September gardening tips and ideas. Make the most of the months of gardening effort you've put in. If it's chilly outside, bring fragile plants inside. It's time to sow winter bedding plants and spring bulbs. Mow the lawn again to eliminate all the raking-induced creeping grasses and weeds.
You'll need a big basin or bucket to collect any leaky connections. Take pictures as you go so you can retrace your steps. If you're replacing or repairing a faucet, photograph the pipes before dismantling them. You may use a jigsaw with a down-cut wood blade to enlarge or alter the form of a cut-out in your countertop. If you're installing new faucets, follow the directions that came with them.
The toilet is the second most utilized bathroom item after the sink. The diameter of your spigot and soil pipe will help you choose the right one. Close-coupled toilets come in two styles: back-to-wall and rear, front, and side. Before buying a new toilet, measure the height, diameter (of the spigote and the soil pipe) and the placement of the soil pipes. Because you can't crawl beneath or around the pipes, back-to-wall toilets are harder to clean than open-back toilets.
A mixer shower with or without a pump, a power shower, or an electric shower are all options. A heating element, similar to that found in a kettle, heats the water as it passes through an electric shower. Before you can begin installing your shower, you must first prepare the pipes and create an electrical connection. There is no need for a pump if you have a combination boiler or if your cold water is delivered directly from the mains water supply. An electric shower needs its own dedicated circuit from the consumer unit, and the final connection should be completed by an electrician for your own safety.
