Garbage Disposal Repair & Replacement

We Can Repair, Replace or Install Your Garbage Disposal

Basic Troubleshooting

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

Still have a problem? Next check to make sure the disposal spins freely. Turn the unit off and use the supplied Allen or hex wrench to turn the motor from the bottom, center of the unit.

Still won’t spin? There may be something in the garbage disposal causing 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. When the garbage disposal leaks from the bottom of the unit, that’s the telltale sign the disposal has reached the end of its life and must be replaced.

Don’t Have a Garbage Disposal yet?

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.

Our Typical Installation

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

With 30 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.
