Plumber Safety Beach: Clyde Road New Ministops & Flexi hoses

Mini stops are not actually a requirement of the Victorian Building Authority to be installed at basins although our Mornington Peninsula Plumbers will always install them at every water point as this is very good practice as plumbers. If you where to get a burst flexible hose for example or your mixer was to blow out you can just turn the water off at the mini stops rather than at your water meter and you can than still use the water to the rest of your home while you wait for a Mornington plumber to come and rectify your plumbing products issues.

On this occasion our Somerville Plumber “Daniel” received a phone call to install a small vanity unit with a new mixer and connect it to the water and waste piping. The customer was doing a small upgrade to their bathroom and had already had a tiler in to tile the wall and pre-purchased a ready made cabinet for the vanity.

We sent out our Plumber Frankston located and Mount Martha Plumber together to get the job done in a timely manner. They cut the holes required in the Vanity and turned the water off draining what was left into a bucket making sure not to make a mess. Once they had  moved the Vanity into position they realized that the Lugged elbows where very far back into the wall so some lugged elbow extensions where needed for this job. Using these extension meant that chrome cover plates would not fit onto the back wall of the vanity to hide the holes although it was a small compromise to have water flowing into the basin.

We installed the new mixer, screwed on the new mini stops and connected the water up. After this we installed a new plug & washer into the basin and set up the trap and waste running out through the wall. After thorough testing of the new fixture for leaks we caulked it back to the wall and the job was complete. Our customer was happy with the new feature in her bathroom and loved the new modern look it brought to the room.
