The Darville Company has what you need when it comes to plumbing. In addition to making your kitchen or bathroom more functional, we can make it look better too! Our licensed plumbers can assist in installing all-new fixtures that will make your space shine like new. In this post, we’ll explore some of the reasons you should consider an upgrade to your plumbing fixtures, and how they can make a huge difference for your home.


Did you know that leaks around your home can add up to nearly 10,000 gallons a year in wasted water!? Leaky faucets are just a part of this, and all those drips add up! In many cases, a drip is caused by none other than a worn-out faucet or fixture. Over time, the washers and gaskets will wear down and simply can’t be repaired. So replace them! 

A showerhead, for example, may stop dripping with a simple tightening. But rust or other signs of wear mean you’re better off replacing it.


A little rusty, or in some cases, a lot rusty. Even in West Texas, bathrooms can get humid after a long steamy shower. All that moisture can cause mold on the walls, or rust on your metal fixtures. Making use of bathroom fans, or thoroughly drying or cleaning after every bath or shower, will help but at some point rust is inevitable. The good news is that it’s very visual, so you can tell when it’s time to make a change. Getting rid of that rust will help make your home feel a lot cleaner!


We already discussed tightening fixtures to stop leaks, but what if the fixtures themselves just won’t tighten? Due to rust, or even just wear, they can be stripped and impossible to tighten. Something like duct tape may do the job temporarily, but it’s not exactly the long-term look that most homeowners are going for. Get the upgrade!


Maybe you don’t have any specific issues with your faucets or fixtures. Maybe you just want a nicer bathroom! Or maybe you’re preparing to sell your home and want to give the bathroom a facelift to get the most bang for your buck. Whatever the reason, The Darville Company can help. For everything from fixtures, to a tankless water heater, to a complete plumbing remodel – make an appointment today by calling 432-580-9675. The Darville Company is the Higher Standard.
