How can hard water affect your fixtures?
Hard water is caused by the buildup of naturally occurring minerals, such as magnesium and calcium, in your water. When dissolved in water, these chemicals tend to stick to the interior of pipes and other fixtures. Consequently, the inner diameter of water supply lines and fixtures shrink, and excessive pressure is generated.
This can lead to an irregular flow of water in faucets, shower heads, and other similar units. In addition to fixture repair and replacement services the specialists at Eagle Plumbing & Heating can install a water softener in your home, helping you to avoid a potentially destructive situation.
When is it necessary to replace your faucet?
The inner linings of faucet components can become damaged by corrosion and other chemical reactions that occur as a result of hard water. Sometimes, faucet handles might become very tight, due to a buildup of scale. You may also experience an irregular flow of water and will need to have your faucet replaced quickly.
Extensive wear and tear of metallic components inside faucets also warrants professional replacement services. Loose valves and other control components within your faucets could lead to leaks that will necessitate the need for a complete unit replacement. Iron components within faucets may also generate corrosion that stains incoming water. The professionals at Eagle Plumbing & Heating can determine the route of your problem and provide fast and effective solutions.
When is it necessary to replace your sink?
A bathroom sink needs replacement when there are visible cracks, crevices, and other markings. Water can easily leak through the tiniest openings in ceramic or fiberglass sinks. Sink replacement is therefore needed to prevent any leaks that could further damage wooden vanities, floors, and even interior walls.
Sometimes, a flange might be so badly damage that a complete sink replacement is necessary to ensure that you water is draining properly. If you notice any of these issues, contact the experts at Eagle Plumbing & Heating as soon as possible.
What are simple tips to avoid leaks in the future?
One way to prevent faucet leaks is to make sure that all of the necessary hardware is properly connected to the water supply lines and sink. Our licensed plumbers can inspect your system and make the appropriate adjustments. Washers, couplers, gaskets, and screws can sometimes become loose, allowing water to leak out.
Components like locknuts and aerators also play important roles in regulating the rate at which water flows out of your faucets. Homeowners should also make sure that both faucet handles close properly in order to prevent any drips from the spout.
