What if the pull-out kitchen faucet in Singapore leaks?


After some time of using it, if a pull-out kitchen faucet in Singapore starts leaking, there is no need to worry. Our Singapore plumbing professionals can easily replace the pull-out hose which most commonly generates the leak, which is not an expensive piece to buy at all. 
 

What if the kitchen faucet sprayer is difficult to pull or place back in?


If the kitchen faucet sprayer is difficult to pull or place back in, there is no need to disassemble the faucet above or under the sink. 

Usually, the kitchen pull-out faucets have a weight in the center of the spray hose, which is the hose seen when the faucet is pulled out.

What needs to be done by our plumbers in Singapore is to look under the sink and locate the spray hose. On that hose, there is a small weight.

It is commonly connected to the hose with a couple of screws. By utilizing a Philips or a straight screwdriver, the weight to the kitchen faucet hose will be moved, adjusted or added.

If there is no spray hose weight for the kitchen faucet, you can acquire one from a home improvement store.

After you have bought the weight, our plumber will measure around 14 inches down on the spray hose from the faucet bottom. 

Then, by using a screwdriver, the two parts of the weight will be attached on the hose. They are screwed tightly and then the kitchen sink pull-out will be tested if it retracts and pulls.
