The following simple tips are designed to help keep the plumbing in your kitchen operating properly:
Never pour grease down the drain. Always wipe away extra grease with a paper towel before washing pots and pans in the sink.
Be aware of what you put down your garbage disposal. Stringy foods like celery and banana peels or starchy foods like rice can cause problems with your disposal and clog your drain.
To keep food scum at bay, apply an enzyme-based drain maintenance product like Roto-Rooter Pipe Shield down drains once a month. Pipe Shield is designed to keep food and grease from building up, which will cause clogs and drainage issues.
Run cold water down the drain before, during and after using the garbage disposal. The added water helps to flush the waste through your drain line and out into the municipal sewer pipes.

Your instruction manual or a quick internet search can help you easily identify the type of faucet you have.
To fix a leaking faucet – you must:
Disassemble the diverter and flush it out to make sure there isn't any debris preventing the disk, handle or button from closing.
Shut off the hot and cold water to the faucet before working on the faucet body
For any calcium and mineral deposits that might be causing leaks, soak the parts in vinegar overnight then clean with a soft brush to remove the buildup.
Remove and replace any worn or broken rubber O-rings or seals
All of these tips can help to fix your faucet leak and ultimately improve your plumbing’s performance while saving you money on your utility bills. Drips and leaks waste water and cause higher water and sewer bills. Leaks on the hot water side can force your water heater to work harder and cost you more in electricity or gas.
