If you’ve got overflowing toilets in your home, or you’re plagued by dripping faucets or a shower leaking on the floor, you may need new bathroom plumbing fixtures in Oklahoma City, OK — especially if they’re old or outdated. Replacing them now can help you save money and conserve water in your household.
Bathroom plumbing fixtures aren’t created equal. High-quality fixtures may cost a little more than lower-end models — but poorly made fixtures made with inexpensive materials will likely cost you more in the long run.
When it’s time to replace old bathroom fixtures, opting for high-quality materials and expert installation will reduce the likelihood of leaks, rust, and deterioration. It’ll also improve your home’s water efficiency — without sacrificing good water pressure.

Overflowing Toilets and Other Signs of Failing Fixtures
Every toilet overflows at some point. But if your toilet is constantly running over — and you don’t have a sewer line blockage or blocked vent pipe — replacing it will likely solve the issue.
While frequently overflowing toilets or toilets that continuously run are good candidates for replacement, a licensed plumber can help you decide whether repairing the fixture or replacing it is best for you.
When it comes to sinks, bathtubs, and shower faucets, the most obvious sign of failure is water loss.
Dripping faucets waste a surprising amount of water. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a faucet that drips twice per minute sends a gallon of water down the drain every five days — nearly 70 gallons in a year. Additionally, a shower leaking from the faucet promotes the growth of mold and mildew in the tub or shower pan.
In addition to persistent leaks, here are some other signs your bathroom plumbing fixtures may need replacing or repair:
Corrosion or rust on the exterior of the fixture
Handles that are difficult to operate
Heavy mineral buildup accumulated inside the faucet
Water pooling around the base of the faucet
Cracks in a porcelain sink, tub, or toilet
Inadequate water pressure
Keep in mind that your bathroom plumbing fixtures don’t need to be failing in order to replace them — a simple fixture replacement can change the whole look and vibe of your bathroom.
If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom or update your fixtures, it’s easy to swap them out. Choose modern, water-saving models for long-term savings — and donate the old fixtures to your favorite local salvage place.
