A clogged sink is a very common and annoying problem. It can hinder your routine and halt your household work. This problem should be solved in time to avoid a severe blockage that might require mechanical cleaning. As soon as you notice that the water drainage has become slow, act immediately instead of waiting for it to get totally clogged. Have a look at the following ways of unclogging your kitchen sink.
First part of the plumbing project is removing the old sink. If you don't want your kitchen to be transformed into a swimming pool, I recommend that you close all the water inlet valves of the sink, before going ahead. Also, disconnect the other connections like supply tube, disposal, and trap. Be careful and keep a tub underneath, while removing the pipes, as they may still contain residual water inside.
Cartridge faucets are the latest household utilities and one amongst the most widely preferred faucet technologies. They usually do not dysfunction, however, continuous load on the faucet can result in damage of the O ring inside it. This ring is a rubber ring that is fitted into a circular casing. You usually cannot see it, unless you take out the aerator. You will need to repair the cartridge faucet if this ring breaks or gets damaged, in order to stop leakages and drips. The only way to repair a cartridge faucet is to replace the O ring with a new one, or completely replace the cartridge with a new one.
A faucet may start dripping due to three main reasons - torn rubber washer, worn out valve threads, or washer screws. Luckily, faucets don't have many moving parts and have less complicated designs.
