For most homeowners, kitchen plumbing issues are generally basic. Since the kitchen is the most widely used areas of the house, any plumbing issue, if left unchecked, may lead to major disasters and heavy expenses for homeowners. Some issues may be very small, but some do require a help of the professional plumber.
Leaky Kitchen Faucet
This reasons water waste and an irritating dribbling sound throughout the day and night. The issue may be because of a deterred aerator which is a little screen on the end of your spigot you find that there is an indication of fine particles on it when unscrewing the aerator, then most likely the water leakage is because of this hindrance. You may try to let the water flow without the aerator for a while and then fix everything again and check for leaks again. If it continues, then the issue could be with the washer or the O-ring seal.
Obstructed or Leaking Kitchen Sink
Another common issue faced in the kitchen plumbing is of clogged or leaking kitchen sink. Stuff like oil and cleanser more often than not gags the p trap beneath the kitchen sink which is put to keep the sewer gas far from home. It should be unscrewed from the sink and cleaned before placing it back. The leaks may be due to some breakage in the drainpipes. Prefer calling the plumber for this if you do not want to experiment doing the same yourself
Low Water Pressure at the Kitchen Sink
You may experience the low water pressure coming out from your kitchen faucet. This again may be due to the clogged aerator. You have to get it clean to fix the issue.
Not Enough or No Hot Water
If the heater is too small you may not get enough hot water supply or there may be chances with the clogged pipes that makes the water inflow and outflow the heater. Or probably the fitting is old enough and is worn out. You need to get this fixed to resolve the issue and to get the continuous flow of hot water. If the fittings are of plastic then you may have to replace it too.
Yet another common issue in the kitchen faced by the homeowners is the clogged drains. This is due to continuous disposal of garbage, grease, soap and other garbage that continuously flows down. There are multiple ways you can try to fix it like the plunger, vinegar and baking soda etc.. solution in it, but if nothing works best then need to get the help of the expert.
These may seem common issues we may face every now and then but if left unnoticed then they may lead to bigger disaster which may even lead to the complete changeover of the fittings and cost extra expense on the pockets.
