Do I Need a New Tub?
Most homeowners are unable to determine if their current bathtub has seen its last days and needs to be replaced. If there are visible leaks or damage, the decision is easy, but sometimes the problems occur under the surface where you can’t see. If there is water leaking under the tub, or if the seal has begun to wear down, you may end up with mold growth, rotted wood and other damage that requires extensive repair.
If you’ve had your tub for more than 15 to 20 years, have a plumber inspect it to make sure all is well and there isn’t any damage occurring behind the scenes. Sometimes, a bathtub will be replaced before it needs to be, as part of a bathroom renovation for aesthetic purposes. During renovations, it’s important to use a qualified technician to replace your tub, just to ensure all of the connections and seals are correctly in place and you’ll enjoy a couple decades’ worth of use.
Risks of Faulty Shower Valves
Sometimes, the bathtub itself is functioning, but the shower valves need to be repaired or replaced. If the shower valves are damaged and left without being repaired, you’ll encounter leaks that end up causing property damage and encouraging mold growth. As with your tub, have the shower valves inspected periodically to ensure they are not damaged and remain in good working order. Having all the elements of your bathtub and shower checked out professionally by an Orange County plumbing expert will give you a good indication when replacement makes sense and is the best course of action.
