How to replace the kitchen sink drain pipe in the wall?
When it comes to plumbing fixes, some homeowners decide to do it themselves for the first time, looking for a screwdriver or a level in the process. We believe that it should come as no surprise that actions as tricky as these cannot lead to the desired outcome. Firstly, you can run into problems you have never dealt with, and there won”t be any explanations on YouTube or websites with DIY methods. Secondly, such inconvenient actions can lead to leakages in the nearest future, and eliminating them costs more than the initial installation. But how to understand that your pipes need to be replaced and it”s time to call a specialist? This happens mainly because corroded pipes break inside the wall over time. Regular maintenance will help prevent leaks and holes in drain pipes, but if an emergency has already occurred, we will help you replace the kitchen sink drain in the wall.
There are often two solutions to the problem of broken drain pipes inside the wall. In the first scenario, an old section of pipe is cut out of the affected wall, and the new one is fitted in its place. However, we believe this way is impractical since it might result in expensive property damage restorations, which is unpleasant for a simple replacement. The better option is to use a PVC plastic pipe to the place of the broken section. Such innovation with rubber couplings will be an excellent and cheap solution to the issue, despite the main metal section of the pipe. Nevertheless, our specialist will offer you several solutions to the problem, and you will choose the most suitable for you. Our analysis will be based on a complex diagnostic performed before the beginning of the replacement process.
Remember that you can contact our service anytime you need it instead of waiting for the bursting pipe to flood your home. Our telephone support will provide the first steps before the technician`s appearance, so you will be ready for all possible scenarios. Our assistance won”t cost you an arm and a leg – pleasant promotions, and valuable coupons are already waiting for you on Superior Plumbing & Heating website.
How to perform a kitchen sink drains replacement?
As mentioned above, any process of replacing plumbing facilities requires specific skills and equipment to perform even the most straightforward actions. Both usual kitchen sink drain and drain pipes in the wall replacement are necessary sooner or later because such plumbing elements deteriorate with time. It is affected by their regular use, and the food leftovers can cause severe problems for their owners. We are often asked how to determine the need for kitchen sink drain replacement. You may find constant clogs (slow-draining sink), damaged or corroded pipes or water backing up through your kitchen sink while the dishwasher is running. All these signs that you need a Superior Plumbing & Heating team member to appear at your doorstep.
The replacement process itself is divided into several main stages. First, they will need to perform measurements showing the correct length for your new pipe. It is usually the height from the floor to the middle of the trap arm. If the depth of the new sink differs from the previous one, we will move the trap arm or drain outlet in the wall. The next step is double-checking the required pipe length accuracy, followed by waste pipe and drain trap installation. In the end, we tighten washers and nuts and after turn the faucet on to test the system for performance. If leaks are not detected, the project is ready, and the client is left satisfied! Please note that all actions will be pre-agreed with the client.
How to replace the kitchen sink drains gasket?
Our team believes that one of the possible causes of leaking the kitchen sink is the gasket in the sink strainer. Its replacement might be simple but require special tools like a screwdriver and hammer. In general, the algorithm for kitchen sink drain gasket replacement itself is as follows:
First, it is necessary to remove the top ring, usually constructed with tabs, thanks to which the strainer connects to the sink. Our plumbers have professional tools, which helps to remove them in a flash, but you may use unprepared tools. After that, we remove the tailpipe by tapping on the tabs under the sink, which make the ring move counterclockwise. Further, we get rid of the strainer and old plumber’s putty. Next, place a new rubber gasket and a cardboard ring onto the strainer and screw it on tight. Ultimately, we re-attach the tailpipe and test your sink for possible leaks.
You can try this process yourself, but if you have problems – contact us by calling our round-the-clock call center. Superior Plumbing & Heating offices are always near your area, so we can quickly help you anytime. If you are unsure of your actions and want to do all right the first time, hiring our specialist is a win-win decision.
How to clean the kitchen sink drains?
Based on our experience, kitchen sink drain clogs are among the most frequent blockages in the house. This means cleaning them is a priority and should be done without delays; otherwise, the kitchen will be nonfunctioning. Some of the best-known DIY techniques for getting rid of drain clogs are the tried and true mixture of baking soda and vinegar (1:2 ratio) or filling your garbage disposal with ice cubes, salt and lemon wedges. Also, many homeowners use special drain liquids, but it is essential to choose environmentally-friendly ones in this case.
However, if your clog is a more serious threat and cannot be cleaned as mentioned above, then it is time to call our qualified plumber. Our company prefers two professional drain cleaning methods – hydro-jetting and snaking. The first method is notable because it implies applying high-pressure water to push garbage out of the pipe. The second method is an older analogue and uses a long cable with an auger. When turning, it can effectively eliminate formed clogs, but this method is not as good as a preventive measure.
Superior Plumbing & Heating is ready to help you clean the kitchen sink drain anytime you need. You can see the quality of our work by yourself by reading numerous reviews on different rating resources and paying attention to our certificates.
How to install kitchen sink drain pipes?
We have already voiced the consequences of damaged pipes, but it is essential to mention the features of their installation process. Moreover, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of “drain pipes” – a sink drain tailpiece, a trap and the actual drain pipe itself. It”s not that complicated, but let”s get a little more specific.
So, it is first necessary to shut off the water supply to prevent house flooding. Then we usually unscrew all nuts and disassemble other drainpipe assemblies. Then we clean or replace the sink strainer, connect it with the new tailpiece and cut the extra length of the pipe to fit with a new trap. Then, we link another straight piece running from the drain and thread the coupling over the wall pipe. In the end, we slide a slip joint over the P-trap, insert a washer and check other connections. If anything goes wrong, we”ll fix it instantly. In any case, you get a labour guarantee, which makes us return and fix all errors.
As you can see, the process is quite laborious for an average homeowner who has never dealt with plumbing restorations. If you do not want to worry about the correctness of your actions, then call us immediately before starting work. In this way, Superior Plumbing & Heating will allow you not to waste time on household issues but get installing kitchen sink drain pipes service at an affordable price anytime!
