Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It brings your family together for meals and conversation. But, when it starts to have plumbing issues, it can really hurt the feel and function of this super important room.

Here are some of the most common plumbing problems, how to diagnose them and how to fix them so that your kitchen returns to top form, fast.

1. Dishwasher Will Not Drain

If your dishwasher won’t drain, drains slowly, or leaks when in use, then you have a drainage issue that needs to be addressed quickly. Check the drain basket for clogs. Often, this small basket catches debris like food particles, soap build up, and other residues. It can clog quickly if you don’t wash it regularly. Take the basket out, wash it, put it back in. If the dishwasher still has standing water or will not drain, the problem is elsewhere.

It can be a bad motor, clogged drain pipe, or even a problem with pipes and hoses connecting the sink to the dis washer. If the basket is not the problem, it is a good idea to call in a professional Toronto plumber or washing machine repair person.

2. Sink Won’t Drain

Slow draining or non-draining kitchen sinks are unsanitary. There can be several reasons the drain clogs, and they should be looked at by a professional. If you have a garbage disposal, putting the wrong things in it is often a cause of the clogging. Again, it is best to call in a plumber.

3. Leaky Faucet

A leaky faucet is annoying, can cause flooding and will cost you a lot of money in electric bills. Ever drip is costing you money. Often this is caused by bad seals in the faucet but the problem could be deeper, even going deep down into your plumbing system. Definitely a great idea to have a plumber inspect the problem.

4. Electrical Problems

If your fridge seems to start and stop on its own, your stove or oven is not getting hot enough or is getting too hot, or your water is coming out of your faucets in spurts, you could have an electrical problem. It is a must to call in an electrician. Water, electricity and Do It Yourself do not mix! It can be very dangerous and can cause fires in your walls.

Call in a Toronto professional and have your kitchen working in top form, safely, in no time.
