Faucets & Sinks
Some of the most common reasons for a leaky faucet are usually either that an O-ring has deteriorated, an old cartridge, or sediment build up. A stem bolt is used to hold the handle of a faucet in place. This stem bolt includes a small disc attached to it, known as the O ring. The O ring can become loose or wear off over time therefore causing the faucet to leak. If your faucet contains a cartridge and is pretty old, there is a possibility that the cartridge has stopped performing properly, consequently causing leaks. A Cartridge is located inside the faucet itself and uses an up/down motion to regulate water flow and control temperature with a left/right motion. Another pretty common reason for a leaky faucets can be corrosion over time. Accumulation of water sediments can cause valves to corrode, causing leaking.
These repairs can be done by sometimes just replacing an old cartridge or O-ring. If your sink is leaking from underneath were your drain pipes are located you may want to read our article for Clogged Drains. We will go into more detail about that type of issue in that article.

Some different types of faucets to consider before installing.
Most of new kitchen faucets feature single-handed control levers and washer-less designs that rarely require maintenance. Additional features include brushed metallic finishes, detachable spray nozzles, or even push-button controls. You’ll find many options when choosing a new kitchen faucet. The best place to start the process is with your sink. In the past, most faucets were mounted directly to the sink deck, which had three or four predrilled holes to accommodate the faucets, spout, sprayer, and perhaps a liquid soap dispenser or an air gap for your dishwasher. Modern Kitchen faucets don’t always conform to this setup, with many of them designed to be installed in a single hole in the sink deck or in the countertop. If you plan to keep your old sink, look for a faucet that won’t leave empty holes in the deck. Generally, it’s best to replace like for like, but unfilled stainless sink holes can be filled with snap-in plugs or a soap dispenser. The two most basic kitchen faucet categories are single-handle and two-handle. Single-handle models are much more popular now because you can just adjust the water temperature easily with just one hand. Another difference is in the faucet body. Some faucets have taps and the spout mounted onto a faucet body so the spacing between the tailpiece is preset. Others called wide-spread faucets, have independent taps and spouts that can be configured however you please, as long as the tubes connecting the taps to the spouts reach. This type is best if you are installing the faucet in the countertop (a common way to go about it with new countertops such as solid surface, quartz, or granite). In the past, kitchen faucets almost always had a remote pull-out sprayer. The sprayer was attached to the faucet body with a hose directly below the mixing valve. While this type of sprayer is still fairly common, many faucets today have an integral pull-out spout that is very convenient and less prone to failure than the old-style sprayers.
