Updating Faucets, Sinks and Plumbing Fixtures

Updating your sinks and plumbing fixtures can be a quick and easy way to update a kitchen or bathroom quickly and inexpensively.

Your average home has many sinks with just as many different names. Lavatories, (what plumbers call bathroom sinks), kitchen sink, bar sink, vegetable sink, laundry sinks or mop sinks, and even wet bar sinks located in outdoor kitchens.

Sinks can also be made from a number of materials. Some of these materials can be pretty standard, such as stainless steel, porcelain, or marble. Other materials, such as glass, copper, brass, and even stone can be more exotic.

Regardless of the material, they are made out of or the location in your home or business, all sinks have the basic components – drain line, strainer, and stopper. Well-made lavatories will also have a built-in overflow drain.

The following articles describe the installation, connections, and cleaning of the sinks in your home.

One of the most common leaks in customers' home takes place when the o-rings and seals inside of a faucet become worn or when the cartridge or stem needs to be replaced. Water leaking from the faucet runs down behind and under the sink or lavatory making it seem like the sink itself is leaking.

Leaks showing up under kitchen sinks and lavatories may also be caused by other product failures. Basket strainers, garbage disposals, water lines, dishwasher drain lines, and the plumbing drain assembly itself could also be the source.
