othing is more annoying than a dripping kitchen faucet. The faucet is one of the top wear components in your home since it’s turned on and off so often.
Some of the most common faucet repair service issues include:
This is a small disc that helps hold the stem screw to the handle of the faucet. If you have dripping around the handle, it’s probably from a worn out o-ring.
The spout is connected to the faucet via the valve seat. Leaking or dripping at the spout is usually attributed to a broken valve seat.
When the faucet is turned on, the washer gets pressed into the valve seat. Eventually, the washers will wear out or corrode, leading to leaking or dripping near the spout.
The garbage disposal is an integral part of your dinner cleanup. If the unit is not working properly, it can cause an irritating disruption to your routine.
Try the following tips and tricks to prevent garbage disposal issues and premature garbage disposal replacement:

It is illegal (and not a very environmentally or plumbing friendly practice) to connect any rain or ground water to the sewer or a septic tank. IF, however, you do hookup – at the very least put a trap in the line to keep sewer gas out of the house.
If you’ve installed a new fill valve, and are certain that everything else in the toilet is working properly, leaks could very well be high water pressure. If your water pressure is so high that it leaks past a Fluidmaster 400A or another new ballcock (aka: “toilet fill valve”) – then you NEED a pressure reducing valve. Other water pipes, connectors, clothes washing machine hoses and your water heater could leak or break. Best to get a water pressure regulator if your pressure to the house is more than 60 pounds
Yes, drain pipes do dry out and get real rough. Will it clear up with use? Maybe. Is there anything you can really do about it? Not after the fact. Prevention is best here – try to run some water through infrequently used drains every so often to keep this from happening.
When the lowest plumbing fixture in the house overflows when another fixture (like a clothes washing machine) is draining; most commonly the septic tank needs to be pumped, there is a break in the sewer pipe outside the house or the main drain is plugged somewhere. However, the washing machine line could be connected to close to the “suds rinse zone”, meaning the washer waste ties into the waste or soil line of another fixture too close downstream from the problem fixture. What is happening is the water is rushing by the suds at a high velocity, pushing ahead of the suds. Because the fixture is the closest place of relief, the suds will come up into the fixture, even a toilet. The code requires that a washing machine, kitchen sink, shower, and dishwasher line be connected at least 5′ downstream from any fixture branch. This could be just one of many possibilities for the bubbling and backup. We strongly recommend contacting a licensed plumber to help you diagnose your individual situation.
