Kitchen Sink Leak Repair

The water under your sink is never a pleasant surprise. If you notice puddles in your kitchen cabinet under the sink, call the plumber immediately.
Meanwhile there are some things you can do.
If your sink is leaking, the reason could be the broken water supply lines, the drain lines or the seal between the sink and the countertop. A leaking pullout sprayer may also cause the puddles of water under your sink. The sprayer leaks are not always easily noticeable because it the leaks often occur when the faucet is running.

When you notice the leaking sink, there some things you can do:
  1. Call your plumber. Some broken parts of your sink can be replaced easily, when the others need special attention. Trying to fix a leaking sink yourself may lead to a bigger problem. Attempt fixing your sink only if you know exactly how to do it. The guessing may cause you to break working parts and end up in calling you plumber with a bigger problem.
  2. Shut off the water valve. If your sink is leaking, the water can be stopped with closing the water valve, which should be under your sink.
Do not wait for the problem to get bigger. You lose money with every drop of water. Environmental Protection Agency states that the average home wastes about 10,000 gallons of water per year due to water leaks.
Check for water leaks in your home constantly, many can be neglected for years causing your water bill to go up.
