You May Need New Sink Fixtures!

Your faucet is one of the most used fixtures in your home, and it gets constant wear and tear every single day. Faucets in the kitchen and the bathroom get hit the hardest, whether you’re just washing your hands, doing dishes or simply rinsing something off – there’s going to come a point where you’re going to need to replace your faucet! This article will explore the answers for knowing when is the right time to change your faucet, and how you can prevent your faucet from needing more or as much work done in the future.

When is it necessary to replace my faucet?

While some of the time you may just think there could be a fluke in your sink when it’s acting funky (or maybe you just deemed it out of style and have the itch to get a new one), but nine times out of ten there’s a good explanation as towhy your sink is acting this way. Here are two of the main signs that your faucet needs to go:
• A leaky faucet is the absolute worst. If water is coming out anyway but the faucet, it needs to go.
• If it’s cracked. Try and catch cracks before they get too bad – if you don’t, you’ll be in a whirlwind of problems before you know it.

How Can I avoid my faucet from being broken in the future?

Keeping a good eye on the seat washers that are on your faucet is the number one cause for having a leaky faucet, simply checking it every so often by taking off the decorative cap to make sure nothing is rusted or cracked is the perfect preventative strike to know that your faucet is in good health. Your seat washer will be held in place by a brass screw as well. If this is also in good shape, your faucet should be healthy for a little while longer.

Cocking can be used to patch cracks (if you don't mind the look) and can hold your faucet together for a small time being. Calling a plumber to come over and take a look if you think something could be wrong is also another get preventative strike.
