Installation of New Blanco Silgranit Kitchen Sink In Edmonton

Kitchen Sink and Faucet Installations can be a difficult thing to plan for, or to DIY and get it right. Selecting the correct setup can be confusing for homeowners or even contractors building homes or renovating a kitchen sometimes. Everybody loves Ikea and there a vast selection of plumbing hardware, sinks, and shower accessories but things do not always go according to plan because of lack of proper information.

In the first picture you see an Ikea sink but there is no hole for the faucet. The customer had already cut the counter top out using the supplied template. What they did not realize when they purchased it was this sink was made for a wall mount or countertop mounted kitchen faucet.

Also without any countertop to drill a proper hole through for the new faucet to drop in, there would be problems shortly after installation. The faucet would be wobbly from lack of stability, the sink could bend or end up misshapen, can also cause leaks through the back of the sink from the seal being repeatedly lifted when the faucet is moved or used. Always try to avoid tightening the mounting hardware down directly on the stainless steel sink.

With some quick thinking, we were able to find a solution for this customer and picked them out a Blanco Silgranite kitchen sink that fit the cutout and worked great after a little trimming with the jigsaw. In the end, they were very pleased with the result and, we were still able to use the faucet they supplied and hooked up their dishwasher too.

Get Ready For Spring

Coming into Spring, there are a couple of important plumbing issues that can arise. Outside taps and sump pumps are usually the most common things to go faulty over the winter due to the extreme temperatures that Edmonton and surrounding areas face.

Outside Hosebibs
We see a lot of jobs where a client has forgotten to remove the hose from the outside tap before the freezing temperatures roll in for the winter. There is also the issue of a small drip from the tap that freezes and it will usually burst the faucet or ruin the components inside the valve body. This can cause major damage inside the home, mold or possibly damage outside the home from ice buildup or water damage.

Sump Pump Failure

The most common time for a sump pump to fail is the beginning of spring when all the snow and ice melts and the ground is saturated. Due to the high volume of ground water, the sump pump is forced to pump more frequently and this can cause the motor to wear out.

Another issue is when the pump is not used all winter, the first time its turned back on it can suffer malfunctions or cracked seals. A high-quality sump pump is an excellent investment as over the life of the pump you will generally see fewer issues. All sump pumps should have a backup sump pump to ensure protection in case of the primary pump experiencing issues. High water alarms are also an excellent early warning system and should be fitted wherever possible.
