Sink and Faucets
All kitchen sink plumbing systems include a sink, faucet, and a drain. Your kitchen sink system will need to be hooked up to our households main water source to function. Normally, your kitchen will require pipes running through both the floors in your home and your walls. If you are taking on a large kitchen remodel or need a repair to your kitchen plumbing it is best to leave the installation and maintenance to the professionals. Kitchen systems can be harder to install than many may assume from looking at them.
A sink faucet will need a direct connection to your cold-water and a pipe routing from your main water source into your water heater then back to the faucet. For your faucet to operate correctly, there will need to be connecting lines to your cold and hot water valves.
When it comes to the sink and its drain the pipes will have to be fixed together properly to avoid blockages and other potential issues. All sink drains have a curved portion that serves as a sink trap, which traps debris drained and prevent the sink from clogging deeper within the system. It is important to regularly maintain your drains to ensure that all debris is cleaned out so the system continues to work properly.
For any kitchen plumbing system with a garbage disposal, a waste line will need to be installed to dispose of excess debris. Our kitchen plumbers in the loop and Chicagoland area can help to install your waste line to ensure no back-up occurs. It is important to have a waste line correctly installed for a garbage disposal to avoid clogging and back up in your sink.
