Your plumbing fixtures are meant to last a certain number of years before they begin to break down. If they’re very old and have issues, you may need a plumber in Darien, CT, from JNR Plumbing to come and fix or replace them. Here are the reasons when you should replace your bathroom fixtures with the help of our team.
Your bathroom sink should last for a good 20 to 30 years if it’s made of porcelain. These are the longest-lasting bathroom fixtures, but if you are experiencing regular leaks, it can be taken as a sign that it’s time to get plumbing services to replace your sink or its parts.
Very Old Fixtures
If your home is 50 or more years old and you’ve never had the plumbing upgraded, it maybe time to replace your bathroom fixtures. Older sinks, bathtubs, showers, and toilets are more prone to running into problems at this age, but it may not be worth the money to get plumbing repairs to fix them. Updating the fixtures is more worthwhile as it’s a better investment all around.
Low Water Pressure
If your water pressure is too low and it’s directly related to your old plumbing fixtures, you should consider replacing those fixtures. While you can get emergency plumbing, it’s better, in the long run, to get new bathroom fixtures instead.
Sinks and toilets that are made of porcelain and have cracks should immediately be replaced. Cracks are a major problem that cannot be fixed. They can also lead to unwanted water leaks and porcelain is as sharp, if not sharper than a razor blade.
