 the reasons for the clogging of the kitchen faucet and the maintenance method

The use of kitchen faucets is very frequent, and some small substances may easily cause the kitchen faucet to become clogged. The blockage of the kitchen faucet will cause the water flow to become small or even no water flow. At this time, we need to find out the cause of the blockage and repair it in time, otherwise, it will seriously affect the use. The following are the reasons for the clogging of the kitchen faucet and the maintenance method.

Cause of blockage

1. Water rust

Whether it is made of stainless steel or other materials, they will produce a certain amount of scale during use. Some of these scales are caused by the water quality itself, and some are caused by the use of unqualified faucets. Various reasons are easy. Blocking the faucet, causing the water flow to be poor.

2. Water quality issues

First of all, pay attention to the water blocking of the faucet. If the water flow of the faucet suddenly decreases and the water pressure is not enough, then this situation is probably due to water quality problems. The water contains sand, stone, rust, and other impurities. This blocking situation is the easiest and easy to handle.

3. There is a foreign body in the faucet

It is rare that a large foreign body in the faucet causes the faucet to be blocked, but it is possible.

Repair method

Generally, there is a connector that can be screwed on at the place where the faucet comes out. You only need to gently unscrew the connector in a counterclockwise direction (be careful not to use brute force to avoid damaging the faucet).

Disassemble the unscrewed faucet interface further. The faucet interface generally has a small part of parts inside, and these small parts are the important reasons for the clogging of the kitchen faucet. What is the reason, of course, it also needs to be unscrewed to see.

Remove the two layers of iron sand nets inside the faucet, and you will find that there are many tiny sand particles on the iron sand nets. These tiny sand particles block the sand nets and reduce the speed of water flow and the water output of the faucet. How to deal with these tiny sand particles? Generally, vinegar is used to soak the iron sand net with vinegar. After about an hour, a needle is used to pick out the larger sand particles, and then the surface of the iron sand net is exposed to flowing water. Flush to ensure that the finer sand particles inside can be washed away.

After ensuring that the lower water outlet can be unimpeded, first put the green rubber pad underneath, screw the green rubber part, and then put the two layers of iron sand nets in order to complete the splicing of the faucet interface.

After splicing the connector of the faucet, reinstall it on the faucet. At this time, turn on the switch of the kitchen faucet and you will find that the water flow of the faucet becomes larger, and the faucet no longer has the problem of clogging.
