Common Issues With Kitchen Sinks

clogged sink

You rely on your kitchen sink a lot every day—from the preparation to the cleanup of your meals. That is why it can be frustrating and even risky when something goes wrong with your sink. When this happens, don’t hesitate to contact a plumber in Lake Elsinore, CA, from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter. Find out the common problems with kitchen sinks below:

Blocked Drains

Kitchen sinks are susceptible to clogging, and it’s easy to see why. Several things can find their way down the drain, from grease to food scraps. Even if you have a garbage disposal, you should be careful of what you put down the drain. A simple way to prevent clogs is to use a drain screen. If the sink gets clogged, avoid using chemical drain cleaners and call a plumbing company to deal with the issue.

Leaks Underneath the Sink

Leaks under the sink usually originate from the drain or water supply line. The drain leaks easily at pipe connections, while the water line often leaks at the area where it fastens to the wall. Worn-out seals and gaskets usually cause leaks to occur. Enlist plumbing repairs once you notice mold growth or damp spots on your floor.

Leaky Faucet

Leaky faucets can waste gallons of water, even if it’s just a minor drip. If the faucet handle is closed all the way and still drips, it’s best to hire plumbing services to get to the root of the problem. We may check if there are water pressure issues, loose faucet coverings, and other factors that may cause leaks. In most cases, we can easily fix the problem. If the faucet is on its last legs, however, we recommend a replacement.

Issues with your kitchen sink can be a major inconvenience, but by understanding the culprits behind them, you can take proactive steps to prevent them from becoming an emergency plumbing situation. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
