Americans love their garbage disposals. The handy devices can shred food that goes down drains and ensure it is disposed of safely and efficiently. Unfortunately, disposals can develop problems or stop working and are typically too complex for homeowners to repair. Since the appliances are tied into plumbing systems, it is best to leave the installation, repair, and replacement to skilled plumbers.

Our team of plumbers has experience with every type of disposal so they can quickly find the source of any problem and offer solutions. Technicians help clients choose the best new or replacement units for their needs, and they can provide tips on how to maintain units and reduce the chance of problems.

Benefits of Professional Installation

While some homeowners choose DIY garbage disposal installation, there are benefits to having professionals handle the projects. Disposal installation is one of many  Plumbing Services that professionals routinely provide. When plumbers install units, customers get:

  • Guaranteed quality:  Although disposals are sturdy and meant to work hard, they can develop issues. Expert installation ensures there will be no leaks and lessens the possibility of problems that can lead to breakdowns.
  • A faster process: Plumbers have done the same jobs many times and have the tools needed for quick, efficient installation, which minimizes customer inconvenience.

Plumbers Offer Maintenance Guidelines

According to Consumer Reports, just over half of Americans surveyed said their homes included disposals. Despite this fact, many residents have no idea how many things can damage the units. With that in mind, plumbers routinely educate customers about how to minimize the chances of problems.

They caution customers to:

  • Use cold water because hot water can melt fats and clog pipes.
  • Run water before and after using the disposal.
  • Avoid overfilling the disposal.
  • Avoid putting bleach or other harsh chemicals down units.
  • Avoid grinding bones, coffee grounds, and fibrous materials such as corn husks.
  • Never use their hands to pull items out of units.

Signs of Disposal Problems

Disposal problems can develop because units are worn out, but the most common damages are caused by misuse. Problems often occur because owners do not understand how their units operate and many do not realize how important it is to use water when operating their units.

A recent Washington Post article written by a plumbing expert explained it this way, “Imagine a giant ready-mix concrete truck filled with a slurry of sand, small rocks, and water. Drop the chute and discharge this mix into a 12-inch-diameter city sewer. If you don’t add a significant volume of clear water immediately after dumping the sand and gravel into the sewer pipe, the pipe will start to choke off. The clear water is needed to transport the sand and gravel to the end of the pipe.”

There are several indicators that point to the need to call a plumber for disposal repair or replacement:

  • An unpleasant odor
  • A humming motor with limited or no grinding
  • Clogs
  • Unusually loud noises
  • Pooled water in the sink area
  • Leaks forming under the unit
  • Disposal that will not switch on or stay on
  • Experts Offer Repair Services

While non-working disposal often seems beyond repair, plumbers can fix some problems. Technicians typically also provide customers with simple trouble-shooting tips they can try before calling for expert help.

For example, if a unit will not turn on, plumbers recommend that customers ensure it is turned on and then press the reset button located on the bottom of the unit. Owners should also check their breaker boxes and reset tripped circuits. Plumbers recommend that customers schedule a professional inspection before assuming their disposal is dead and must be replaced.

Professionals check for a range of issues and can often repair problems like jams in the unit or clogged pipes. During repair work, technicians work quickly and efficiently to minimize customer inconvenience. They also schedule work around clients’ needs.

Technicians Provide Replacement Disposal Services

When disposals are at the end of their life or are broken beyond repair, plumbers will suggest replacement. They are also likely to recommend replacing disposals that need to be reset often or require frequent repairs. Plumbers can help clients select new units that meet their needs.

For instance, technicians can suggest units that are especially quiet. They can provide models that have the horsepower needed for customers’ usage. Customers can even choose air-powered disposals that are safer than conventional models since they limit interaction with water.
