Many homeowners consider changing out a bathroom faucet to be a simple do-it-yourself project. While this seems like a smart and cost saving project, you might be setting yourself up for a disaster down the road. Installing new plumbing fixtures isn’t just about turning a wrench, it requires an understanding of basic plumbing, especially if something goes wrong. Will you know what to do?

What Could Go Wrong?

Just selecting the right fixture could be an issue. A professional plumber understands the type, technology, style, and size requirements a new fixture could require for your project. In addition to choosing an incompatible or incorrect fixture for your plumbing project, consider there other common problems you might be faced with:

  • Reduced water pressure
  • Increased water usage
  • Improper fit
  • Leaking
  • Squealing noises during use

If you install your own fixtures and come upon these common issues, will you have the know how and resources to fix them yourself? If you have to call in a plumber to fix an issue, you may wind up having to pay more than if you had them start the project and complete it correctly the first time.

When Do I Need a New Fixture?

You may just have an out of date fixture that you want to look new and modern, and that’s a wonderful time to go fixture shopping. You may also have a broken or damaged fixture and correcting it is a necessity. You might need a new fixture immediately if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Dripping or leaking
  • Clanking or squealing during use
  • Poor water pressure
  • Corrosion or pin holes
  • Chipping or cracking finish
  • Rust or other damage
