How can hard water affect the quality of your faucet?
Water is considered hard when it includes a high concentration of calcium and magnesium mineral compounds that are derived from naturally occurring limestone, dolomite, and other types of bedrock. These substances are deposited and can accumulate on the inside and outside of piping and plumbing fixtures.
Over time, the mineral deposits build up and cause the outside of a faucet to look cloudy or dirty and may eventually slow or completely block the flow of water from the faucet.
When is it necessary to replace your faucet?
The most obvious time to replace a faucet is when it is leaking or broken and cannot be repaired by a professional plumber. Like all devices with moving parts, faucets will eventually wear out due to age and the effects of daily use. Faucets can also be broken due to accidents or rough handling. Hard water calcification is yet another reason to replace a faucet or plumbing fixture.
When is it necessary to replace your sink?
As with faucets, a sink that is broken or cracked must be repaired or replaced immediately. Sinks are also prone to scratching, hard water build-up, and other types of cosmetic damage that may make them look old and detract from the appearance of the entire room.
Many homeowners prefer to update their sinks during a home remodeling project in order to improve the look and function of their kitchen or bathroom.
What are some easy tips to avoid faucet leaks in the future?
Faucet leaks are easy to avoid by:
- Using high-quality faucets and replacement parts. Trying to save a buck now with cheap fixtures can lead to expenses down the road in the form of higher water bills and additional repair costs.
- Treating the faucets and other fixtures with care. Pulling, turning the handles too roughly, and other mistreatment might damage the seals or loosen the mechanical parts of the faucet.
- Calling a professional plumber rather than trying to make minor adjustments on your own. Over tightening the connections or using the wrong tools can damage a faucet, leading to leaks.
