The key to a fully functioning plumbing system is quality plumbing fixtures. These fixtures, such as pipes, faucets, toilets, and more are responsible for delivering clean water without clogs or other issues, but over time, these fixtures will break down and need repairs or replacements. Older plumbing fixtures aren’t always necessarily a bad thing, but here are some signs that your fixtures have become too old to function properly.
- Visible rust. Moisture will break down your pipes over time. Visible signs of rust and other tarnishing are one of the clearest signs of old plumbing fixtures. If you see rust around your fixtures, especially in bathrooms and other areas of the home that experience a lot of humidity, make sure to hire professional plumbing services to take a look at them.
- Dirty water. The water in your plumbing system should never be anything other than clear and clean, but sometimes there are problems with your plumbing fixtures that can contaminate your water. Dirty and discolored water can point to several different possible plumbing issues, including plumbing fixtures that have passed their prime.
- Mold or mildew presence. Mold and mildew growth can lead to a lot of diseases and health hazards and should never be ignored. Plumbing fixtures harboring mold and mildew will need to be replaced as soon as possible in order to keep you and your family safe.
