Our kitchen and bathroom sinks are one of the most used plumbing fixtures in our homes. Over time, sinks will dull in appearance, experience chips, stains, and scratches. On the average, sinks will last about 15 years before their appearance typically prompts homeowners to replace them. Contact a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumber in Fort Worth for sink installation, sink repair, and service to drains and faucets.
Sink Installation and Repair
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing offers sink installation and repair. Some of the most frequent repairs of the bathroom and/or kitchen sink include:
In the kitchen sink, food particles, fat, oil, and grease (FOG) are the leading cause of a clogged drain. Proper disposal will ensure grease clogs aren’t a constant problem in your home. The bathroom sink will experience a drain clog due to soap scum, toothpaste, and hair. The use of drain screens where possible is a wise decision, and helps prevent clogs. Furthermore, shaving can be performed from a basin, rather than the bathroom sink. The basin water can be used on plants when you’re finished.

Tips to Reduce Clogs
After hand washing dishes, allow water to run 15 – 20 seconds to flush particulates out of the drain. In the kitchen, wipe plates, utensils, and bowls before placing them in the sink for washing. Allow grease, oil, and fat to cool, and place in a container that seals tightly, dispose of in the trash or routinely carry to a recycle center.
That consistent drip from your sink’s faucet may not seem to be a great deal of water, but over time those drips can and will waste a considerable amount of water. In addition, a dripping faucet can ruin a sink’s finish. Contact a plumber in Fort Worth for faucet repair.
