The kitchen and bathroom faucets and sinks come in a wide variety of styles, finishes, and materials. They may be constructed as one unified piece or as separate components designed to work together in a cohesive fashion. Some of the options available for faucets are separate handles for hot and cold water versus one handle that controls both, and the availability of a sprayer.
Some faucets mount on top of the sink while others are bottom mounted. Sinks also come in a variety of styles, materials, and mounting positions. When it comes to choosing which components you want for your New Port Richey, FL home, it is best to consult with a Roman Plumbing Inc. technician. Our experts will be able to inform you of the best styles and the technicalities you may want to consider, in order to keep your faucets & sinks working properly.
Servicing Water Faucets
When it comes to servicing faucets, the four main types are cartridge, compression valve, ceramic disk, and ball valve. Some types are easier to repair than others. Cartridge faucets usually have one handle that operates in an up/down mode that controls water flow, and a sideways mode that controls temperature.
When this type of faucet begins to leak, it can usually be traced to a worn-out cartridge or seal. Compression valve faucets are found in many older homes. They shut off the water supply by compressing a washer as the faucet handle is turned. Frequent use will cause the washer to wear out and it will begin to leak, requiring it to be replaced.
Ceramic disk faucets operate in a similar fashion to a cartridge faucet with the up/down motion controlling water flow and the sideways motion controlling water temperature. However, this type of faucet uses ceramic disks that work in conjunction with rubber seals to control the water volume. While the disks themselves can wear out, the more likely components to begin leaking are the rubber seals. Cartridge type water faucets are very common and slightly more complex than other types. As their name suggests, they depend on the operation of an internal cartridge to control the amount of water flow. Repairs generally consist of replacing the cartridge.

One of the best things a homeowner can do as far as servicing sinks is to keep them in top operating condition. Whether the sinks are stainless steel, copper, or some other material, the surface area should be kept clean and protected from scratches and stains as much as possible. While some clogs are inevitable, many of them can be prevented by careful usage. Hot grease should never be poured down a kitchen sink as it can harden when it cools and clog the drain. Hair and soap should be kept out of a bathroom drain as these commonly result in clogs.
If a sink or drain pipe becomes clogged, it may be possible for the homeowner to unclog them using a plunger or plumber's snake. However, we do not recommended that homeowners use harsh chemicals as they can cause further damage in addition to being dangerous to use. Instead of relying on such drastic measures, call us to take care of the problem for you. We are reliable experts and will service all of your faucet and sink needs.
