Installing Kitchen Appliances.

The sturdiest and handiest of us in Central Illinois may feel that installing an appliance such as a refrigerator, stove, or dishwasher may be a DIY job.  The fact is, paying someone to install an appliance can put your mind at ease knowing the job will be done right.  Ask yourself if you feel comfortable doing the job yourself.

Here are some things you should know before trying to install an appliance on your own –

1.  Do you have enough room to work with?
2.  Is there door-swing clearance?
3.  Avoid overloading the circuit.
4.  Remember to shut off the water or gas valve.
5.  Is your appliance level?

You see what we mean?  There are a lot of variables.  Penny wise and pound foolish has been a mantra for centuries.  It originated in England more than 500 years ago!  Don’t be a victim or your own bravado call Morton IL. area kitchen appliance installer Dave Bailey of Dave Bailey Plumbing and have the job done right and guaranteed the first time.  Just call (309) 265-6788.

The Advantages of a Water Filtration System.

Of all the different types of water filtering systems and upgrades available for your Central Illinois home, the most convenient is probably a whole house system.  A POE (Point of Entry) is installed at a single point where the main water supply line enters your home.

Obviously, the biggest advantage of a filtering system is to your family’s health. These filtration systems filter out unsafe levels of chlorine, sediments, and other chemicals that can be found in the water that flows to your house.  An effective chlorine filter reduces the amount of chlorine inhaled and consumed while drinking, washing, and bathing.

When you have made the decision to have a whole house water filtration system please give us a call.  We are Dave Bailey Plumbing proudly serving the plumbing needs of East Peoria, Morton, Pekin and the surrounding area.  Check out our website at  Call us anytime at (309) 265-6788.
