Garbage Disposal Repair
It may be difficult to see the signs as they accrue, but once your garbage disposal hits a wall, you notice it right away, and something needs to be done as soon as possible.
Some common problems we see include:
- A jammed or clogged garbage disposal - This is noticed if your sink drains too slowly. Clogged drains from faulty garbage disposals can also cause dirty water to backflow into your sink.
- Worn down blades – If it’s having trouble shredding the items you drop in, the blades may need to be checked. We’ll inspect your unit and determine if the blades need to be replaced.
- Broken blades -Blades can completely break off, and you will hear a rattling sound when you turn it on. We’ll help you find the right parts to get your disposal running like new again.
- Garbage disposal leaks - A leaking unit is another common garbage disposal problem. We will inspect your unit to diagnose the problem, and then carry out the best method of repair.
Installation & Replacement
Most garbage disposals will last about 10 years with proper usage and care. So if your garbage disposal won’t run, runs slowly, or has other problems, it’s sometimes more cost-effective to install a new one. Our master plumbers are more than capable of installing your system right the first time around.
