Faucets are among the most used household fixtures but often get overlooked. We might not even realize their importance in our daily chores until a faucet starts leaking or stops working.
So, what do you do when it stops working? More importantly, how do you when it is time to replace your faucet before it defects and hinders your household chores? Spare a few minutes and read on to find out.
When Is It Time to Replace Your Faucet
When you determine the reason(s) behind the dysfunction and defect of your kitchen or bathroom faucet, fixing the problems becomes relatively easy. However, if you don’t find any visible, small-scale, or minor issues when inspecting the faucets, it may be a hint towards bigger plumbing problems.
For this reason, we are here to help you determine the best time to replace your faucet through some of the most common and noticeable signs.
Often, it may be easy to fix a minor leak, whereas a major leak will require plumbing services by professionals. However, if you notice consistent leaks from faucets or around it even after several fixes and adjustments, then it might be time for you to let a professional deal with it. They will suggest replacing the entire faucet instead of bearing the annoying leakages over and over again through minor repairs.
Mineral Deposits (Visible)
Mineral deposits are a common nuisance; especially once the water gets affected, mineral deposits can greatly hinder the water supply of the faucets. Hence, the faucets no longer function optimally, and the mineral deposits keep on building up.
Generally, the mineral deposits are due to the impure water supply that carries excessive minerals like calcium, sodium, etc. Moreover, they appear similar to toothpaste linings on a curve.
Rust and Corrosion
Is your faucet made of rusty and corrosive elements that can also affect other household appliances near it? Well, it may occur due to abrasive minerals in the water or corrosive water supply elements.
They are a sign that faucets need replacement to ensure unhindered water supply, especially during other household chores like dishwashing or laundry.
