When to Repair & When to Replace a Faucet

When it comes to repairing or replacing a faucet, it can be difficult to know which option is the best for your Port St. John home. At Drain Wizards, we understand the importance of a properly functioning faucet, and we're here to help you make an informed decision.

In general, minor leaks and dripping faucets can often be repaired with simple fixes such as replacing a washer or O-ring. However, here are a few factors to consider to decide if a repair will cut it:

  • How old is your faucet? Faucets typically last 15-20 years. If you're nearing the end of that span, you may want to upgrade.
  • Does your faucet frequently need repairs? If repairs are starting to stack up, you may end up spending more than if you just replaced the entire unit.
  • Do you have high water costs? A new faucet may be more efficient, around 2.5 gallons per minute instead of 3-5.

A new faucet can not only improve the functionality of your plumbing but also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home.
