Approaching your faucet every day is a part of a standard routine for most people. Whether you go to your faucet to brush your teeth, wash your dishes or fill your bathtub, you usually turn it on with no thought about how or why the water flows for you. Absolute Best Plumbing is Central Florida’s trusted leader when it comes to expert faucet repair and installation services.
Keeping To The Correct Side
Did you know that there are standard sides for the hot and cold handles on a faucet? It is standard in North America for hot water to be on the left side and cold water on the right. When and if this is ever reversed, it can result in a scalding hand washing or an icy initial splash in your shower.
Counterclockwise or clockwise is another big consideration for faucets. There is no specific requirement for this, however, compression faucets usually open counterclockwise and close clockwise. More modern style faucets do not always follow this convention. Lever-operated and quarter-turn faucets handles for both hot and cold are parallel to the front of the sink and pointing away from each other when they are closed. When they are open they are pointing toward you.
When it comes to faucet installation and repair, some aspects are standard, however, there are a lot of combinations of types, styles, and colors available to you. You’ll need to decide on a mounting type, color, finish, construction and control options.
Call Absolute Best Plumbing for your plumbing repair services for a leaking faucet or faucet installation services for your home or commercial property.
