3 Reasons to Hire a Plumber for Sink Repairs
Every St. Louis homeowner is familiar with malfunctioning sinks, but if you don't have the time to research how to fix your leaky faucet, consider hiring a plumber because plumbing experts are equipped with the knowledge to fix even the most elusive plumbing problems.
Common Sink Complications
- Low Water Pressure – If your plumbing system is experiencing low water pressure, you may receive only a trickle of water when you turn on the faucet of your sink. Your water pressure can become low because of the accumulation of hard water or silt deposits in the faucet aerator. You can clean the aerator, but if low water pressure returns, contact your plumber to install a whole-house water softener to combat the hard water. Your plumber can also repair leaks if leaking is the cause of the weak water pressure.
- Clogged Sink Drains – Clogging is a common affliction of bathroom and kitchen sinks because oil, fat, food waste, hair, and grease build up in the drains. If plunging doesn't solve the problem, consider using a chemical drain cleaner or scheduling a repair with your plumber.
- Leaky Faucets – A dripping faucet is more than a nuisance. It's a contributor to excess water usage and the increase in your water bill. You can troubleshoot your leaky faucet by checking seals and tightening washers to determine the source of the leak. Typically, damaged seals need to be replaced to eliminate the leaking completely.
