If your kitchen sink is starting to smell like the kitchen trash can, there might be something going on down there. A foul odor coming from the kitchen sink drain is a common issue, often caused by the buildup of food debris, grease, and bacteria. To quickly eliminate the smell, you can pour boiling water or a mixture of baking soda and vinegar down the sink drain. Additionally, you can drop some orange peels into your garbage disposal and run it to leave a refreshing orange-clean scent.

To prevent your kitchen drain from smelling worse than Oscar the Grouch’s home, we recommend that you stop pouring grease down the drain and use a strainer before pouring any leftover food into the sink. Regularly cleaning and performing preventive maintenance can keep your kitchen drains flowing smooth and clear.

But If a smell in your kitchen persists despite these efforts, it may be indicative of a more significant issue, so Call Radiant and we’ll stop by to identify and address the underlying cause.

The cost of moving plumbing in your kitchen can vary widely based on factors such as the scope of changes, distance of relocation, and your specific location. Based on our experience at Radiant Plumbing and Air across Texas in 2022, the average cost for basic kitchen plumbing relocation is typically between $1,500 and $3,500. For more extensive projects that involve significant changes or moving fixtures over longer distances, the cost can be considerably higher.

If you’re planning to remodel your kitchen or move a major appliance, don’t hesitate to call Radiant! Our expert plumbers have over 23 years of experience in both small and large-scale kitchen plumbing projects.

When dealing with frozen pipes, follow these steps for a safe and effective approach:
  1. Identify the frozen section by checking if only one faucet produces a trickle.
  2. Open both hot and cold faucets connected to the frozen pipe to relieve pressure.
  3. Apply gentle heat using a hairdryer, heat lamp, or electric heating pad. Start from the faucet end and work towards the blockage.
  4. Alternatively, wrap towels soaked in hot water around the frozen area.
  5. Avoid using open flames like torches or candles, as they pose a fire hazard.
  6. If these methods fail or a pipe bursts, seek professional assistance promptly.

To prevent kitchen pipes from freezing during winter:
  1. Insulate pipes in unheated areas with pipe insulation.
  2. Keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air circulation around pipes.
  3. In extremely cold weather, let faucets drip slightly to prevent freezing.
  4. Seal gaps or cracks in walls, windows, and doors to stop cold air from entering.
  5. Maintain a consistently warm indoor temperature, even when away from home.
  6. Insulate attics and crawl spaces.
  7. Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses, and close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs.
  8. Consider using heat tape on vulnerable pipes, following manufacturer instructions for safe installation..

By taking these preventive measures and knowing how to safely thaw frozen pipes, you can minimize the risk of pipe damage during cold weather.

Connecting a washing machine drain to the kitchen sink is generally not advisable due to differences in water flow rates and waste types. This setup can cause various problems, including overloading the sink drain, potential contamination from washing machine residues, and the risk of backups.

To prevent these issues, it is recommended to have a dedicated drain line for the washing machine. If you need help installing a washing machine in your home, Call Radiant, and our expert plumbers can come help install your new appliance quickly and accurately.

Yes, you can replace the kitchen sink drain yourself as it is a common DIY task. The time it takes to replace a kitchen sink drain can vary depending on factors such as your experience, the complexity of the plumbing, and any unexpected issues. On average, a straightforward drain replacement can take approximately 1 to 2 hours. However, if you are not familiar with plumbing tasks, it is recommended to allocate extra time and carefully follow the installation instructions. If you are unsure, Call Radiant Plumbing and our expert plumbers will be available to help you with unclogging, repairing, and replacing any kitchen pipes you may need assistance with!

We’re so glad you asked! Clearing a kitchen sink clog is actually quite simple if you have the right tools and knowledge. While minor clogs can sometimes be cleared with liquids that you can buy in the store, it is important to note that pouring any other substances down an already clogged drain is not recommended.

To effectively and efficiently clear a clog, we highly recommend considering the option of purchasing a plumber’s snake. This innovative and handy tool is specifically designed to tackle stubborn clogs and can make the process of unclogging your sink a breeze. If you’re interested in learning more about how to use a plumber’s snake, we have a helpful video tutorial available on YouTube. You can check it out here: how to use a plumber’s snake. By following our tips and utilizing the right tools, you’ll be able to handle any kitchen sink clog with ease and confidence.
