Choosing the Right Faucet
Choosing a faucet for your kitchen or bathroom during a remodel might seem straightforward. Just pick a good-looking one that jumps out at you, right? However, there is actually a whole list of factors to consider when selecting a faucet.
The faucet you choose should not only look nice but meet your practical needs. How quickly could the faucet fill the sink? How far does the hose reach? Can it swivel?
You must consider the combination of features that works best for your space, such as:
- Mount options
- Spout height
- Number and type of handles
- Hands-free or touch capabilities
Hard Water Effects on Your Faucets
Hard water, or water that has a high mineral content, such as magnesium and calcium, presents a variety of problems to the homeowner. While hard water won’t make you sick, it makes washing more difficult because soap doesn’t fully dissolve, which leaves residue on your bathtub, shower curtain, hair and skin.
Besides washing, hard water damages plumbing and faucets in several ways. The calcium in the water causes scale to build up in your pipes and faucets. Scale buildup in pipes causes blockages to form and slows water flow. Also, scale buildup on faucets looks unsightly and causes them to malfunction. Call us if you see the effects of hard water in your home.
Leaky Faucet Repair & Maintenance
Keeping your faucets in good shape helps keep your water free-flowing and your faucets looking great. To maintain your faucet finishes it’s important that you choose a durable faucet to begin with. Many experts recommend brass if you can afford it.
Also, avoid using harsh cleaning products that might damage the finish. You can keep your faucets in tip top shape by drying them as soon as you’re done using them. Lastly, if you notice mineral buildup, it’s essential that you tackle it before it gets hot of hand. You can try using an over the counter product for that or by calling a professional plumber for help if your faucets need repair.
Considering installing a water softener to keep your plumbing fixtures and faucets lasting longer? Plumb Perfect Plumbing can help you choose the right system to fit your home’s needs!
