You rely on your kitchen plumbing to supply fresh water and drain wastewater. The plumbing system can get in the way of your home’s other systems. These are five common problems that can occur in your kitchen’s plumbing system.
- Grease Clog
Grease clogs are most common in the kitchen. Even if you don’t regularly put grease in the trash, it is possible for someone else to accidentally clog your drain by adding oil one day. Even grease bits that stick to dirty dishes can end up in the drain.
Don’t be embarrassed to call the plumber if you suspect that your sink has become clogged. Clogs like this are quite common. It’s better not to wait to call the plumber after trying to divert it with hazardous chemicals. Plumbers can remove clogs that frustrate homeowners with video inspections and specialized tools.
- Faucet Drips
Although a faucet drip might not seem like an issue at first glance, it can have a significant impact on your home’s water efficiency and energy efficiency. A single drop can result in several gallons of water being wasted each day, and more than a thousand per year. This is a steep price to pay for a simple drip.
A dripping faucet is usually a simple fix for a plumber. Sometimes it’s as simple as replacing a worn cartridge or seal.
- Fridge Water Line Malfunction
A water supply line is required to transport water to any refrigerator that has an ice maker or water dispenser. You have an appliance-related plumbing issue if the water supply line gets clogged up or leaks. An appliance repair technician could be hired, or an experienced plumber could replace the line.
A caveat to appliance-related problems is that if your appliance is still under warranty, you might need to choose a specific company to repair the appliance. This will avoid the warranty being voided. To find out if your appliance is covered by warranty, check your warranty terms.
- Dishwasher Drain Problems
Incorrect installation techniques can lead to many dishwasher drain problems. An example: If the drain is not installed with a high loop, the dishwasher might not drain properly after each cycle. The connection between the dishwasher drain drain and the sink drain should be on the opposite side of the P-trap, which is closer to the sewer. Sewer gasses could escape.
These problems are not limited to installation. Dishwashers can also experience plumbing issues if a part of the machine, such as a valve, fails or is beyond its useful life expectancy.
- Leaks under the Sink
Sometimes, an under-sink leak can be obvious and large. Other times, it can be subtle and difficult to identify. A plumber is the best choice in these situations. Leaks under-sink can be caused by the disposal, drain, P-trap, dishwasher drain or faucet.
