Hard Water Affects Your Fixtures- Here's How!
Approximately ninety percent of the people in the U.S. deal with hard water. Hard water can cause faucets and drains to become sluggish because they develop a lime buildup. This limescale can also find its way to the shower doors and stalls. Hard water can also stain the sinks and damage the washers within the fixtures. In all, hard water can simply ruin your fixtures to the point that they will no longer be usable.
Once hard water stains have set in, cleaning products will no longer do the trick. Contact us to get expert Davie fixture replacement services, and get rid of those hard water stained items once and for all.

More Commonly Asked Questions About Sink & Faucet Repair:
Can a Dripping Faucet Be Repaired?
The short answer is yes, it can. While many think that faucet repairs can be a DIY project, it is always safer to let a trusted professional handle it. Hiring a professional to repair your leaky faucet can also save you money in the long run, as poorly done repairs or replacements can cause more damage that will eventually need to be repaired.
What Causes Faucets to Leak?
Faucets may leak for a number of reasons. Here are some of the more common reasons you may require leaky faucet repair:
- A corroded valve seat
- Problems with the O ring
- A worn-out washer
- The washer wasn't installed correctly in the first place
Why Is My Porcelain Sink Cracked?
One of the most common reasons for cracks in porcelain sinks is a rapid or extreme change in temperature. Something like pouring a pot of boiling water into a cold sink, for example, can create a temperature strain and cause a crack to form in the surface of the porcelain. Sink repairs might also be needed if a heavy item strikes or falls on the sink. Cracks can also form slowly, over time.
How Can Professionals Fix My Cracked Ceramic Sink?
Depending on the severity of the crack, a trained plumber should easily be able to fix your cracked sink with an epoxy adhesive. Your plumber will simply apply the epoxy and smooth it over the crack to fill it in. Once the epoxy is dry, your plumber can paint over the crack and seal it, so that no water can get into the crack. If the crack is severe, your plumber may suggest replacing your sink.
