Professional Dishwasher Install in Snohomish and King County, WA
Dishwasher Installation by Certified Professional Plumbers
Baikal Services® provides professional dishwasher install in Snohomish and King County, WA. When it comes to dishwasher installation, you have two basic options: do it yourself (DIY) or use professional installation. If you decide to do it yourself (DIY), be aware that you must know much more about plumbing and electrical than you may think and that in the end, it may cost you a lot more than if you used professional installation initially. There are many things to consider if you do not want to get “shocked” by the electricity or cause a significant flood in your home.
Dishwasher install may be more complicated than it may seem to the average homeowner. Up to 80% of homes older than 20 years old usually need a new shutoff valve installed because the older valve fails to shut off completely. Different manufacturers require different installation guidelines for their particular dishwasher. Some manufacturers want air gaps installed with their dishwashers, and some want for their dishwasher to be supplied with cold water (dishwashers usually supplied with hot water). Certain jurisdictions require different codes when it comes to dishwasher install. Some jurisdiction codes may conflict with the manufacturer’s guidelines. Manufacturer’s guidelines usually override the authority having jurisdictions.
Water hammer arrestors are required in today’s plumbing code to be installed wherever a quick closing valve (solenoid valve) is installed. Appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators with water supply, ice makers, and clothes washers have solenoid valve build into their water supply system, therefore, need a hammer arrester to protect the solenoid valve from damage and protect the water pipes from water hammer.
It is always much safer bet to have a professional do the dishwasher installation for you. Leakage from an improperly installed dishwasher can cause you many more headaches and can end up costing you a lot more with unnecessary and expensive repairs. Allow Baikal Services® to do the dishwasher installation for you so that you can use it with confidence. Always use a certified, professional plumber to do the job right!
