A Licensed Kansas Plumber Maintains your Plumbing Fixtures
Plumbers 911 Kansas Can Help Keep Your Home Beautiful
Our kitchen and our bathroom are two rooms of the home that can serve as wonderful places of retreat. A good soak in the tub, or cooking and enjoying a hearty dinner around the kitchen table can be highlights of our day. But when plumbing fixtures wear out or break, these simple joys can become unnecessarily frustrating or impossible.
Plumbing fixtures include most everything that connects to your plumbing system, such as toilets, baths and showers, faucets and sinks. These are the parts of the house that we use every day, but probably don’t think much about until something breaks. If you’re having a plumbing emergency with one of your fixtures, call Plumbers 911 Kansas immediately for around-the-clock services, so you can get back to your life quickly.
What are some common repairs that plumbing fixtures require?
There is a wide variety of problems that plumbing fixtures can face, but several problems are very common issues that homeowners face. If you notice a problem with one of your plumbing fixtures, it’s possible that you could be dealing with one of the following:
- Hard water causing buildup: This is often a regional issue, so it may or may not be a problem where you live. Hard water can cause mineral deposits to build up in plumbing fixtures over time.
- Porcelain cracking: Porcelain is beautiful, but in older homes older fixtures can eventually crack simply due to age.
- Clogged drains: Often this can be fixed with a plunger, but if your drain persistently clogs, then there’s a bigger issue at hand that is worth having a professional look at.
- Leaky faucets: Hard water is often the culprit if you have a leaky faucet (see above.) Although mostly a benign issue, a leaky faucet can add lots of money to your water bill over time.
- Leaking or low-flow toilets: As with drain clogs, this can be a sign of a major issue if it’s something that repeats after being fixed with a plunger. If that’s the case in your home, have a professional take a look to make sure there isn’t a problem deeper in your plumbing.
Many of these issues can be resolved with a simple repair, but it’s always a good idea to have a professional assist in diagnosing the problem. Don’t delay, because a seemingly small problem can lead to bigger, more expensive issues when ignored.
What are some updates to my plumbing fixtures that I could make?
Plumbing fixtures, as with everything else in the home that receives regular use, will receive wear and tear over time and eventually require replacing. Although some fixtures, like porcelain bathtubs and sinks, can last for decades, this requires regular maintenance and care that not all fixtures receive. Often, this can be out of your control, such as when purchasing an older home that has had several previous owners. The time may eventually come when it’s time to say out with the old and in with the new, and the best plumbers in Kansas are eager to help you install the fixtures of your dreams.
Even if your fixtures haven’t reached the end of their lifespan, you may simply want to update the look of your décor. Because plumbing fixtures are often the focal points of the rooms that they’re in, simply swapping them out for something more modern looking can make a big impact on the rest of the room.
Plus, water saving technologies and new features in modern fixtures can mean that your shower suddenly becomes even more relaxing, or your kitchen more fun to cook in.
If you’re imagining the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams, contact Plumbers 911 Kansas to talk about installing new fixtures, or even an entirely new bathroom or kitchen, in your home. The possibilities are nearly endless.
Should I hire a professional, or DIY?
DIY is all the rage right now, and step-by-step instructions available all over the internet might make it tempting to do the work yourself and save some money. It’s true that some small fixes might be easy home projects, especially if you’re particularly handy around the house. But often, with large projects, it will save you money in the long run and peace of mind to know that a professional has done the job right the first time, and at a high level of quality that will last for many years to come.
If you’re curious about the potential cost of a project you have in mind, give us a call and have one of our technicians provide you an estimate for the work to be done.
