A stained, leaky shower or a cracked bathtub can ruin the look of an otherwise attractive bathroom. If corrosive stains and leaky drains mar the appearance of your shower or bathtub, then contact Wingate Plumbing, Greater Cincinnati’s premier plumbing specialists.

Wingate Plumbing can repair stained, leaky showers and cracked bathtubs so that they look and work like new. A leaky shower head can slowly corrode the enamel or tile surrounding it, leaving unsightly stains on your shower and bathtub walls. A cracked bathtub can allow moisture to leak into surrounding areas, potentially rotting away the foundation on which it rests. Both problems can be difficult to repair on your own. But Wingate Plumbing has the professional experience and equipment necessary to repair your shower and bathtub.

Shower Faucets

By repairing just one leaking shower faucet, you can save over 2,700 gallons of water a year, which will reduce your monthly water bill and also make your home more environmentally friendly. Leaky shower faucets have a negative impact on the environment. Freshwater ecosystems are some of the most diverse, but they are also the most endangered. Dwindling water supplies increase the threat posed to these ecosystems; as water supplies continue to dwindle, species that make freshwater ecosystems their home must compete with humans for access to freshwater. One of the most damaging and disruptive threats to these ecosystems are the dams and canals that must be built to provide human habitations with freshwater. By fixing your leaky shower faucet you are helping to take some of the pressure off of these fragile ecosystems.

By switching to a low-volume shower head and shorter showers, you’ll save 22.5 gallons each time you bathe.

To save even more water and help the environment install a low-volume shower head and limit your showers to five minutes. By switching to a low-volume shower head and shorter showers, you’ll save 22.5 gallons each time you bathe.

Bathtubs

Bathtubs are prone to leaky faucets and stains. Bathtubs come in many shapes and sizes. Most modern bathtubs are made of fiberglass, solid acrylic or coated cast iron. Fiberglass bathtubs are the least expensive, but they are also the least durable unless treated with an acrylic topcoat. Solid acrylic tubs are more lightweight and more durable. Cast iron tubs are the most traditional form of bathtub. They are coated with a porcelain enamel. All bathtubs, however, are vulnerable to scratches and corrosion. Wingate Plumbing can refinish and repair all varieties of bathtubs, ensuring that your bathroom looks its best.

Clogged Drains and Pipes

Even a small sliver of soap can cause a clogged drain in a bathtub or shower.

Bathtubs and showers are also vulnerable to clogged drains. Clogged drains and pipes in these fixtures need to be promptly repaired. Each type of drain and pipe in your household is susceptible to particular types of blockages. Debris can slowly build up in bathtub and shower drains and pipes until a complete blockage results, causing inconveniences like overflows or slow drainage. Bathtubs and showers are especially prone to clogs caused by hair, soap and other debris. Even a small sliver of soap can cause a clogged drain in a bathtub or shower. Human hair is especially common in clogged drains; it will not deteriorate and it behaves in a spring-like manner that causes it to coil and to lodge in pipes and drains.

Leaking shower and bathtub faucets can cause significant waste of water and damage to your bathroom plumbing fixtures. The corrosion and discoloration these leaks cause further detract from the attractiveness of your bathroom. To fix your leaky faucets and damaged, discolored showers and bathtubs, contact Wingate Plumbing.

Wingate recently installed a furnace and a/c unit in my home. My experience was fantastic. The technicians faced many... challenges given the age of my home and a very small furnace closet. Nonetheless, they were successful. Everyone I dealt with was professional, friendly, accommodating, and highly/skilled. I couldn’t be happier with my new furnace and A/C. I simply cannot say enough good things about this company. Highly recommended.read more

Wingate Mechanical did a great job replacing our furnace and air conditioner. Chris (owner) and staff are extremely... professional, courteous and knowledgeable. They were always on time. We received email, a phone call and text with the persons picture that came out to our house, so we would know who to expect. Top notch company! They did excellent work! We are so excited to see and feel the difference with our new iWave-R (Air Purifier) and humidifier. We highly recommend using Wingate. Thanks, Chris, Michael, Ty and Tyler!read more

I started my Friday morning with a cold water faucet that would not shut off at 515am. Called them around 815 and... Dwayne was here at 10. He installed shut off valves so that I could still use the faucet without having to turn the whole house’s water supply off. A temporary fix until we could get a new faucet. Punctual, respectful, honest, thorough. I will definitely use them for all of my heating/cooling, plumbing, and electrical needs! Quality company!read more
