Even the fixtures made of the most durable materials cannot retain their qualities forever. This should come as no surprise, particularly because your fixtures experience direct physical contact on a daily or even hourly basis.
It is always important to seek support from a knowledgeable technician if you ever notice:
- Leaking or dripping faucets and showerheads
- Bathtubs, showers, or toilets that have come unsealed
- An accumulation of water around the base of your sink, toilet, or tub
- Rust gathering around the joints of your faucets, knobs, and handles
- Fixtures that are loose, disconnected, or broken
Never attempt to handle a malfunctioning fixture on your own, since this could result in irreparable damage. By speaking to our professionals at GAP Plumbing Inc., you can potentially avoid an unnecessary replacement.
What to Consider When Seeking New Fixture Installations
Selecting the right fixtures for your home or company, whether you are embarking on a project for new construction or renovation, is a serious business. You are likely to be excited about choosing the unique style that matches your own individual personality and tastes, but while this is certainly a significant factor to consider, it is also critical to think about all the other important aspects of your fixtures as well.
For example, the overall functionality of the fixtures you choose needs to be at the forefront of your mind before installation. There are plenty of taps and showerheads out there that can look elegant and sleek, but they are not suitable for constant handling. You also need to consider durability, since some materials last longer than others. Most importantly, it is critical to think about your budget, taking full account of the overall cost of each fixture as well as the installation, so you never discover that you do not have enough money to finish the project.
What Causes a Faucet to Drip?
The most common cause of a leaky faucet is worn-out washers or O-rings. These two create a watertight seal between the faucet and the sink. However, they can become worn down or harden over time due to mineral deposits. To fix a leaky faucet, you will need to replace the old washer or O-ring with a new one that fits correctly.
