Make Your Bathroom Fixtures Last Longer with These Tips

Tired of constantly repairing or replacing your bathroom fixtures? If so, you’re likely not incorporating the right materials. As with cheap toilet partitions, some faucet fixtures may boast cheaper prices and flashier styles but may not last long. With these methods helping to guide your next bathroom fixture choices you’ll be able to keep your faucets looking better and lasting longer.

Forged Brass Faucets

One of the longest lasting metal materials used in plumbing, forged brass will keep your pipes from cracking for years to come. Their dense design keeps them from leaking as often as other metal fixtures while also giving off a smooth design. Like with all metal fixtures, please be careful of the amount of lead that can build up in resting water and make sure your material supplier keeps the lead count low.

Nickel Finish

Most modern faucets come in stainless steel or chrome finishes, but nickel offers a unique advantage with its matte surface. It reduces the need for frequent cleaning to remove fingerprints and smudges, resulting in less use of harsh chemicals. In turn, this prolongs the life of the finish by keeping the chemicals from corroding the material over time.

Ceramic Parts

Oftentimes the small, moving parts inside the bathroom features need constant attention or replacement due to wear and tear. Even though steel and plastic can be cheap and efficient, they don’t last long. Ceramic parts are more expensive but are more durable and last longer than their cheap counterparts.

Range of Motion

Homeowners, particularly those with kids, often replace faucets due to leaks caused by worn moving parts. Modern designs can make it difficult to gauge the faucet's full range of motion. Adding a detail indicating the range of motion can prevent strain and prolong faucet lifespan.

With these tips in mind any aspiring self-plumber or bathroom designer will be able to keep their faucets and fixtures running longer with less time repairing or replacing worn-down parts.
