World Plumbing Day Instagram Q and A

To celebrate World Plumbing Day on Thursday 11th March, we enlisted our Bristan experts to answer all your plumbing-related questions.  From shower recommendations to cleaning tips, here are the questions asked by you and answered by our Bristan experts.


Q: What shower would you recommend for a family bathroom?

A: Our newly updated Buzz and Craze bar showers feature our Safe Touch Technology, which means the bar is shrouded by cold water and always cool to the touch. Guaranteed family safety.


Q: Am I okay to use chemicals when cleaning my taps?

A: We don’t advise using products that contain alcohol, hydrochloric acid or phosphoric acids. Cleaning with warm, soapy water and wiping dry with a microfibre cloth will do the job!


Q: What shower would you recommend for a couple on a budget?

A: Our Zing and Frenzy are both under £200! Both have a sleek look, Safe Touch technology and Wallmount 12 technology for easy install. They also both come with a five-year guarantee. 


Q: What’s the best way to remove limescale from my shower?

A:
1) Remove the shower handset and dip into a bowl or bucket of white vinegar. 
2) If you have a plastic handset, leave for one hour. 
3) If you have a brass showered, then don’t leave it in for any longer than 30 minutes.
4) Once soaked, rinse with water and replace. 


Q: What shower would you recommend for a small space?

A: A Bristan Mini Valve. These showers have a small body and adjustable pip centres that will adjust from 110-155mm to easily fit any existing installation. You can choose from a contemporary or traditional design to suit any bathroom.


Q: Do you have any products that are cost efficient to help me save money?

A: Water saving products are a great way to cut bills down. We have a range of taps that can be fitted with a flow regulator. Plus, our Zing and Carre bar showers are great eco-friendly showering options.


Q: How can you spot a good plumber?

A: They’re carrying a Bristan P&P of course!
