    Tips for Installing a New Faucet
    Changing an old faucet out for a newer and classier model can be a relatively quick and easy home improvement project. Here are some tips to help make sure replacing your faucet does not become a long and difficult chore.
    Faucet
    Step 1: Choosing the Right Faucet
    As with many other do-it-yourself projects, the success of your plumbing installation project is largely determined by how much preparation you put in. For starters, make sure you purchase the right type of faucet for your sink. Check to make sure the new faucet is intended for a sink with the same number of holes and the same spread between the holes – you may need to look at the sink from underneath to be certain. Once you’ve purchased your new faucet, spend some time looking over the instructions. Often, these instructions will tell you exactly what equipment and tools you’ll need. These will most likely include adjustable wrenches, pliers and plumber’s putty (or silicone caulk, depending on the sink type).
    Step 2: Removing the Old Faucet
    In many cases, the hardest part of installing a new faucet is removing the old faucet. Start by turning off the hot- and cold-water supply lines to the faucet. If you cannot figure out how to turn off the water locally, use the main water shutoff. Then turn on the faucet to drain the water and release the water pressure. Next, disconnect the water lines and any bolts or connectors on the underside of the faucet. You might have to wiggle the faucet back and forth, but you should now be able to pull it off of the sink. Clean off and remove any leftover sealant or other material from the sink surface; use a razor blade for stubborn sealant.
    Step 3: Installing Your New Faucet
    Now you’re ready for the final step of the plumbing installation. If any of the water supply lines are old and worn, consider replacing them – it’s easier to do at this stage than to replace them after the faucet has been installed. Mount the new faucet according to the manufacturer’s instructions, applying a 1/4-inch bead of plumber’s putty or other sealant appropriate for your sink composition. Reattach the water supply lines to the faucet while being careful not to overtighten any nuts. Next, make sure the faucet is in the “off” position, turn the water supply back on and check for any initial leaks around the supply lines. Finally, turn on your new faucet and check again for leaks.
    As long as you don’t see any signs of water leaking, it’s time to enjoy your new fixture. If you need a new faucet or are having trouble installing a faucet that you have purchased, call Power Pro Plumbing today. We are ready to help you with all of your plumbing jobs!

    Garbage Disposals

    Few kitchen appliances get as much abuse as garbage disposals. Tackling problems from damaged blades to blocked drains requires plumbing work, although electricians may also be summoned to handle burned motors. A garbage disposal plumbing failure calls for a prompt and adequate solution to get this appliance back to working order.
    How a Garbage Disposal Functions
    Connected to the residential plumbing system, garbage disposals are attached to the base of kitchen sink drains. Disposals grind food scraps before releasing them down the drain with a strong water flow. The grinding chamber of the garbage disposal collects food matter for the shredder within to chop up into small particles. An impeller arm and plate will force the broken-up mixture and liquid down the drainpipe.
    Plumbing Safety Tip
    When cleaning or applying minor do-it-yourself repair, close the power to the circuit serving the garbage disposal. This will disable the grinding action and allow treatment without endangering hands.
    Garbage Disposal
    How to Clean Garbage Disposals
    Regular cleaning of garbage disposals will go a long way in preventing clogged drains and offensive kitchen odors released due to mold and bacteria growing on trapped food particles in the appliance. After turning off the power, extract (with the aid of tongs or pliers) food debris lodged inside the grinding chamber of the garbage disposal. Next, flush the drainpipe clean of small food particles by plugging the drain opening and filling the sink with 4 inches of water. Remove the plug and switch on the garbage disposal. Ensure a contamination-free drainpipe by pouring 1 ½ cups of baking soda down the drain, followed with a cup of white vinegar. Let the mixture sit for some minutes before carefully running a medium-sized pot of boiling water down the drain. Alternatively, mix a gallon of water with 1 tablespoon of liquid chlorine bleach in a clean container and pour the solution down the drain. After this, flush the pipe with cold water.
    Do-It-Yourself Repair to a Clogged Garbage Disposal
    When facing a blocked drain, you should first remove the trap. Place an empty bucket below the drain and, with a pipe wrench, unscrew the fittings to take out the trap. Try to spot the clog and clear it out of the drain. If you fail to detect the obstruction, push and turn a plumber's snake down the pipe until hitting the block. At this point, either break it up or pull it out. When in doubt, research online plumbing guidance or just call in Power Pro to continue with the garbage disposal's plumbing repair.
    Fresh-Scented Kitchen
    Place several ice cubes in the drain together with citrus fruit rinds and grind away. This will not only clean the garbage disposal's cutting blades but will add a pinch of fresh scent to the kitchen.

    P-Traps

    A trap is installed in every type of plumbing fixture either internally or externally. Traps hold water and are used to keep the sewer gas smells from entering the building. The most common of these is the sink P-trap. The P-trap is installed under each kitchen and lavatory sink of your home.
    A sink P-trap is not only the most common trap, it is also the easiest to install or replace. Installing a new P-trap is an easy way to replace your drain if it is leaking, clogged or just old and unsightly.
    Most of the time, the P-traps under the sink can be either the white PVC or the black ABS. Both of these types of pipe are easy to work with. If the pipes are going to be exposed, then you can install a chrome P-trap so it will look nicer.
    P-Traps
    Make this simple job even easier by first gathering up the tools and parts you will need:
    • Medium pipe wrench for metal P-trap
    • Channel-lock pliers for a metal P-trap or for stubborn connections
    • A new PVC P-trap (comes in a complete kit at large hardware stores)
    • Bucket or bowl to catch water – make sure it fits under the P-trap before you start
    • Old towel for mopping up water
    • Small rag or a square piece of plastic and a rubber band
    Before you go after your replacement P-trap or a PVC kit, make sure you measure your pipes to ensure you get the correct size! Whether working with metal or PVC P-traps, you will make this job a lot easier and less messy by using PVC as your new P-trap.
    Completely clear the area under the sink where you will be working.
    1. Unscrew the nut on each end of the P-trap, leaving one of the nuts loosely attached so that the entire U-shaped piece does not fall off. If your P-trap is metal, this is where you will use the pipe wrench or channel-lock pliers. If your P-trap is PVC, the nuts are made to be screwed and unscrewed by hand.
    2. Move your bucket or bowl into place, carefully remove the nut you left loosely screwed, and then remove the P-trap. Empty the water and debris into the bucket or bowl. At this time, you may want to stuff the pipe with that small rag or put your piece of plastic over it and secure it with the rubber band to prevent unpleasant gasses from escaping.
    3. If you’ve purchased the PVC P-trap kit, wipe the threaded ends lightly with rubbing alcohol to remove any possible debris.
    4. Fit the new P-trap into place and screw the nuts hand-tight, but don’t overtighten, as this can damage the compression seals.
    5. Turn your faucet on and let the water run to test for leaks. If one or both ends of the P-trap show signs of leakage, turn off the faucet and tighten the nut(s) just a bit more where the leak is. Dry off the pipes and test again for leakage; you shouldn’t have any, but if you do, you probably should remove the new P-trap and make certain all fittings are clean and fit correctly. Once you’ve ensured all fittings are clean and all fit correctly, begin again at step 3.
