Bathroom plumbing fixtures/appliances include:
Bathroom sinks can either be faucets with separate, raised bowls placed on the countertops or drop-in inserts. Unlike other sinks in the home, bathroom sinks are affected by two things that go down the drain: hair and makeup. These two things can work together to create clogs in your drain. Bathroom showers and tubs can also clog easily from hair and bath products.
Don’t even get us started on toilets! They come with their own set of complicated issues. Luckily, our expert plumbers at Campbell’s Quality Plumbing are trained and experienced in finding solutions to all bathroom plumbing needs!
Kitchen plumbing fixtures/appliances include:
When food scraps go down kitchen drains, garbage disposals are a necessity. They break up the food scraps into tiny pieces. However, garbage disposals can only handle so much and are susceptible to damage. The food scraps can get stuck inside a drain, causing clogs.
Dirty dishes also introduce oil to the kitchen sink’s pipes. The oil may be hot when it is put into the sink, but as it cools, it can cause a serious clog. Oil clogs are particularly bad. The best practice for disposing of oil is wiping it away with paper towels that are then disposed of in the trash.
Dishwashers are a heavily used plumbing appliance in every home. They are designed to withstand a massive amount of use when being properly maintained. However, many households don’t know how to clean and maintain their dishwashers. This can cause the dishwasher to not work optimally or even break. Sometimes, the fluid in the dishwasher backs up into the kitchen sink, and vice versa, because the kitchen sink’s garbage disposal and dishwasher are often connected to the same waste pipe that can easily clog with food waste.
