You’ve just moved into a new home, but there’s one glaring part that you’re missing. When it comes to getting a home without a dishwasher, it can be an inconvenience for homeowners who’ve previously relied on this appliance. With loads of dishwashers on the market, finding a quality model is easy. Installing the dishwasher? That’s a whole other task. While DIY gurus may make it sound simple, our plumbers at Westside Plumbing, Inc. of Brownsburg are here to discuss why a dishwasher installation needs a professional touch.
Considering Hard Water
If your house is using a septic system or well, you can run into problems if the water isn’t treated. Your dishwasher will break quickly with hard water built up. With the experience of a professional plumber, we can discuss specific water treatment plans to best solve the issue.
Not Enough Power
Installing a dishwasher is more than just putting a plug in an outlet. It takes factoring in other aspects of your home to ensure it will work properly for years to come. In some instances, the power setup for the house can’t handle it. In other cases, the home’s plumbing system uses older galvanized metal pipes and can’t support the dishwasher either. It will take the calculations of our skilled plumber to see if an upgrade to the home’s plumbing is needed.
Age Old Issue
Speaking of old plumbing systems, that is one major factor to consider if DIY is doable for you. While most tutorials cover the basics of a modern setup, there’s no telling if a general set of instructions is going to be applicable to your unique home. Condos and homes without dishwashers tend to have older plumbing, so there may be an underlying reason why a dishwasher has never been installed. Gain peace of mind that it’s installed properly by our pros.
