Should I Replace the Kitchen Sink During a Remodel?
A kitchen remodel is one of the best single-room remodeling jobs you can have done for a home. Revamping a kitchen to modernize it, change the layout, update the plumbing, and re-do the cabinets and countertops is a great way to enhance a room that’s central to your life, and often central to everyone in your household. A revitalized kitchen will revitalized a home.
There are many tasks you can have taken care of during a kitchen remodel, and you’ll need to decide where you want to prioritize. You may be interested in putting in new appliances and eliminating old ones, such as taking out a trash compactor to fit in a larger refrigerator. Or maybe you are focused on replacing aging plumbing. But one improvement to which you should give serious consideration, no matter what your general plans are, is replacing the sink.
You may be in a situation where the garbage disposal under your kitchen sink is not working properly. This can impact your water drainage, causing a clogged drain. This may result in standing water in your sink as a result of slow drainage. The following material from The Kitchen Blog discusses this problem and offers solutions.
The Facts About Fat, Oil And Grease Disposal In Your Kitchen
Many people do not know the far reaching impact of the incorrect disposal of certain kitchen waste. Disposing of large amounts of fat oil or grease, also commonly known as FOG straight down a drain can cause many issues, starting in your kitchen. This article will help you understand the problems which can occur and how they can be prevented.
You can cause yourself a lot of trouble in your home by pouring fat oil or grease products straight down your sink. These sorts of products do not mix with water and other liquids as their components are insoluble. As they cool they will solidify. They will then start to stick to the sides of pipes, slowly building up over time. Other solid items can also get caught up in the FOG like coffee granules or small food particles.
Remember, dumping grease oil, and other noxious liquids, or semi liquids, down your kitchen sink drain can result in serious damage to your garbage disposal and create a major drain clog and this can require a major kitchen sink repair.

The kitchen garbage disposal is actually a bit more complex than it may seem.
