Part four of of a four part series on residential plumbing projects focuses on kitchen plumbing.
Kitchen PlumbingAs a rule, kitchen plumbing fits into two categories: The dishwasher, and the kitchen sink, however, sometimes you may have a refrigerator that has both a chilled water dispenser and an ice machine. What a lot of people forget when they buy such items is that if you get a fridge like this, you’ll need a plumbing connection for both the water and the ice maker, as well as an electrical connection. But what about the dishwasher and the kitchen sink?
Well, for one, if you wish to install a new kitchen sink, you have to make sure that it will work with your existing plumbing. That’s why you want to actually call in a plumber to help you install it. For example, if you install a sprayer in addition to the regular kitchen sink, it will need a split connection from the main intake pipe. As for a dishwasher, a lot of people don’t realize that the sink and the dishwasher share a drain. You want to make sure that your drain will allow both the sink and the dishwasher to function without backing up.
Plumbers and Drains
One of the many jobs that a plumber does is to upgrade your drain to allow for more use. With the combined waste flow of the dishwasher, the kitchen sink and the garbage disposal, you have a lot of outflow going from your kitchen. You want to make sure that your drains will allow it. A plumber can also help you to get the right sink for your kitchen as well, and we’re not referring to just decor.
So, as you hopefully have seen by now, a plumber can help you with a lot of residential plumbing projects including your kitchen plumbing.
