Garbage Disposal Services from Will Fix It

Are you tired of dealing with unpleasant odors and a clogged kitchen sink? If so, it may be time to consider installing a garbage disposal. A garbage disposal can make your kitchen more efficient, hygienic, and eco-friendly, while also saving you time and money on plumbing repairs. At Will Fix It, we offer affordable garbage disposal installation and reliable service.

Signs You Need a New Garbage Disposal Installed

With proper maintenance, garbage disposals generally have lifespans of 10 to 15 years. There are a few signs that can indicate that you may need a new garbage disposal:

  • Clogging – your garbage disposal is frequently or increasingly clogged.
  • Foul odors – you notice odors coming from the disposal, even after a thorough clean.
  • Leaks – water or other liquids are coming from the unit.
  • Noises – rattling or grinding noises coming from the disposal.

Which Garbage Disposal Is Best?

There are two main types of garbage disposals: continuous feed and batch feed. Continuous feed garbage disposals are the most common type and are designed to operate continuously while running water. They allow you to add food waste to the disposal while it’s running. Batch feed garbage disposals, require you to load food waste into the disposal and then activate it with a stopper. Generally considered safer than continuous feed disposals, they may not be as efficient for larger households that generate a lot of food waste.

Garbage disposal horsepower is another important factor to consider when choosing a disposal. Higher horsepower disposals can handle tougher food waste and reduce the risk of clogs.

Garbage disposals can be hardwired or plugged into an electrical outlet. Hardwired disposals require professional installation and are more permanent. Plug-in disposals are easier to install and can be moved or replaced more easily.

Other factors to consider when choosing a garbage disposal include motor power, noise level, component materials, and grinding capacity.

Our expert plumbers can recommend the best garbage disposal for your needs and provide efficient installation services to ensure it’s up and running quickly.

How to Install a Garbage Disposal?

Installing a garbage disposal involves blades, electric work, and plumbing. While getting a garbage disposal installation kit and installing a unit yourself might be tempting, this mix of water and electrical work can be risky—done incorrectly, it can cause issues such as leaks or electrical issues down the line. If you’re unsure or uncomfortable with the process, we recommend contacting Will Fix It to seek the assistance of a professional plumber.
