Kitchen Plumbing Tips

The kitchen is one of the most frequently used rooms of your house. Tasks like preparing meals, washing dishes and cleaning up after dinner rely heavily on having a plumbing system that is in quality condition. For this reason, kitchen plumbing maintenance is extremely important for busy families. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh, PA, we proudly offer premium residential and commercial plumbing services for local clients including sink and faucet installation, garbage disposal repair, dishwasher replacement, clog removal, drain cleaning, hydro jetting, leak detection, professional plumbing inspections and routine maintenance services. Do you want to prioritize the integrity of your kitchen plumbing? Here are some tips on how you can achieve your desire.

Troubleshooting Garbage Disposal Problems

Damaged or dysfunctional garbage disposals can be a nuisance in the kitchen. Troubleshooting the issue can help you get your disposal back to work in a flash. If you hear a humming, this is an indication that something is lodged inside the unit, making it difficult for the blades to rotate. Shut off the power to the circuit that the disposal is connected to avoid electrocution or injury from the blade. Locate the item that is stuck and carefully remove it. Is a slow draining disposal your primary concern? Then the drain trap might be clogged. Again, be sure the power is shut off completely, and do your best to manually remove the material. Another common garbage disposal problem is leaking. If you notice pools of water forming beneath your disposal, then its important to address the leak right away before major water damage occurs. In many cases, the hose that connects your disposal to the dishwasher will be the cause. If so, replace the hose. If the leak continues, you may need a professional repair or replacement.

Keep Your Drain Line Clog Free

A clogged sewer line can cause a lot of frustration. No one wants to rinse their pots and pans while worrying about wastewater backing up into their kitchen sink. Protect yourself from these issues by taking care of your drains. Foods like coffee grounds, eggshells, grease, oil and vegetable peels can cause large clogs inside your pipes, so avoid placing them inside your sink or drains. Its also a good idea to clean your drains once a week with a baking soda, vinegar and warm water. Scheduling occasional drain cleanings and hydro jetting service can also help clear away accumulating layers of buildup.
