As part of the general guide to installing a dishwasher, we’ve compiled a list of tips to help you avoid mistakes and making unnecessary trips to the hardware store for parts. Continue reading to find out more helpful information regarding dishwasher installations.
What Are The Dimensions Of Your Dishwasher Area
Calculate the width and length of your current dishwasher. Try to remember how far the counter is from the floor as well. Give your installer this information so that it can be compared to the new dishwasher’s measurements.
The Appropriate Parts Are Essential
Dishwashers used to be assembled using pieces that came with them. As time passed, producers started using less expensive parts to cut expenses. Basic parts like water intake hoses and power cords are not included in the initial box. For this reason, make sure you have fast access to universal component kits. That is even more the reason to rely on the team at Alpha Plumbing for your dishwasher installation needs.
Locate Your Shut Off Valve
If you reside in an older home or apartment, this is an important step to keep in mind. See if your home’s water shut-off valve is located there or in a nearby cabinet. Check to see that your shut-off valve is in good condition, has a metal connection, is free of rust, and doesn’t require any plumbing adjustments.
Turn Off The Power From Your Electrical Panel
Find your electrical panel to see if you can safely turn off the power to your kitchen while installing the dishwasher. This is essential to the process, as you can ensure safety on the job with this helpful tip.
