Best Way to Clean Faucet Aerator

clock April 4, 2013 23:33 by author Chris Vigna

Faucet Aerators can become clogged over time, causing problems with the water flow. Mineral deposits from within the water can accumulate in the faucet aerators in the kitchen and bathroom sinks. Common signs of a clogged aerator are changes in water pressure and uneven flow. For the best results, routinely clean this part of the faucet. How often it will be necessary depends on how many minerals are present in the city’s water.

Cleaning a faucet aerator is a very simple process that the home owner can do themselves. Protect the aerator with a rag to avoid any damage or scratching. Use pliers over the rag to unscrew the faucet aerator. Take the piece apart once it has been removed. There are usually three separate pieces in a standard aerator, the housing unit, main body, and the screen. Keep in mind how it comes apart to make reassembly easier. Let all pieces soak in a dish of white vinegar overnight. The next day, scrub each piece with a tooth brush to remove debris. Reassemble the faucet aerator and screw it back in place. At this point the water should run evenly and at full pressure.

In most situations this will be enough to solve the problem with the water flow. In case there is still low pressure or uneven flow, call a professional to investigate for further complications. The professional staff at All About Pipes Plumbing, Inc. can help you get your water flow back on track.

Choices for bathroom and kitchen faucets

clock January 7, 2013 05:21 by author Chris Vigna
Bathroom and kitchen faucets are seen and used very frequently. It is important to choose quality faucets that are easy to use and that have the finish and features that you desire. The kitchen is a high traffic area of the home where families and guests seem to always congregate. Cooking and entertaining are vital and enjoyable activities in many homes, and it is important to have a sink and faucet that are both functional and fitting for your kitchen decor.
 
Kitchen faucets come in a myriad of color finishes. Various shades of black and bronze are a trendy and up to date kitchen faucet finish. There are also a wide variety of classic kitchen faucet finishes such as stainless steel and chrome. Styles range from old world styles such as Victorian looking faucets, to modern stream lined styles. Faucets come in one and two handle varieties. Choose the type that you feel gives you the most precise control of temperature and volume. Kitchen faucets also have various sprayer options, such as a side sprayer, or a pull down sprayer. When choosing a kitchen faucet, consider whether or not you plan to use a built in water filtration system.
 
Bathroom faucets should match the overall decor of your bathroom. As with kitchen faucets, there are a myriad of color finish and style options for bathroom faucets. Choose one that is functional, fits in well with your bathroom design, and has a good warranty. Sometimes bathroom faucet choices are limited by the type of sink and faucet holes already in place.
 
When you are ready to move forward with faucet choices, as well as any plumbing services, repairs, or renovations, contact All About the Pipes Plumbing, in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina Area. We are an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau, were rated Best of Charlotte in Charlotte Weekly Magazine, and offer two year warranties on all parts and labor.

How Can I Extend The Life Of My Kitchen Sink Plumbing?

clock August 12, 2012 21:51 by author Chris Vigna

You might have the very best heavy gauge stainless steel kitchen sink on the market. You no doubt take good care of it and avoid using caustic cleaners or scratchy scouring pads to clean it. As a result your sink will look good and last for many years.

But what about the plumbing underneath the sink? Out of sight out of mind you say? Shame on you. We have a better solution. You can make the unseen plumbing last for years with just a minimal amount of care. Let's start at the beginning. Start with the best plumbing fixtures you can get your hands on.

The next thing you should be sure to avoid doing is using hard-core, extra strength drain cleaners to clear a completely clogged drain. You know what kind of clog we are talking about. We mean a drain that does not allow any water to flow on through. When you pour some of that nasty lye based caustic cleaner down your drain, it will sit there and work at corroding not only your pipes and traps, it can also eat away at your sink. You don't want to replace your plumbing so early in the game.

The other under counter element you must protect is your garbage disposal. Never pour drain cleaner into the side of the sink where your disposal lives. Bad things can and usually will happen. Don't put in things like corn silk, onion skin, bananas and anything else you could not easily digest yourself into the disposal. Run plenty of cold water through the disposal after you use it to flush out all the bad stuff. The best option for under sink care is to call the guys at All About The Pipes Plumbing Inc. when faced with a major clog. They know how to use a snake or a vacuum device to remove the sitting water. One call and it is done, quickly and economically.
