Common Sink Repairs

Here are some of the most common kitchen sink repairs we run across at Benjamin Franklin, Charlotte. If you have any of these problems, we’ll take care of them quickly and effectively.

  • Leaky faucets: When this problem occurs many times the reason is a faulty aerator. This is the part of the faucet where the water comes out. It mixes water and air so that the water flows smoothly. If the aerator has solid particles attached to it, that is usually an indication there is some sort of obstruction. The problem could also be a washer needs to be replaced.
  • A clogged drain: This happens quite a bit in sinks that don’t have a garbage disposal. A piece of food can easily go down your drain and become lodged in a pipe. You should consider calling a plumber for kitchen sink repair rather than use a store-bought chemical however, because harsh cleaners can damage plumbing.
