Your kitchen relies on a well operated, fully functional plumbing system to work well. Plumbing issues in the kitchen are more than just a mere inconvenience because it will affect your ability to cook food at home. While some emergencies issues are easy to deal with, other will require a hands-on expertise of a professional.
Here's what you can do when you're facing a kitchen plumbing emergency.
2. Leaky Kitchen Faucet
Dealing with a leaky kitchen faucet might require a professional repair or even replacement, but it's always worthwhile to check if it can be dealt with before calling in the experts. If your faucet is leaking from the base then the culprit might be the seal. If you want to take a good look at the seal, you will have to disassemble the faucet yourself and look at the water source.
3. Clogged kitchen sink
Most kitchen sinks are equipped with a trap that's designed to keep sewer gases and odors entering your home. Sometime materials like soap and grease builds in the trap and obstruct the flow of water. This might also cause a leak in the sink.
4. Issues with Garbage Disposal
Garbage disposal is great when it comes to disposing of garbage, but at times materials like grease and bones get stuck in it. The best way to deal with it would be to try resetting it by pressing the reset button.
5. Leaks in Dishwasher
It's not uncommon to have dishwasher leaks in our houses, and sometimes it can be dealt with. If you are facing a dishwasher leak, you can always check beneath the counter to check for leaks. A wrecked float switch or a damaged spray arms can also cause leaks. Usually all you need to do is tighten a connection or add in a sealant.
