The kitchen is often the central part of the home. From the sink’s faucet to the drain and the dishwasher, there are several complex components. When any of these stop working correctly, you need to address it immediately to prevent bigger kitchen plumbing problems.
Here are 6 of the most common issues you may run into.
1- Clogged and Slow Drains
Limiting the quantity of food fragments and solid materials that enter your sink is the greatest method to keep things operating smoothly. This can be achieved by employing a drain basket or food catch and routinely emptying it.
2- Dishwasher Issues
There are 3 potential offenders to look into.Checking your filter should be your first step if your dishwasher won’t drain. Check your drain hose if the dishwasher drain is still not functioning properly. The drain pump is your last stop.
3- Leaky Faucets
A worn-out washer is a common reason for a leaking faucet. The link between the spout and the faucet in the compression unit, the valve seat, may also be rusted. If the base of the faucet is dripping, the O-ring seal is probably worn out.
4- Low Water Pressure
A blocked aerator is more likely to blame here. Calcium and other minerals are dissolved in water and can accumulate in the aerator. Simply remove the aerator, clean any debris with vinegar, then reinstall it.
5- Leaking Pipes Under the Sink
A leaking pipe under the sink may occasionally be discovered rather early, requiring only a little repair. In other instances, the leak may have persisted long enough to cause structural harm and mold development.
