4 Signs You Need a New Bathroom Sink Installation
The bathroom sink is the focal point of your bathroom. It’s not only there to perform a function, but it also sets the tone for the entire room. While bathroom sinks are designed to last for many years, they don’t last forever, and eventually, you’ll want to replace your sink because it’s not functioning properly or you want a change of style. Here are the top 4 signs that it’s time to replace your bathroom sink.
- Physical Damage
It’s not uncommon for a bathroom sink to develop hairline cracks as they age; however, once these cracks become noticeable, water can seep into the porcelain and erode the material, which like rust, is nearly impossible to stop once it’s started.
- Rusted Tap
Rust is metal’s worst enemy because it quickly eats through the metal in your sink and can make your water supply contaminated. Imagine how bad it is to drink or brush your teeth with rusty water. Rust also affects your pipes, which can lead to water leaks and bursts that are expensive to repair. If you have rusty taps and pipes, make sure you call a plumber to address the issue before installing a new sink, otherwise, you’ll continue to have the same issues.
- Decreased Water Flow
If the water flow is a fraction of what it once was, it could be that your faucet is the problem, or it might be an issue with eroded pipes that are leaking behind the walls. When water leaks out of sight, you often don’t realize it until there’s significant damage to deal with, so if you experienced a reduction in your faucet’s water flow, call a professional plumber to diagnose the problem.
- Continuous Clogs
It’s common for your sink to clog from time to time as hair and other debris get lodged in the drain. However, if you continue to struggle with clogs even after you’ve treated the issue, it could mean that the problem is worse than you think. Sometimes, the best way to deal with these constant clogging situations is to call a plumber to assess the problem and recommend a solution.
When it’s time to replace your aging sink with a functional, modern one that adds style to your bathroom, call the experts at Platinum Plumbing.
When to Replace Your Bathtub
Many Bloomington Normal residents plan on replacing their bathtubs when their current one gets old; however, there are signs to watch for that indicate that you should replace your old tub now rather than waiting. Call us and ask about our bathtub replacement if you notice:
The most obvious sign that it’s time to replace your current tub is if you see water leaking, which means it’s time to replace it sooner rather than later. Ignoring water leaks could mean costly water damage to your bathroom floor.
Although minor cracks are common in an aging tub, as they become more pronounced, they are not only unappealing to look at, they can create dangerous bathing experiences should you cut yourself.
Bathtub stains look unsightly, and you can get rid of most with a cleaning product and some elbow grease, the more challenging it becomes to get rid of stains, the more you’ll appreciate a new tub that’s easier to keep clean.
- Mold & Mildew
As if stains weren’t bad enough, imagine a guest coming to your house and seeing a bathtub riddled with mold and mildew. In addition to being an embarrassing eyesore, mold and mildew buildup can be a health concern.
- Tub is Uncomfortable to Use
Many people don’t just bathe to get clean, they also use the tub as a relaxing oasis. So, if your tub is cramped or otherwise uncomfortable, you won’t get all the relaxation benefits you would get if you had a tub that accommodated your better.
If you’re sick of that old bathtub, and want something that’s more comfortable to use and will add beauty to your bathroom, call Platinum Plumbing and ask about our expert bathtub replacement.
