Common Sink ProblemsClogged Sink - Kitchen and bathroom sinks are prone to clogs, causing slow to no drainage. If this issue is not repaired quickly, further costly damage to your plumbing system can occur. Kitchen sinks commonly clog due to food and grease accumulating over time. Hair and soap is a common issue causing clogs in bathroom sinks. Food Disposal Issues - If your garbage disposal unit is not working properly, it could have a clog or a backup. Garbage Disposals require regular maintenance and if you have one, it’s important you know how to use it properly.
- Use lots of water to flush it so it can correctly run the waste through its system
- Never dispose of plastic, metal, glass or non-food items. If this happens, never use your hand to get the object out, and instead use pliers or call a plumber.
- Avoid running grease and fats through the disposal
- Use cold water when running the disposal as this will help keep any fat or grease in a more solid state which is better for the system
