Garbage Disposal Installation

Garbage disposals are a great addition to any kitchen… If they work. Like any other kitchen appliances, garbage disposals can break down. If your kitchen has a garbage disposal, and your sink is starting to back up with dirty water and food remnants, you might have a big problem. You may be experiencing the following problems with your disposal:

  • Jammed grinder
  • Foreign objects lodged in the grinding plates
  • Misuse of disposal
  • Failing electrical connections
  • Excess food clogging the lines

Garbage Disposal Solutions

If you’re the kind of homeowner who likes to roll up your sleeves and dig deep to fix an issue yourself, think twice on this one. Garbage disposals can be tricky and dangerous devices to troubleshoot. Without the proper safety precautions, you might end up further damaging the disposal, or even harming yourself. Your local Newtown and Bucks County plumbing experts at McHale’s can help you diagnose and repair any garbage disposal issue, and will do it safely. A technician will inspect your disposal, determine the source of the issue and fix it, so you don’t need to risk a finger trying to make the repairs yourself.

The most common issue with garbage disposals is a clogged line or jammed object in the grinder. In these cases, we can safely remove the objects and restore the flow without further damaging the disposal or plumbing. There are some cases, however, where simply replacing the disposal with a new unit is the most cost-efficient way to go.

How to Avoid Problems In The Future

The best way to avoid garbage disposal problems is to avoid sending problem foods or materials down the drain. These include:

  • Grease
  • Fat
  • Potato Skins
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Stringy Vegetables Such As Celery
  • Whole Fruits Or Vegetables
  • Foreign Objects  Items Such As Silverware, Bones And Dirt

Here at McHale’s, we understand how frustrating a broken garbage disposal can be. If you’re experiencing problems with your sink, don’t try to fix this problem yourself. When you don’t properly identify and address the issue, you run the risk of further damaging the garbage disposal, or worse, yourself.
