Get Your Fixin’ About Fixtures

Your fixtures connect to your plumbing system, delivering clean water to the places you need it and then draining away the dirty water.

When it comes to fixtures, one-size-fits all is rarely what consumers want. That’s why fixtures come in a variety of colors, materials and finishes—to meet everyone’s tastes. However, appearance isn’t everything. Performance matters, too.

Fixtures are meant to make your life easier, not harder. So, if you find yourself consistently frustrated over your fixture’s performance, it’s time to make a change.

Here’s how to tell if the following fixtures need upgrades:

Stop Your Toilet From Toying Around

Toilets have long lifespans, which is why most upgrades are purely for aesthetic purposes. For instance, during a remodel, a homeowner will most likely upgrade his or her toilet’s design to match the new décor.

But that’s not all. Here are other factors that indicate your toilet needs to be replaced:

  • Your toilet bowl is cracked. Most toilet problems can be fixed without replacing the whole unit. But, unfortunately, the only way to resolve a crack in your toilet’s porcelain is by completely replacing it.
  • Your toilet’s efficiency needs a refresh. With water costs rising, upgrading a conventional toilet to a dual flush toilet will reduce your water consumption. This, in turn, will flush away those costly water bills and cascade into savings.
  • Your toilet leaks, gurgles or moves while it’s in use. These are issues that need to be addressed immediately. Aside from safety hazards, these issues will cause your water bill to skyrocket.

Faucet Problems Leaked Here!

For the most part, faucets can be repaired and rejuvenated easily. However, if your fixture constantly needs a repair, then that’s not the case. A replacement is in store—as it is in these instances, too:

  • Modernize an outdated style & enhance its aesthetic appeal
  • Stop a dripping faucet from draining your budget
  • Reap the benefits of technological advancements (less water waste, easier to repair, etc.)

You Deserve Unsinkable Comfort

When it comes to upgrading your kitchen, bathroom or utility sink’s appearance, a small change in a fixture makes a huge aesthetic impact. However, the impact of replacing a leaking or dripping sink is even more significant. In fact, one drip of water per second drops 2,082 gallons of H2O a year!

Bring Your Water Heater in From the Cold

If your water loses its heat, you’ll lose your cool. The best way to avoid this chill-worthy catastrophe is to replace your water heater before it kicks the bucket. As a general rule of thumb, traditional water heaters last about 10-15 years while tankless water heaters last for about 20 years.

In addition to age, your water heater needs to be replaced if the:

  • Pilot light flickers out
  • Tankless water heater’s circuit breaker trips
  • Burner or heating element fails
  • Thermostat breaks
  • Valve sticks
  • Heater has leaks or rust around it
