Garbage Disposal Installation

Is your garbage disposal jammed? Leaking? Or you just need one installed? Call us for expert advice and further troubleshooting. If a plumber is needed we can arrange a time that is best for you.

Types of Disposals:

Continuous feed models allow for food to be continuously feed in once started.

The other option is a batch feed model. These models are designed to place all food in the disposal before starting. The units are specially designed with a cover over the opening that once twisted allows magnets in the cover to align with magnets in the unit causing it to start. Batch feed units are much quieter because of the cover and much safer than continuous feed disposals. The cover over the unit during operation protects foreign objects from falling in.

Things not to dispose:

•    Glass, plastic, metal or even paper.
•    Anything combustible.
•    Cigarette butts
•    Do not pour grease, oil or fat into your garbage disposal or drain. Grease will slowly accumulate and impede your garbage disposal’s grinding ability as well as clog drains.
•    Don’t use hot water
•    Cornhusks, celery stalks, onionskins, and artichokes.  Fibers from these can jam the garbage disposal.
•    Excessive amounts of potato peels
•    Don’t put expandable foods into your garbage disposal. Like pasta or rice.
•    Don’t grind bones
•    Coffee grounds.
•    Don’t use harsh chemicals or drain cleaners. They can damage blades and pipes.

To rid odors:

Pour vinegar down your disposal. You can even freeze vinegar into ice cubes and let your disposal grind them.
Lemon wedges or orange peels
