So read on, and remember that The Sunny Plumber SoCal is here for all of your plumbing needs, kitchen-based or otherwise.
Your Faucet Is Dripping
This is a very common problem. A dripping faucet is also one of those problems that are so common that some homeowners seem to think they don’t even really need to deal with it. This is not entirely true, though—in fact, it is not true at all! While the leak may look “minor” and you are probably right in not declaring a leaking faucet and emergency, the fact remains that you are going to want to have it repaired sooner than later.
You may notice that the faucet itself is dripping, or you may notice that there is water pooling around the base of the faucet where it meets with the sink fixture. You could have a cracked gasket or O-ring, though detachable faucets may also have leaks in the fabric of the extendable hose. Your best bet in such instances is definitely to have a professional resolve the problem.
Your Drain Is Clogged
Clogged drains can strike anywhere, but they seem particularly fond of kitchen sinks. This is not really a surprise, considering the fact that you are washing dishes and what have you in this sink. It is nearly impossible not to get food scraps of some kind down the drain, even when you’re trying to be careful. That is why we suggest that you contact us when your drain is clogged, rather than turning to ineffective, corrosive chemical cleaners.
Of course, avoiding clogs from the start is your best option here. Keep drain covers in place, do your best to limit any food waste that goes down the drains, and be sure not to put FOG (fats, oil, grease) down the drains, as this will all congeal and will definitely lead to clogs. While we’re on the subject—
Your Garbage Disposal Is Jammed
It happens to the best of us. Celery stalks, corn husks—eventually a very fibrous food is going to wind up making its way into the garbage disposal. Of course, you may even drop a utensil down the drain!
Whatever it is that has jammed up the disposal, be sure to shut the power to the disposal off completely before trying to remove it—and never try to do so with your hand! Use a pair of needlenose pliers or try to rock the grinder plates a bit with a wooden dowel or spoon. Don’t overdo it and cause damage to your disposal, though. We are happy to come and take care of the job for you.
