Have You Baby-Proofed Your Bathroom Plumbing?

New Renovated Bathroom in Lilburn GAWe consider ourselves a family-friendly plumber who cares about the safety of young kids in your household. Keeping a watchful eye on young toddlers and babies is an important job. While you may be careful to put up safety gates at your stairs and plugs in your electrical sockets, there are also some things you can do in the bathroom to ensure your child avoids harm. In fact, the bathroom can pose serious dangers to a baby and toddler. Water that is too hot from your faucets can scald your child, slippery surfaces can cause bad falls, and bathtub drowning is a realistic concern. Did you know that only 1 inch of water in the bathtub or toilet can be a drowning hazard?

Use these plumbing safety tips to significantly lower the risk of danger in your home during bath time and potty time:

  • Adjust your water heater to below 120 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Invest in a toilet lid lock
  • Install child-proof latch on bathroom door
  • Cover faucets with burn-prevention devices
  • Place anti-slip mats in your tub and shower
  • Wipe up water spills immediately to reduce falls
  • Use Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) to prevent risk of electrocution
  • Never leave a young child alone in the bath tub or shower

If you need more guidance or help in baby-proofing your bathroom for your child, please don’t hesitate to call us at Bynum Plumbing. While we are equipped to handle the big jobs, like septic installation and drain pipe repair, we also welcome the small plumbing projects that can make your home a safer place for your family. We can advise customers on specific water heaters, faucets and fixtures as well as the latest plumbing devices on the market to boost child safety.

Installers were great and very friendly. They appeared to know what they were doing, and I have had no problems with the Water Heater since the installation. They arrived well within the appointment window, and called before arriving. Prices for services were reasonable. I would have given them 5 Stars, but they never reinstalled the door they had removed to facilitate the installation. I must admit I was very surprised when I came home from work to see the door leaning up against a wall.

I found Bynum and Sons through my local Home Depot store. I needed a water heater at the house I had just bought. Bynum and Sons did a great job. They bought my water heater from home depot and brought it to my house for me. The installer was nice, professional, and fast. They hauled away my old water heater so I didn't have to deal with that. I would definitely use them again for my future plumbing needs!!!! There price was also better than the other plumber I checked.

Anthony arrived within the allotted time window and did a great job replacing my kitchen faucet. He found an issue with the soap dispenser installation but he quickly resolved it. He went the extra mile, very much appreciated!
