Garbage Disposals

May 26, 2020

What does a garbage disposal do?

Garbage disposals are installed under kitchen sinks. Food waste is pushed down the kitchen sink drain and collected in a basin. When you turn the garbage disposal on the blades will grind the food waste into small enough pieces to travel through pipes and out of the building. Garbage disposals provide a more environmentally friendly way to dispose of food waste.

How long does a typical garbage disposal last?

With proper care, a garbage disposal can last 15years. On average, a disposal will need to be replaced every 8-15 years. The more you use a disposal and harder you work it, the more often it will likely need to be replaced.

What is the best garbage disposal?

  • For the money, you can't beat an Insinkerator disposal. The provide years of quiet and powerful operation. A favorite is the Evolution Compact model.
  • Our certified and licensed plumbers have experience with many makes and models of garbage disposals including, but not limited to:
  1. InSinkErator Badger
  2. InSinkErator Evolution
  3. Moen

  5. Whirlpool

How do I fix my garbage disposal?

  • It really depends on what's wrong with it. If the disposal is jammed, many have a hex shaped hole in the bottom of the shaft (on the bottom of the disposal) that will allow you to manually rotate the disposal blades to free any blockage.
  • If the motor needs repairs or the unit is leaking internally you are much better off replacing the entire disposal.
