Are you not allowed to just use avoir besoin de or maybe on doit in the same context?
This question relates to:French lesson "Il faut : expressing necessity and obligation"

On doit is similar to il faut. But the latter is a bit more versatile and sounds more elegant. However, in many contexts you can use either. I do find the lesson quite exhaustive on this subject.
