What is your sink problem?
I have a clogged sink!
Sink clogs are extremely common. In the bathroom, they can be caused by clumps of soap, hair and dirt that get trapped on your sink stopper or in the P-trap and build up, blocking water from flowing out of the drain. In the kitchen, soap and food particles can find a footing in the pipes and start to build up there – especially if you’ve poured grease of oil down the sink (remember, grease and oil can coat your pipes and cause all sorts of problems).
My sink is leaking!
Faucets are some of the most used appliances in your home – it would be remarkable is they DIDN’T drip every now and then! Leaky faucets are caused simply by the parts of your faucet wearing out. Again, this is a fairly common occurrence and is usually a simple fix. You should try to have a dripping faucet fixed soon after you notice it – a constantly dripping faucet can corrode fixtures, stain sink bowls and waste a lot of water.
One of my sinks has really low water pressure!
If a few sinks in your home have low water pressure or temperature fluctuations, you might have faulty aerators, rotting pipes or other defective plumbing parts. This could be a simple fix, or it could require a more complicated repair job. If you have low water pressure coming from one or more of your sinks, call Magnolia Plumbing today for a quick diagnosis and recommendations!
My sinks smell bad!
Odors in the sink can be caused by two things: a dried up P-trap (easy to fix) or a bacterial build up (not as easy). If your P-trap has dried up, just run the faucet for a while to fill it back up.
Alternatively, the odor could be coming from growth of bacteria in the bio-film coating the vertical drain pipe. When you run your sink, you release some of these bacteria into the air, causing the odor. If you have strong, unpleasant odors coming from your pipe, call Magnolia Plumbing!
