Our kitchens in our business or home is the central location where we cook and enjoy food, wash our dishes, and many other things. It is important that our kitchen sinks are properly maintained and working properly. If you notice something wrong it is critical that the problem be addressed immediately. If the situation is prolonged you might lose your ability to prepare food, wash dishes, and incur unnecessary costs. Below are some helpful hints we hope you find useful...
The internal parts of plumbing in a faucet usually come in four types. The different types of mechanisms that allow water to pass is what makes each one different. The types are cartridge, disc, compression and ball. The first thing McCoy's Plumbing will do on a kitchen sink call is identify which type of faucet we are working with. This can be done by noticing how many handles a faucet has. If there is only one handle present the faucet is a cartridge, ball, or disc, controlling both hot and cold water temperatures. If there are two handles present the fixture is most likely a compression unit. Sometimes we disassemble a unit to find out exactly what type of faucet we are working with to either fix the leak or replace the whole fixture.
If you are mechanically inclined sometimes a problem with your kitchen sink can be repaired without professional assistance. We recommend buying a book or reading the manual and studying the diagrams to help you better understand the inner workings. Just a as a mechanic would study a car before attempting repair we also advise the same. By studying a little before hand you can grab better grasp of how all the pieces fit together to function properly. This is important if you are attempting to fix a leak yourself. If at any point it becomes to complicated we are only a phone call away.
Like a transmission on a car or truck, parts wear out over time and become loose through daily usage. A leak can often be fixed simply by replacing an o-ring, or tightening up a packing-nut. If the problem is internal such as a sealant, it requires replacing an outlet or inlet. These are the easiest tasks to be done yourself, but we can also help. We stock commonly needed replacement parts such as O-rings, inlets, outlets, among other sealants, which only calls for minor adjustments.
