Faucet Repair & Replacement
What’s the hype with replacing my faucet?
There is a growing interest of homeowners being responsible with the amount of water they use in their home. It becomes even more of an interest when there are water shortages.
Most people do not know the purpose or how a faucet works. At the main shut-off valve in your home, there is an aerator. The aerator limits the water flow through the home. It regulates a constant pressure of water moving through the pipes.
The water heater is designed to heat the water in it to the same temperature. It’s constant as well.
A faucet is designed to reduce the amount of water that comes out of your sink as well as allow you to control the water temperature.
Think of it this way, if you didn’t have a faucet, you would have an enormous amount of water with a very high temperature coming out of your sink!
Replacing your faucet with a new one will help you regulate the amount of water you use in your home. Plus there are a variety of styles and functions a faucet can provide, making your life a bit easier when washing or rinsing.
