The professional plumbers on the Bell Plumbing and Heating team see a lot of different kitchen plumbing problems. There are a few, though, that are more common than the rest. We know that any problem with your kitchen plumbing must be resolved by a certified, professional plumber in order to ensure that it is repaired properly. We also believe, though, that understanding the causes of some general kitchen plumbing problems is a great way to avoid repeated issues. Here are 3 examples of some common kitchen plumbing problems from the Denver kitchen plumbing experts at Bell Plumbing and Heating.
One common issue that many homeowners notice in their kitchen is an odor emanating from the sink. This is very likely a problem with your drain trap. The drain trap in your kitchen sink drainage pipe is designed to hold a small amount of water, which prevents a sewer smell from coming up through the pipe into your kitchen. If your drain trap runs dry for any reason – a leak, improper fitting or otherwise – it may account for a foul odor from your sink.
Clogged pipes are another major kitchen plumbing issue that we see time and time again. Remember to put food traps in your drains when doing dishes to avoid food particles from going down the drain. Never pour grease or fat down your drains, as it will congeal and can trap food bits. Also, call a professional plumber from Bell Plumbing and Heating to clear any clogged drains. We can make sure that the entire clog is removed completely. Leaving pieces behind allows it to reform again before long.
Leaking faucets are another common problem that we see time and time again. While a slow drip from your faucet may seem like a minor inconvenience, it can actually seriously increase water costs over time. Leaking pipes can cause real damage, especially if the leak is in an area hidden beneath the floor or behind a wall. Any water leaks must be assessed and repaired by a professional plumber as soon as possible.
