3 Sure Ways To Spoil Dad This Father's Day

Give Dad a Relaxing Father’s Day This Year

With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to find that perfect gift for dad. This year, instead of the classics like books, gadgets, or ties, why not give the gift of relaxation by tackling one of the household plumbing issues he hasn’t had time to get to himself? Whether repairing a leak, upgrading an ancient fixture, or even springing for a bathroom remodel, this gift is sure to bring joy to any dad’s heart. So keep reading for a few ideas and tips for plumbing upgrades and fixes that will make dad’s day!

Replace that Old Showerhead

Upgrading to a newer water-saving showerhead can lead to significant savings on the utility bill - what dad wouldn’t be happy about that?

Most newer showerheads also use an aerator to boost the water pressure, so the more recent model may even have better pressure as it uses less water. Another great idea is to get dad a luxurious rain showerhead. As the name suggests, these simulate concentrated rainfall for a relaxing shower experience while covering a wider area than typical showerheads.

Plumbing Upgrades Every Dad Will Love

A showerhead upgrade is just one of many possible ways to level up dad’s bathroom. A fancy new smart toilet with a night light, heated seat, automatic flush, or bidet may be just the ticket. Or perhaps he could use a touchless faucet when he comes in with grease or dirt on his hands from working on a project outside.

Making personal changes such as these is a great option, but for those who want to go all out - or if dad (or mom) can’t stand the tired old fixtures anymore - an entire bathroom remodeling may be the way to go. In any case, it’s always a good idea to bring in a professional to handle the more complicated installations or big projects.

Fix That Leaky Faucet That’s Been Driving Him Crazy

If dad has mentioned a faucet or showerhead drips or leaks around the base, that’s the best place to start. Even one leaky faucet can add up to a lot of wasted money.

Fortunately, these types of leaks are usually fairly easy and inexpensive to fix - it generally comes down to replacing a single valve or gasket. Tackling a small project like this can save dad on his monthly water bill (which he’ll surely love) and give him one less chore on his day off (which he’ll likely love even more)!
