Your kitchen plumbing is vital for water distribution within your kitchen. Like other areas and components in your plumbing system, your kitchen plumbing can experience issues if left unattended. Here are some typical problems with kitchen plumbing that you could encounter this upcoming winter.
Clogged Pipes In Your Kitchen
Most individuals have accidentally poured grease or oil down the drain. As a reminder, you should always throw these items in the trash and not down your drains. If your pipes become clogged due to oil and other things, don’t hesitate to reach out to Alpha Plumbing to clear those annoying clogged drains.
Leaky Plumbing Fixtures
Dripping faucets are not only annoying, but they also can increase the cost of your water bill. Just a single drop per second can waste hundreds of gallons of water per day and thousands per year. Often the problem is just as minor as a blown seal, washer, or cartridge replacement is sufficient.
Water Line Failure
Refrigerators with ice makers or water dispensers commonly have a water supply line to provide water to these amenities. If there is a clogged water line or a leak, you will have a plumbing problem in the kitchen. A factor to consider is whether or not your equipment is still under warranty. You may be required to choose a particular repair shop to avoid voiding the warranty.
Drainage Issues With Your Dishwasher
Many dishwasher drain issues are due to improper installation techniques. For instance, if the drain does not have a high loop, the appliance may not drain correctly with each cycle. Also, whenever valves malfunction, this can result in kitchen plumbing problems.
Leaks Under Your Kitchen Sink
Occasionally, leaks under the sink are visible and audible. Leaks can originate from the P-trap, the disposal, the dishwasher drain, or the faucet. If you need assistance identifying the source of these leaks, contact us to eliminate the problem.
