The bathroom is one of the most important areas in any home. After all, you and your family rely on the plumbing in your bathroom on a daily basis. It’s important for your day-to-day life that your bathtub or shower is working properly, so it can be a huge inconvenience if problems with your bath faucet are causing problems with your tub and shower. There are a few key issues to look for when deciding if it’s time to replace your bath faucet. When it comes to your bathroom, don’t wait for a problem to get out of hand, requiring a complete plumbing overhaul. Here are some things to look for if you’re asking yourself: is it time to replace my bath faucet?
If you’ve noticed the faucets in your tub and shower leaking, it can be a good indicator that they need replacing. This can be an easy one to miss, since after a while, you may get used to the dripping even when the faucets are turned off. But this can waste a considerable amount of water and leave plumbing issues unaddressed. After a while, even the faucet handles may leak at their base. These moving parts see a lot of use throughout the years, so keep an eye out for leaks as a sign that you should replace your bath faucet.
Rust and Grime
Rust and Grime may seem like normal wear and tear at first, but they can also be a sign that you should replace your bath faucet. After years of daily use, faucets can corrode due to natural rusting and excessive mineral build-up. If regular cleaning is no longer doing the trick, it may be time to replace your bath faucets.
Your bath faucet is connected to our shower. If you notice that your bath faucet leaks when the shower is on, it can indicate a problem with the water supply to the shower head or a diverter valve.
Bath Looking Dated
Sometimes, you just need to update your bathroom. If your faucets and other bath hardware are looking worse for wear or simply outdated, replacing them can leave your whole bathroom looking fresher. Trying a new style of faucet and hardware can even change the look of your whole bathroom.
