Follow the helpful hints and tips related to the kitchen.

If your dishwasher runs but won’t drain, there are several things that could be going wrong. If it sounds like a motor is running during the drain cycle, it could be a broken impeller, which pushes water into the drain line.

If your ice maker is suffering from the symptoms of global warming (small or hollow, watery cubes) or a coming ice age (huge slabs of ice, icicles hanging from the unit), don’t blame the weather—blame the water line!

Homeowners often wonder whether it's better to repair or replace a malfunctioning faucet. The best answer is: it depends.

As everyone knows, no sink puts up with more grease and grime than the kitchen sink—but keeping it shiny doesn't have to be a big chore. Baking soda mixed with dishwashing liquid applied daily, allowed to sit for 10 minutes and rinsed with hot water should keep it clean without adding too much elbow grease!

Garbage disposal not working? Before you buy a new one or call a plumber, see if the unit has a red reset button on the bottom.

A garbage disposal is a handy and convenient tool for cleaning up dishes after a meal. Don’t get too greedy with what you think it can handle.

There are specific requirements for hooking up your dishwasher drain to the sink, and codes governing the right procedure can differ from place to place.

Here are some tips that will help you avoid a holiday-related plumbing problem!

Even though we’ve been enjoying warm fall temperatures, winter is still just around the corner! Make sure your home’s plumbing is ready for the dip in temperatures with these easy tips.

Want to keep your garbage disposal smelling clean without using any harsh chemicals? Grind up pieces of lemon and ice cubes in the disposal to clear any debris while leaving a fresh, clean scent.
