When your bathroom faucet has been in use for about 10 years or more, the following signs may be that it's time to replace it.
It's very troublesome for the single hole faucet to leak. We don't just have that annoying dripping sound, but the wasted water will make you spend money. Should you fix the faucet or replace it? This problem is very confusing for people who don't know much about it. Let me tell you first, unless you have an expensive, high-end faucet, you can choose to replace it, which is more cost-effective than repairing an old faucet. Because once the expensive faucet is repaired, it is easy to become cheaper. At the same time, its maintenance price is also very expensive. Therefore, if your high-quality faucet goes wrong, the best way is to replace it.
You may not know this: inefficient faucets are a waste of water and money. Low efficiency faucet refers to the faucet whose water consumption exceeds the water demand for normal use. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the old bathroom faucet releases 2.2 gallons of water per minute. On today's market, there is a tap that uses only 1.5 gallons per minute. These water-saving faucets carry water-saving labels, which means that they meet the EPA's water-saving standards. The EPA also reports that these water-saving faucets save about 700 gallons of water a year for the average household.
If your bathroom faucet shows these signs of extreme wear, it's time to replace it:
1.It is difficult or impossible to replace the aerator because the aerator threads have deteriorated.
2.You've forgotten what it looked like a few years ago. Now it's worn out.
3.The handle is broken, there is no way to turn on and off the tap normally, or it is very difficult to turn on and off.
4.Every time you turn on the tap, you hear a huge scream.
5.After the faucet is rusty, the water flowing out has some rusty smell, and because it is rusty, it is difficult to turn it on or off.
6.You try to repair the faucet, but the inside is very worn, and the new inside parts can't solve the problem.
7. There will be a strange chirping sound when the tap is turned on, which indicates that there may be looseness inside.
8. Your faucet doesn't match your newly updated bathroom style, and it's very old.
Maybe your faucet is decades old, which makes the bathroom look obsolete. If you are a person who likes new things, then you should not let your bathroom become what it is. Or you update the rest of your bathroom without replacing the old faucet, which will make the old faucet look unsuitable for the occasion. You know, the bathroom is a very relaxing place, and the faucet is something you see every day, so you should decorate it more beautiful and more suitable for you. I hope you can choose a suitable faucet for you, so that when you come home from work, you can wash your body tired.
