Busy work schedules are preventing installers from taking time off, according to a recent study. In fact, plumbers and gas engineers are believed to only take 18 days of holiday per year, that’s ten days less the entitled 28 days of other UK employees. So how can installers boost their earnings and still have time to take a well-earned break?
A quick fix
To maintain a healthy income stream, plumbers needed to be able to execute installations quickly and easily, allowing them to move on to the next job.
Quick installation products like Bristan’s range of Easyfit kitchen taps and compatible sinks help to keep jobs on schedule.
The integral Easyfit base and pre-fitted flexi tails mean that the Easyfit tap body can be fixed to the sink with minimal fuss, saving valuable time for the installer. Simply hook up the hose tails, push on the tap and tighten the grub screw.
Plus, with a wide choice of Easyfit taps for customers to choose from, there will be no time wasted searching for a particular style or finish.
Choice and flexibility
Offering flexibility for both the installer and end user, the electric shower provides an exceptional quick and easy replacement option. Electric showers can be installed practically anywhere, as they only require a cold-water mains supply and an electrical connection.
Bristan’s electric models, for example, allow installers to choose between multiple water and cable entry points, which are located at the rear bottom left, rear bottom right, bottom left, bottom right and top left – providing a huge amount of flexibility. This means no tricky pipework adjustments, which equals less hassle for the installer and less disruption for the homeowner.
What’s more, the adjustable footprint of Bristan’s electric units easily fits over the wall fixings of other manufacturers’ showers. With an additional extra-long 650mm riser rail and an adjustable bracket, the range will cover the majority of previous fixing holes, resulting in a neat and tidy installation.
Delayed jobs can play havoc with a plumber’s workflow. Because of this, products that can be installed in stages are really useful for plumbers who are doing their best to manage multiple jobs at one time.
Bristan’s Wallmount 12 bar shower fixing kit features flexible inlets with built-in isolation for easy connection to existing pipe work. It’s ideal for scenarios such as new build installations, where multiple trades are working within the same environment, often at the same time. The Wallmount 12 enables plumbers to connect water supply at first fix and install the shower at second fix, avoiding interfering with tiling or sealing work, or risking damage to the shower unit.
The Wallmount 12 also allows plumbers to isolate the water supply from the front of the wall for quick and easy replacement of bar showers, making it a great choice for retrofit installations too.
