Protect Your Garbage Disposal from Repairs

Did you know that the majority of service calls our contractors respond to were preventable? While there are some issues that creep up out of the blue, most garbage disposal failures can be directly attributed to how the appliance is operated on a daily basis.

For example, is your kitchen sink backing up regularly? Sometimes this happens as the garbage disposal fills up, but as soon as you turn the disposal on the problem should disappear. If this isn’t happening, it could be that there is a blockage somewhere in the drain or the pipe. Blockages usually form because too much food is being disposed of at one time or because substances like oil, grease, and fat are being poured into the disposal.

Another common problem is that food particles or foreign matter like coins, utensils, bread ties, food wrappers, etc., get stuck in between and around the blades of the disposal. This can make operating the disposal difficult or impossible.

You can avoid these types of problems by being careful about what you put in the disposal and how much food waste you grind up at one time.

Garbage Disposal Replacement

Most of the service calls our licensed, Hermosa Beach plumbers respond to are fixable. However, there are times when the cost to repair may be quite a bit more than it costs to replace the unit. And, other times, there may be nothing a plumber can do to save the appliance. If you need a new garbage disposal, we’ll help you sort through the available brands, explain the differences between continuous feed and batch feed disposals, help you understand what horsepower means, and provide you with professional installation.
