Design showroom

Tucked away on Ruh Court in Kiel is a resource that many may not be aware of.

At Meyer Plumbing, those who are working through the design and planning phases of remodeling or new construction projects will find a 1,000 sq. ft. plumbing showroom. Fixtures and faucets from leading brands are on display; everything from toilets, shower heads and faucets to the proverbial kitchen sink.

Showroom consultant, Linda Halfmann, has more than 20 years of experience in the plumbing and water treatment industries.

Her knowledge of product innovation, latest design trends and user-friendly features can streamline what, to some, is a seemingly overwhelming process of choosing fixtures for the home. “It’s important to match the product to the way the homeowner lives and will use the product,” she said. “There are no “cookie cutter” solutions and our showroom is a place to find more choices and options than can typically be seen in the big-box home stores.”

Some of the brands available are Delta, Elkay, Kohler, Moen and Sterling. Price points are competitive but the real advantage lies in finding just the right products, tailored to mirror the personal taste and style that is reflected throughout the home.

Halfmann emphasized that, as a full-service plumber, Meyer Plumbing’s customer service doesn’t end with the sale. “Should problems arise, we’re a ready resource, familiar with your home and project, and able to provide whatever service is needed to resolve the issue— truly, a one-stop shop.”

Change is good

Leading manufacturers use market research to identify changing needs and implement feature enhancements where plumbing products are concerned.

As a result, consumers now enjoy chair-height toilets for added comfort, handshowers that can be retro-fit to existing showers without opening the wall, kitchen sinks designed for soaking large pans and cookie sheets and toilet seats with built-in night lights.

The “age-in-place” trend continues in the bathroom as more consumers opt to remove bathtubs and eliminate stepping over the rim in favor of a shower designed to slide into the same footprint as the tub had.

“Products like these exist to allow consumers to remain in their own homes where the fixtures match the changing needs of the user,” said Halfmann.

Septic systems

Meyer Plumbing has extensive experience in every aspect of septic systems, including repair or replacement of an existing system and installation of new systems.

Meyer Plumbing can handle the entire septic system installation, from soil testing and pulling permits to system design and construction.

Three steps are usually involved. n Soil testing –Determining the correct system for your property.

n Septic design –Designing your septic system.

n Construction –Construction of the septic system, including excavation and restoration of the site.
