Stainless steel is a steel alloy with 11% chromium. The chromium in stainless steel forms a film of chromium oxide over the surface of the metal, so that it is not exposed to air and water, that can trigger corrosion. This alloy is used for manufacturing various products, especially cutlery. Stainless steel sinks are among the most commonly used products of this alloy. The main reason for its popularity is its durability, as compared to other materials, like porcelain and cast iron. Stainless steel is rust-resistant, and retains its luster for a longer period. It is perfect for making deeper sinks, as it is strong enough to hold more utensils and can match almost all types of interior decor.
Using a plunger in the right way is essential to get the desired results. Choose a plunger that has a suction cup large enough to cover the drain opening completely. Coat the rim of the plunger cup with petroleum jelly. This is done to get a tight seal. Now, fill the clogged sink with water up to 1 inch below the rim so that the plunger cup is also covered with water. In case of a double sink, fill the second one as well. Block adjacent fixtures using wet rags as well. Insert the plunger into the water, hold it upright, and pump it vigorously. Use about 20 forceful strokes. You can repeat it 2-3 times to get the best results.
If your faucet is of this type, you will find the set screw after pushing back the handle. Unscrew it to remove the handle. Now, carefully take the escutcheon cap off, mounting screws to pull the cylinder out. The neoprene seal can be taken off with a blunt screwdriver. Wipe off all the cylinder openings with white vinegar and if you notice any damaged seals, replace them. To change the entire cylinder, simply place the new one in its place. After replacement, reassemble the entire faucet.
