Your plumbing system is one of the most important systems in your home. While we certainly use our plumbing fixtures every day, we often take them for granted and fail to recognize when they need replacement until it is too late. Fixtures refer to your faucets, sinks, showerheads, toilets or anything that delivers clean water to your home or takes away wastes. When one or more of your fixtures breaks down, it can bring the efficiency, comfort and convenience of your home to a screeching halt.
It is best to recognize when a fixture needs to be replaced before it actually breaks down completely. To determine if fixture replacement is a good idea, ask yourself the following questions:
- Is your toilet, faucet or other fixture working like it once did? If your toilet runs slower or your kitchen sink gets clogged more frequently than it used to, it may be time for a new one. Old or worn fixtures that aren’t operating at max performance can often lead to costly repair services. At this point, a new fixture will actually save you money over the long-term.
- Is your fixture showing signs of rust? If you see rust around your faucets, you may not be getting the clean water you need. For the sake of your family’s health, consider replacing rusting fixtures.
- Are your fixtures energy-efficient? If you have an outdated toilet model or faucet model, you may not be missing out on more energy-efficient options that are on today’s market. You’ll be amazed at how much you can save on your monthly energy bill by replacing your fixtures with a more efficient model.
