Age: Around the 10-20 year mark many plumbing fixtures begin to develop leaks, noises, and low water pressure.

This will ensure that you are saving money since you are eliminated the chance of consistent repairs.


Look: typically toilets/sinks from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s are known to be colored in yellow, blue, pink etc.and for many they enjoy the color and vintage feel. On the other hand, many prefer to modernize their home with fixtures in the shades of white or beige especially if they are renting or selling their home. Inefficiency: toilets that were installed decades ago typically used around 7 gallons per flush. Modern toilets have now been designed to flush with an average of 1.30 gallons per flush. Ultimately you over 10,000 gallons per year. As you can see plumbing fixtures do need a change from time to time. Keep an eye for the year of installation and take care of its plumbing needs.
