Installing a sink, faucet and garbage disposal make take some time but will be worth every penny you spend in the end to know the job is done right. Sure there will be maintenance throughout the years but that’s just like everything else in life. We all buy or lease cars knowing we have gas, insurance and minor repair expenses. Plumbing and drain cleaning is no different. Owning property is fun but their are expenses that need to be address every year. If you stay on top and are aware of what needs to be done you’ll be OK.

When installing a sink you need to make sure it’s secure and won’t leak or pivot. Sinks are anchored down with screws to the counter itself. Weather it’s a laminate or granite counter top the sink needs to properly secured. If your dealing with granite you’ll need to hire a professional granite counter guy. Cracking granite wouldn’t be much fun knowing how expensive granite sections are.

Once the sink in installed the faucet and any other accessories can be installed. The garbage disposal is another plumbing item that needs to be properly installed. Drain pipes of the garbage disposal need to be installed with the right pitch so there’s no back flow into ones dishwasher drain. We see all sorts of plumbing mistakes everyday with how garbage disposals are installed.

Leaking around your Kitchen Sink?

Whenever you come in contact with a leak, right away a trigger should turn on in your head telling you to turn off your water. There are two places normally to turn your water off. Either from under the sink or at the main water supply to the property. After turning off your water call a neighbor or friend and ask who they have used in the past for plumbing problems.

Next, call the plumbing company and tell them your problem. Once they calm your nerves the hard part has passed. Finding a leak can be very obvious or can be a major headache. Water can develop a leak from many different sources near the kitchen sink. Don’t let water fool you. Water is always on the move, figuratively speaking. Having water in one spot doesn’t mean that the leak is coming from there. A water leak in the kitchen can be coming from the dishwasher, garbage disposal, instant hot dispenser, water filers, kitchen sink faucet, water lines, drain pipes and more. Have the plumber take a look and let him decide what needs to be fixed.
