Three Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Plumbing Fixtures

July 18, 2017

Plumbing fixtures are often overlooked, but they serve a vital purpose AND they can be an attractive feature in your kitchen or bathroom. Even though they are often “workhorses,” there will come a time that your fixtures require replacement. The plumbing experts at Affordable Service Plumbing and HVAC have compiled this list of three signs it may be time to upgrade:

• You are Concerned with Water Use – Today’s fixtures are developed with low-flow features. However, unlike the old options, you will hardly notice a change in pressure and “feel.” If your water bill seems just a bit too high, new fixtures may be the answer.

• Your Home Looks Dated – Nothing dates a kitchen or bathroom faster than fixtures from the 1980’s. Browse through some decorating magazines or watch the latest remodeling shows on TV and you’ll notice that styles have changed. Why not change your fixtures too?

• You Notice Corrosion or Scale – While some of this can be cleaned, there comes a time that you can’t get your fixtures as clean as you’d like. If corrosion is not addressed, it can lead to catastrophic failures. Replacing will save you time and effort and improve the look of your home.

While it is possible to change some plumbing fixtures yourself, when it comes down to it a quality installation job can make all the difference. If you would like more information about replacing your fixtures, reach out to us at Affordable Service. We look forward to working with you.
