Everyday Faucet Problems
A dripping faucet can certainly drive even the sanest person crazy. If you have fallen victim to annoying faucet problems then chances are the source of the problem is:
- An O-ring – this small disc is attached to the stem screw of your faucet. If you notice that the leak on your faucet is coming from the handle, then chances are you have either a loose or a worn-out O-ring.
- Valve seat – If the spout of your faucet is leaking, you are apt to have sediment that has corroded the valve seat causing it to leak.
- Washers – If you notice when your water is turned on that you have a leak, it is more than likely that the washer that is pressed into the valve seat has worn out.
Can I Fix it or Do I Need to Replace My Sink?
Faucet problems are very fixable and are not typically the reason why a homeowner chooses to replace their sink. It is usually design issues that trigger homeowners to invest in a new sink. When kitchen renovations are underway, and especially if you have elected to update your appliances, it may make good sense to also update your sink. The primary physical reasons why anyone would replace their sink, if not for design, would be if the seal flange or even the drain basket was broken.
Do You Have a Garbage Disposal and Want to Prevent Problems?
If you have a garbage disposal in your home and are looking to avoid any major issues with it, you may want to follow these simple, useful tips in order to keep it working efficiently and safely. For starters, never put any hard items like shells or bones into your disposal. These items will cause a serious jam and a good deal of damage to the blades.
Next, get in the habit of disposing of your materials in stages, rather than all at once, especially if you have a whole lot of food waste to dispose of. You surely don’t want to jam the unit. Furthermore, when you have finished using the garbage disposal be sure to run hot water through the disposal unit. This will immediately clean the blades and keep your disposal running efficiently and smoothly. Finally, if ever your garbage disposal needs repairs, since it has very sharp blades and can be unpredictable, we highly recommend you call our professionals to render the repairs.
