Faucets, Sinks, Disposals & Dishwashers
Faucets & Sinks
Kitchen faucets likely get more use than any other faucet in the home. Whether you are looking for a like for like replacement or a complete upgrade, there are hundreds of options when it comes to a new kitchen faucet. One handle, two handle, goose neck, pull out spray, pull down spray, side spray, or even a touch activated faucet. You may not be limited to your existing configuration as sometimes we can add or remove items if there are the right number of holes in your sink or countertop. If you are interested in learning about the many options, feel free to contact us so we can show you what’s out there to help you make an informed purchase!
Inside of your bathroom you will find your vanity or lavatory faucet, which is probably the second most frequently used faucet in your home. Just like with the other faucets in your home there are plenty of options when it comes to choosing a new faucet. There are also spout height and spout reach options, along with many finishes and features available. With so many options and variables out there, be sure to call us to learn about all that’s available for your home!
These are probably some of our most commonly asked about faucets in the home. Most people enjoy their daily showering experience and want to take full advantage of some of the newer products and designs on the market. The big question is the same as all the others: do you know what’s even possible or available in your home? How much work is involved in installing multiple shower heads? What would it take to install a rain fall shower head? Am I able to have a spray wand with a grab bar? These are just a few of the questions we are asked almost daily. If you want to know what possibilities await within your shower walls, contact us today so we can show you what’s available!
There aren’t nearly as many options available with hose spigots as some of the other faucets in your home but there are still a few cool features that you may not be aware of. The best option in our opinion is the frost free spigot, which requires very little maintenance when it comes to winterizing. Check out our blog article here to learn more. If you are just wanting a standard faucet there are options available with a ¼ turn lever handle and there’s even a hot and cold faucet to wash your animals off with using warm water!
Do I need to replace my faucet or can I just repair it?
Many factors go into making a decision when it comes to repair vs. replace. The age of the faucet, the availability of parts, and the cost of the repair just to name a few! This is one area where I feel that we like to separate ourselves from the competition. We will never force you into a replacement option, we firmly believe in educating our customers in all of the options available and allowing YOU to make the final decision, YOUR HOME, YOUR CHOICE!
Am I limited to what I have in my home now?
Almost all of time the answer is,” No!” And this can be great news for someone wanting a more modern or updated look. They make kits now where we can remove a 2 or 3 handle shower faucet and install a single handle faucet with a much cleaner look. On kitchen and lavatory faucets also there are many options available when converting from a single handle to a dual handle or a dual handle to a single handle.
There are many different types of sinks in your home, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and mop sinks among others! There are plenty of options as far as drain location, bowl depth, and the material the sink itself is made out of. Are you looking to replace, upgrade, update or even relocate your sink? Feel free to contact us to learn what all of your options are!
The garbage disposal is an essential piece to any kitchen sink and to avoiding clogs in your drain line. Having a properly functioning disposal will effectively breakdown food particles to ensure solids are liquefied as much as possible, and can then be successfully washed down the pipes. Whether you’re taking preventative measures and replacing an aging unit, you would simply like an upgrade, or if your existing garbage disposal is making a different sound these days when in use and is showing the signs of failing mechanically, be sure to call Juniors for the information you need to make an informed purchase before you buy.
You can also check out this video for additional details on how a proper garbage disposal works, and more questions and common misconceptions about how garbage disposals certainly don’t work!
Can I have a garbage disposal if I’m on a private septic system?
This is one of the biggest misconceptions we hear routinely and the short answer is yes, all garbage disposals can be used on septic systems. We always recommend that no less than a ¾ HP disposal with septic systems as the additional grind chambers ensure that food particles are ground to a consistency that can be washed down the drain line and safely into your septic system. For added peace of mind, InSinkErator has also designed a garbage disposal specifically for homes who use a septic system. The Evolution Septic Assist garbage disposal comes equipped with a Bio-Charge Injection Technology that automatically injects more than 300 million enzyme-producing natural microorganisms into the InSinkErator Septic Assist each time it’s operated to assist with the breakdown of food waste, into the grind chamber. Call us today to set up an onsite inspection so we can help you determine what the best garbage disposal model is for your home.
If I don’t already have a garbage disposal is it too difficult or costly to add one?
Not necessarily, as the garbage disposals have come a long way and don’t take up quite as much space as they used to. InSinkErator has also designed a more compact model that has a sleek design which can be comfortably installed in even some of the smallest spaces! An outlet and switch can be installed neatly under the sink in the cabinets, or a countertop power push button option is also available now. Give us a call to schedule your onsite inspection and let our team give you options that work best for your specific set up.
