What Are Common Kitchen Plumbing Issues?
Homeowners face a range of troublesome kitchen plumbing issues that need to be addressed before they become major emergencies. Some of the more common kitchen plumbing repair issues we deal with include:
- Low water pressure at the sink - This problem is often caused by a clogged up faucet aerator that's suffering from calcium deposits. Once your fixtures reach a certain age, a replacement may be needed.
- Leaky kitchen faucet - A leaky faucet is often caused by a damaged or old seal around your fixture. A faucet repair is necessary to resolve the issue, or a faucet installation is needed if the problem is severe enough.
- Clogged kitchen sink - A clogged kitchen sink is often due to grease and other debris building up over time. As a general rule of thumb, you should always avoid throwing grease and large food scraps down the drain.
While some of these issues can be solved easily, it’s always a good thing to work with a trusted Tri-Cities plumber. At Marc Francis Plumbing we have the expertise to solve even your most complex issues, and can help keep your kitchen running at its best.
The Benefits of New Kitchen Plumbing Fixtures

Spending a bit for faucet replacement or sink repair in your home will help improve the look of your space, while also giving you a more functional home. Fixtures don't last forever, and as they age they become less and less reliable.
