Let Done Plumbing & Heating Help You With Your Noisy Sink

A hum, a rattle, a gurgle — these are some familiar sounds you’ll hear from your kitchen sink. Ideally, your sink should not make noise other than the gush of water from your faucet. However, for several reasons, you may find yourself with a “singing” sink. Fortunately, you can find the remedy to most of the sounds your faucet produces within your very home.

When it Hums

Hum is usually the result of water loss in your pipes. This sound usually indicates a leak somewhere in your plumbing system. It may also result from a leak in your plumbing fixtures, such as your toilet. If it’s a leak in your pipes, the water pressure inside and the ambient pressure around it will generate the humming sound. Because of the pressure difference, the area near the leak will experience vibrations as the pressure attempts to equalize. This gentle vibration is what leads to the hum.

The hum can be difficult to recognize on your own, but if you catch it from under the sink, call an expert. Our plumbers in Denver have the experience and the tools to detect and amplify the noise. The amplification will allow us to determine the problem and provide the best solution.

When it Rattles

Your choice of kitchen sink is essential both for aesthetic and practical reasons. Still, certain materials produce more noise than others. Stainless steel, for example, is a popular material for kitchen sinks. However, as anyone who has ever dropped a spoon can attest, stainless steel can get loud, fast. Sinks are no exception since the space between dual stainless steel sinks can create audible vibrations. The best way to reduce the noise is by getting a sink with spray coating or padding. You can also apply to expand foam in between the sinks to lessen the noise.

When it Gurgles

Gurgling noises are often the result of a clog in the drainpipe. You hear the gurgling because something blocks water flow in your drainpipes, creating air bubbles in the main drain. To better understand why your sink is humming or gurgling, call us. Let our plumbers diagnose the problem and apply the right solution so your sink stays quiet.

Let’s be honest: Nobody thinks about their plumbing and heating until there’s a problem.

What most people don’t realize is that most of those problems can be anticipated and often avoided with regular maintenance – usually at a far lower cost than a repair or replacement.

“This past week I had the need for a plumber and I reviewed the telephone book and selected from the advertisements your company to attend to the matter. The company sent Austin Steinbach to attend to and review the problem. He is a very knowledgeable young man who communicates well and does his work in a very thorough and professional manner. I was very satisfied with his service. Mr. Steinbech is a credit to your company. Very often in communities someone asks whether they are aware of a plumber or other technician that can be recommended. In this regard, I am comfortable in recommending Mr. Steinbech and your company. Thank you for the service rendered.”

“Quick & competent work done to high satisfaction. Darrell Begay provided quick service and very professional work when he came to install a new toilet seat. We had not been able to do the work ourselves, so it was a relief to have Darrell and Done Plumbing get here so quickly to take care of the task. We appreciate all Done as done for us”

“Just a note of thanks for being the Best plumbing and heating company. I have used you often and have been impressed every time. I called for a drain cleaning and was told a technician could come the same day. He arrived an hour ealier than was quoted, was very professional and did a great job at a very reasonable price with my coupon that he honored. I would never use another company and would recommend you to anybody that needs help. The technician that did such a great job was Austin, but every technician you have sent has been the best. Thanks again for such a wonderful company”

~ Karla W Golden, CO

“It was very professional, prompt & the technician explained many things well. Very happy throughout the whole process – from the customer service rep who answered the phone this morning to the technician explaining building codes to me.
