My faucet in the kitchen works 99% of the time but occasionally when you turn it on 0 water comes out. When this occurs the water still works in the bathroom, and in other apartments. (I’m the middle unit in a triplex)
This just started happening four days ago and I’ve lived here for six years. It’s happened maybe five times in the past four days. The plumber says it’s because the pipes are too narrow but I don’t think the pipes would’ve gotten drastically narrower suddenly four days ago.
I’ve experimented with turning on all the other faucets and it does not cause this cut off to happen. I really can’t figure out when it will cutoff, it doesn’t seem tied to anything going on.
The plumber says it’s unfixable unless we rip up and replace the whole system. I just don’t get how this problem could have not been happening at all and now it’s a notable disruption all of a sudden. Could there be something else causing it? He didn’t check on anything, and I’ve seen things about switches getting triggered by accident or converters… could it be one of those things, or something else?
