The bathroom is one of the most frequently used places in a home. You may be wondering, how long will your bathroom fixtures last before needing to be repaired or replaced? Our team at Korrect Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. shares the average life expectancy for main bathroom fixtures and when it may be time for an upgrade.
When to Replace Your…
Sinks are one of the most durable parts of your bathroom. Your sink basin itself may last up to 50 years, whereas your faucet will likely need to be replaced every 15-20. However, your bathroom sink is also one of the most common places where clogs and other plumbing issues occur. While you may not need a full replacement, you may need regular maintenance.
Toilets can last just as long as sinks– assuming they are properly installed and used.
Your toilet’s life expectancy may decrease if:
- You do not clean your toilet often
- You damage the inside or outside of the toilet
- You have hard water (mineral deposits building up in the toilet and pipes)
It is recommended that you replace your showerhead about twice a year. This is because showerheads are a common location for bacteria and mold growth. However, your showerhead will likely function for a longer period of time as long as the water pressure remains strong. Still, that doesn’t mean you should go without a replacement for over a year.
