Have you been noticing odd water stains or warping on your ceilings, walls, or the floors near your plumbing appliances and fixtures? Even though we often tend to disregard the occasional dripping of a sink or the collection of moisture around the base of our tub, such issues can become a definite problem over time.
Malfunctioning fixtures create a major hole in your savings with all the added waste of water throughout the years and can also cause irreversible damage on your furnishings and structural foundation. Let our team at CB Smith Plumbing offer reliable services for our customers to keep your plumbing running smoothly as normal.
There are many reasons why your fixtures, from your kitchen faucet to your toilet flusher, could be experiencing problems. One major cause is simply that your fixtures have succumbed to continual wear-and-tear over the years. However, there are often other culprits for fixtures that are not functioning properly, from equipment that was not built to stand the test of time to installations that were improperly or loosely fitted. Often, a lack of regular maintenance can also cause your fixtures to leak, shift, or even break off.
Regardless of the issue, our knowledgeable technicians are able to carefully examine the problem, detecting the primary cause, or causes, behind your fixture failure. Once we have identified the problem, we can offer rapid but effective solutions so you can get back to having life function normally again.
When to Replace Your Plumbing Fixtures
It might seem that a fixture problem, such as a slightly dripping faucet, is not as big of a deal as a clogged drain. In fact, too often, fixture problems are continually put off as a “rainy day project” – until they completely crack or break off and leave you with a much larger issue on your hands.
To avoid these kinds of predicaments, it is important to be aware of the typical lifespan of different types of fixtures. This way, if you notice your fixture is experiencing some troubles, our dedicated plumbers can provide an excellent replacement before disaster strikes.
Some typical lifespans of common fixtures include:
- Internal toilet tank components – 5 years
- Vent fans – 5-10 years
- Sump pumps – 7 years
- Steel kitchen sink – 5-10 years
- Sewer grinder pump – 8-10 years
- Metal faucets – 15-20 years
- Water softeners – 7-10 years
- Hose bibs – 20 years
- Garbage disposal – 8-10 years
- Instantaneous water heaters – 10-15 years
- Shower doors – 10-20 years
- Showerheads – 50 years (if properly maintained)
Benefits of Installing New Plumbing Fixtures
Upgrading your faucet and plumbing fixtures throughout your South Carolina home can be well worth the investment. Not only will it provide improved water flow and better water pressure, but also it has the potential to save you up to 15% on your water bills each month.
Upgrading these fixtures into modern styles can increase the aesthetic value of any room, as well as add nostalgia or bring contemporary vibes to the house. Investing in fixtures designed with an aerator that can help conserve water while providing optimal comfort levels is a must.
