Signs it might be time to upgrade your bathroom fixtures: temperature fluctuations, leaks, high water bills, and outdated design.

Signs It’s Time To Upgrade

It’s not always glaringly obvious when it’s time to overhaul your bathroom. Here are some things to keep an eye out for that could indicate it’s time for an upgrade.

Temperature & Pressure Fluctuations

If you’re experiencing constant fluctuations in water temperature or pressure everytime you go to shower, this is a telltale sign it’s time to upgrade your fixtures. These fluctuations can be caused by a number of issues including a broken cartridge, a leak or calcium build-up in and around the fixture.


An old leaky faucet or a cracked fixture is annoying, but it can also be a huge water waster. Cracked and damaged fixtures should be repaired or replaced right away to mitigate serious water damage.

High Water Bills

Older toilets, faucets and showerheads weren’t exactly water efficient. If your toilet is using 1.6 gallons of water every time you flush, and you’re flushing multiple times a day, your water bill starts to climb pretty fast.

Outdated Design

It’s not always performance that’s an issue, it can also be looks. If your fixtures are worn and tired in both style and finish, it could be time to look into more sleek and modern options.

Budget and Efficiency are are things to consider when doing a new bathroom renovation.
