Your faucet is leaking and repairs would cost more than replacing.

Most new faucets on the market are less than $100, so it stands to reason that if repairing your leaking or dripping faucet would cost more than that, you may as well replace it. In most cases, you are able to replace the faucet pieces to make it work well again. O-rings, gaskets, washers, and valve seats are the typical culprits of leaking faucets, all of which are relatively inexpensive. However, flex hoses, thread pipes, sprayers, aerators, flow restrictors, and handles are more expensive. If the dome, escutcheon, or spout are broken or cracked, you almost have to replace the faucet.

You want to upgrade.

Sink and tub faucets have evolved over the last few decades and now offer much more than simple functionality. Beautiful faucets allow you to express your personality and add luxurious touches to your kitchen or bath decor. Waterfall and bamboo faucets provide a unique look and feel, rainfall shower faucets help to disperse water, and pulldown faucets add ultimate functionality to your kitchen. If you are looking for a small change that will make a big difference, check out all of your faucet options and consider replacing your current faucets.

You want to save water.

One of the easiest ways to save water is to replace old fixtures and appliances, including faucets. A new WaterSense bathroom sink faucet can reduce your sink’s water flow, without sacrificing water pressure, by more than 30 percent. Built-in aerators provide high-performing, water-efficiency. Even the most diligent families who turn off the water while brushing their teeth, limit shower times, and only run full loads in the washing machine or dishwasher, can only limit water waste so much when their fixtures are working against them. Replace your faucets as a water-saving start.
