Bathroom Home Directory is the best local resource.
I love the Bathroom Home Directory, it is a newly launched online directory with a very clever design. It offers the user a way to find local bathroom resources through geo location, so wherever you live you simply visit the site and it will ask you to let it access your location, and ‘bang’ up pop’s local bathroom showrooms, tile shops and bathroom installers all in on one website.
You can find local bathroom showrooms, plumbers, tilers and tile shop all via your location.
It also has a directory of bathroom manufacturers and lots of great contact information. A good blog section for news for products and other industry information.
It will even give you directions to the showroom, also has QR Codes (Quick Response) so you can scan all the places you want to visit.
Storm Bathroom Taps
I always get asked “why my new bathroom taps or mixers do not work as well as my old taps” well this is because in the UK there are very few true taps manufacturers most are simply importers and the products available on the market are not manufactured specifically for the low pressure market. So if you have a conventional water system with a cold water storage tank and a hot water cylinder in your airing cupboard then you will need to be careful with your product selection.
I like the way that tapstore.com explain about the high versus low pressure on their information pages which you can view here and the low pressure bathroom tap pages where they point out ranges with explanations that will work on a gravity fed water system.
There are products that will work on low pressure well but always double check the products specified minimum specified pressure rating.
The function of bathroom taps and mixers is so important if you make the wrong decision by the time you use your lovely new bathroom it could be too late the last thing you want is to wait 20 minutes to fill up a bath and by the time you get in it its cold, so take time and care in making the right choice.
