How can hard water affect the quality of your faucet?
Hard water is caused by a high concentration of minerals such as calcium and magnesium in your water. If these deposits are not controlled, hard water will begin to leave a white buildup around your fixtures making even a fairly new faucet look unsightly and outdated. In addition to atheistic concerns, this concentration of minerals in your water will leave buildup or scaling on the inside of the pipes in your home.
Over time scaling on the interior of the pipes grows layer upon layer leading to a drastic decrease in water pressure or it may stop the flow altogether. Your faucets will begin to suffer, as the buildup of minerals can lead to a clog and may cause the handles to stick, making it increasingly difficult to turn your water on and off. In addition to our reliable faucet services, the certified plumbing technicians at DrainHelp.com can also install an effective water softening system in your property to rid your water of these destructive minerals.
When should you repair or replace your fixtures?
Problems with your faucet and sink are easily identified. It seems that no matter what you to do to your faucet it never stops dripping. Many times this could be caused by a washer or gasket that has worn out and will simply need to be replaced to ensure that your faucet continues to function properly. A leaky faucet can also be as a result of worn out components inside the housing, in this case installing a whole new fixture would be the best solution. If your handles become increasingly difficult to turn, due to a buildup of scale, replacing the faucet is oftentimes the most viable resolution. Hard water can be damaging to your sink as well, as it can corrode the basin and potentially cause a leak.
What are some easy tips to avoid leaks in the future?
Having up-to-date parts in your faucet and fixtures will help to prevent leaks. It is important to have the washer and gaskets in your faucet inspected regularly to ensure they are functioning properly. You should also have your faucet’s aerator looked at. These are found at the tip of the spout and are used to mix air and water together in order to provide a smooth flow. Fragments and minerals can build up in the aerator leading to damage and subsequent leaks. This can be easily unscrewed and flushed of any debris. You should also check underneath your sink from time to time to search for any potential leaks in your pipes. Proper water softener maintenance, which includes regular salt tank cleanings, will help to prevent your faucet from corroding. It is recommended that your salt tank be cleaned at least twice a year.
