admin. sink & faucet. September 03rd , 2017.
Faucets on sinks are of four types: cartridge, compression, ball, and ceramic disk. Compression faucets have rubber washers which secure the valve. Since these washers wear out easily, they need to be replaced. All the other types do not have rubber washers, but are likely to develop leaks after being used for a while. You will have to either replace the entire assembly or just the O-ring in such cases.
To avoid the sink from clogging, dispose the leftover food into the garbage before washing the dishes. Using a kitchen drain plug is essential while you wash the dishes. Make sure you clean the drain pipe regularly using the aforementioned ways to avoid any sludge build-up, even if it is not clogged.
Whoa! This was quite a tiring session, wasn't it? However, even if you might be tired, you must be feeling pretty satisfied as you were yourself able to fix the leak!
The job can be finished in a few hours, depending on how good you are at all the plumbing maneuvers. Replacing the sink could be considerably easy, if you observe the way the whole assembly was before and reproduce it back again, as it was.
