Gathering together for a meal has always been a common practice at home. Most homeowners spend most of their time in their kitchen, preparing, serving, and enjoying food. There’s a reason the kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home!
It is hardly ground-breaking information to read that a clean and functional kitchen is part of our day to day routine… but when things – including kitchen plumbing – don’t work as they should, it brings frustration into our homes.
Today, we want to take a look at some of the most common plumbing problems plaguing our kitchens. Do you relate? Have you been procrastinating getting a certain issue fixed?
Today’s the day, so don’t hesitate to give us a call to solve your kitchen plumbing woes! Call Tony and the H2-Pro team now: (03) 9844 1444.
Smelly and clogged kitchen sink
Most of us hardly consider the impact food particles can have on drainage and plumbing. What we do instantly notice, however, is when water seems to struggle to flow freely down the sink. Why is it taking an extra 20 seconds for that water to drain?
Slow draining water is a tell-tale sign that there is something impeding the natural and regular flow of water.
While the trusty plumber is often the first port of call, it’s still best to call a reliable local plumber to ensure there isn’t a larger, hidden problem looming.
Food particles may be a common culprit in this situation, but it can also be hardened cooking oil and coffee beans, or other solids making their way down your pipes causing slow drainage.
Drip, drip, drip: leaking kitchen tap
Every drop of water counts. Leaky faucets should never be ignored, no matter how minor you think the problem is.
Your leaky faucet is not only an annoyance to your ears, but can also add to your monthly or quarterly water bills.
Got a leaking tap? It’s in need of some help from your local Doncaster plumber.
Dripping faucets may have O rings or screws that are loose or worn out that needs to be replaced or repaired.
A broken pipe or fittings can also be the cause, while cracks that have formed can also result in leaks. Fixing your faucet can save you from further annoyance and money if done as soon as you notice the problem!
Low water pressure
The pressure of water flowing from your kitchen faucet may not be exactly as you expect, and while not a (seemingly) huge issue, it’s still a mild annoyance.
In the case of low water pressure in the kitchen (or in fact, any room of the home) you may be experiencing an accumulation of water sediments in pipes partially blocking off your water supply. As a result, water is flowing slower than normal, resulting in lower pressure.
