Garbage Disposal Repair & Replacement

We Can Repair, Replace or Install Your Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal can make a nice addition to your kitchen. Although there are certainly people who choose not to have one, others cannot imagine having to work in a kitchen without one. If you have a problem with your garbage disposal the first things to check are the circuit breakers – both on the disposal (typically on the bottom) and in your electric panel.

If still having a problem, next check to make sure the disposal spins freely by turning the unit off and using the supplied Allen or hex wrench to turn the motor from the bottom, center of the unit. If it will not spin, there may be something in the garbage disposal that has caused it to seize up. Again, with the power off, reach into the disposal and carefully feel for problems. If you’re not comfortable with any of this and would like help, just give us a call. If the disposal is leaking from the bottom of the unit, that’s the telltale sign the disposal has reached the end of its life and must be replaced.

If you don’t have an existing garbage disposal and would like to have one installed the first step is to have an electrician run a dedicated circuit with a switch to your sink area. That way when the plumber installs the disposal, he can make all the final connections and test it.

Insinkerator Badger 5 Garbage Disposal

Insinkerator Badger 5 Garbage Disposal

We typically install an Insinkerator Badger 5 disposal. It’s a 1/2 horsepower disposal that is one of the most commonly installed garbage disposals in our area. If you’re interested in a upgraded, more powerful, more efficient, and quieter model then one of the Insinkerator Evolution series disposals may be the model for you. There’s even a model which injects enzymes into the disposal when grinding waste for those who are on a septic system.

With more than 25 years of experience in the business, we’ve seen it all so we can recommend the best garbage disposal for your needs. We’ve been a family-owned business since 1991 and have earned a reputation as an honest and reliable plumbing company that can be trusted to complete any job professionally and efficiently, no matter how large or small.
