Many of us will just use our sinks without even thinking about it
It's only when something goes wrong that we'll realise just how much we take them for granted. That's where this handy guide from Aspect comes in - it's the ultimate FAQ you could have for common issues with your sink...
1. Why is my sink leaking?
Start by identifying where the leak is coming from - this should help you to work out the cause. A common problem will be a faulty drain line, loose connection, or simple wear and tear.
2. Why is my sink blocked?
Kitchen and bathroom sinks can easily end up blocked through regular use. Food, hair, soap and other debris will be the main culprits.
3. Why is my sink gurgling?
Gurgling noises typically come from blockages or even the extra air in the pipes.
4. Why is my sink gurgling when the toilet is flushed?
This means your pipes are failing to vent properly.
5. Why is my sink backing up?
If there is a blockage, it means it isn't draining properly as the water cannot flow freely.
6. Why is my sink turning yellow?
The minerals in the hard water can turn white sinks a yellowish colour.
