’t really get very full. So let’s just yank this on. You can already hear how much better is it. That’s already coming through hot as well. I’m absolutely amazed, I’m absolutely amazed. To be honest guys, you’re gonna need to ask Salamander pumps how they’ve made this happen. (laughs)

There we go, the home boost is installed nice and easily so if you guys have any customers out there who have got a problem with their water pressure, definitely consult Salamander, give them a quick call. We’ll leave a link to their website in the description below so you can get a hold of their technical, they’re really helpful when it comes to deciding whether you actually need one of these or not. If you guys have got mini isolation valves in the line, then stuff like that, that’s the sort of thing you’re gonna need to take out first if you’ve got a problem with low water pressure. If you’ve done all that and you’ve still got a problem, then this could well be your solution.

How to Install Bathroom Faucet Plumbing with Randy from R Squared Renovations

How to Install Bathroom Faucet Plumbing with Randy from R Squared Renovations


Randy, a General Contractor in Dallas, TX and Owner of http://www.RSquaredRenovations.com, demonstrates how to install the plumbing for a bathroom faucet drain. If you are in the Dallas area and are looking to remodel your bathroom, give him a call at 972-998-8544. http://www.UniqueVanities.com

Transcription: Here we have the countertop sitting on the vanity, We’ve bought a p trap installation kit. You can get it at any home improvement store.

It comes with the P trap itself. That’s what we are looking for. The trap holds water in here so you don’t get sewer gas coming up back through.

We have a trap adapter mounted here. Essentially all these fittings are slip joint fittings. There is a plastic washer that has a cone shape. it’s what seals the pipe. It acts like a compression fitting that will seal this pipe onto that fitting there.

These have wings on them so they all need to be hand tightened. You really don’t need a wrench for these to fit together properly. Using a wrench would just cause them to break.

We have a 6 inch tail piece extension that will go on the bottom of the drain that came with our faucet. That slips into here and everything is adjustable. You have about an inch and a half worth of play in both of these up and down. Everything should go together without cutting anything and just by hand tightening everything.

If these parts are a little too long, they do make them in a 12 inch extension if your drain coming out of the wall was lower and you had a higher vanity they come in a 12 inch. You could cut these in two with a hacksaw, just make sure the inside edge is clean so that nothing catches on there.

Here I was able to use everything just how it is. I’ll put the trap in the trap adapter. I’ll put the tail piece extension on. Everything is fitting nice and comfortable. Nothing needs to be at a harsh angle. And then start tightening the fittings right where they are. Once you get everything snug you can go back and tightening everything.

And that’s pretty much how you install a drain. While we are under here we have the shut offs for the hot and cold water for the faucet. The hot side is marked. A common trade practice is the hot is always stubbed out on the left. If for some reason you knew that it wasn’t like your old faucet was reversed, that’s something you need to check before you take it apart so you do know the hot is on the left.

It’s not a big deal, you can always swap these two supply lines underneath here to get back to the proper working order.

We’ve removed the taps off these vales. They have a rubber washer on the bottom. We’ll hand tighten these. Once we feel them tighten up. We can put a wrench on them. Another half a turn. Not too tight. And we’re ready to turn the water on.

Turn it on. Work out the air in the line, let it run a little bit. Check all your fittings for leaks and it’s all dry then your installation is complete. Thanks again for being with us today. We’ll catch you back and show you some more remodeling tips with R Squared Renovations.

In which our heroes fuse with an alien, become a goo monster, and give Spiderman the business as we ask which Plumbing Boy would make the best symbiote? We wonder why Spiderman doesn’t just carry a bell with him at all times, try to figure out which symbiotes are alive and cops, and explain hospices. Zammit struggles to find a crime worth eating someone for, Duscher learns how to smell the dying, and Jackson just flips the script and ruins the symbiotes life. So get in touch with your dark side, learn to eat human beings, and then eventually go to space. Also watch Roseanne.
