Signs Your Faucets Need to Be Replaced
There are a few common indicators you can look out for to know if your faucets need to be replaced, such as:
- Constant dripping
If your faucet is constantly dripping or leaking, even when the handle is turned all the way off, it could mean you need to get a replacement. It’s possible that adjusting the water pressure or tightening the valves in your faucet could solve this problem. But if those repairs don’t work, it’s likely that your faucet valves are broken and you need a replacement system.
- Leaking around the faucet Your faucet can leak from the spigot itself, but it can also leak from the handles and the base. A leaking faucet can lead to mold and water damage if left untreated, so it’s important to get it taken care of fast. It may be that the connection to your water supply is loose and tightening it will solve the problem. But often, it’s necessary to replace the entire faucet with a new one.
- Built-up rust or mineral deposits Rust and mineral deposits can wear away at your metal faucet and damage its inner workings through corrosion. When this happens, it’s likely that your faucet will start to leak. You should always try to keep your faucets clean to help them last longer. But if your faucets already have a buildup of rust or mineral deposits, you should get them replaced to keep your water safe and clean.
- Broken handles If your faucet’s handles are squeaking, spinning in place, over-extending, or otherwise seem old and worn down, it’s time to get a new faucet. This means that interior parts of your faucet are worn out and your faucet may soon become unusable.
- Sputtering water or low water pressure If the water coming out of your faucet is low pressure, or if it comes out in fits and spurts and not a steady stream, it’s a sign that there’s something broken that needs to be replaced. It’s possible there is damage inside your faucet such as corrosion, mineral buildup, or cracks that are interrupting the water flow.
