Can You Fix My Kitchen Sink?
We receive a number of calls about clogged sinks, broken sink plumbing, and kitchen sinks that having leaking pipes. Kitchen sinks get a lot of use and sometimes abuse. If you try to flush large chunks of food, grease, or dirt from indoor plants, there’s an excellent chance that your sink can get clogged. Sometimes the sink under-counter plumbing breaks or leaks. This can be caused by the building settling, impact from objects as they are stored under the sink, accidentally pulling on the plumbing pipes, or a broken pipe fitting seal. If you are having difficulties with your kitchen sink, call Henco Plumbing Services at (360)773-8039 for rapid service.
Here is information about the most common kitchen sink plumbing issues.
The Most Common Kitchen Sink Plumbing Problems
“Everything but the kitchen sink.” This is a phrase meaning “anything and everything.” Of course, as professional plumbers, we feel that the phrase should be, “The kitchen sink and everything else.” That’s because kitchen sinks are a major part of a plumber’s services.
When you saw the title of this post, the first thing that popped to mind was probably a clogged up sink with a few inches of murky standing want in it. No drain in your house is more likely to develop clogs that will cause it to drain slowly or stop completely than the one in your kitchen. Food waste and fats, oils, and grease (FOG) that go down the drain will create gradual build-up—and it’s rarely something you can use a sink plunger to get rid of. We recommend you call us for professional drain cleaning services that will not only clear out the clog, they will keep clogs from returning for a long time.
Low Water Pressure
If the stream of water coming out of your kitchen faucet seems weaker than usual, check other faucets around the house first. If all of them have the same low water pressure, the likely cause isn’t in your home’s plumbing but the municipal water system. (Although it might be a leak in your home’s water main.) If only the kitchen sink has this problem, the aerator of the faucet is probably clogged with mineral build-up. You can unscrew the aerator and clean it out, but if this trouble happens frequently we suggest you look into a water softener for the house—you may have a hard water problem.
This may not sound like an emergency situation (unless you sleep near the kitchen and the drip drip drip is keeping you up at night), but it’s a big waste of water!
Not repairing a kitchen sink problem can eventually lead to major plumbing problems. Big problems may occur right away or may take years, but either way, why take the chance that the issue will go away? Broken plumbing does not fix itself, so avoid big problems by fixing small problems early. Here’s information about repairing and replacing broken kitchen sinks.
Kitchen Sink Repair and Replacement
The homeowners use sinks every day on a regular basis, whether they are situated in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry room. No wonder that because of this persistent use the homeowners often face plumbing problems such as leaking taps or loose plumbing connections. Also if you had your sink incorrectly installed, it can start shifting after constant use, especially while washing massive pots and pans. A cracked, stained or leaking sink or a clogged drain under it is a common plumbing problem that might need a professional attention.
If you decide to leave a cracked sink unrepaired, remember that cracks can multiply and lead to leaking, which intensifies mold growth. In case if you venture a DIY project on your sink repair or replacement, be aware that this task requires knowledge of construction, building codes and specific tools.
