Dependable Garbage Disposal Services

Whether you’re looking to add a new garbage disposal to your kitchen, or you need a garbage disposal replacement for your current unit, we follow a smooth and streamlined process to deliver the results you need.

Service Overview

The garbage disposal installation process can be complex since it involves components of your plumbing system and electrical system. Our expert technicians will follow a step-by-step process that includes preparing the installation area, installing the disposal unit, connecting required drain pipes, connecting the electrical wiring, and testing the unit to make sure it’s running smoothly.

Our Process

The exact process that we follow may vary depending on a variety of factors, but here is the general process we follow when installing a garbage disposal in your kitchen.

Preparation: We will prepare the area where we will be installing the new garbage disposal by removing any fixtures or appliances and turning off the power at the circuit breaker for safety purposes.

Removing the Old Disposal (if applicable): For garbage disposal replacement, we’ll need to remove your current garbage disposal. This involves disconnecting the power and plumbing connections to the current unit and then removing it from the mounting assembly and disconnecting it from the sink drain and dishwasher. We will also dispose of your old unit according to the local regulations.

Preparing the Mounting Assembly: Once the area is clear, we will install the mounting assembly onto the underside of the sink by following all of the steps included in the manufacturer’s instructions.

Installing the Disposal Unit: We will place the garbage disposal unit onto the mounting assembly and then lock it into place before securing it with the necessary hardware, so it’s firmly attached.

Connecting Drain Pipes: We’ll connect the drain pipes to your disposal unit, including the discharge tube from the sink drain and the dishwasher drain hose if you have a dishwasher. Once everything is in place, we will tighten the pipe connections so they are watertight.

Connecting Electrical Wiring:  If your new garbage disposal requires electrical wiring, we will connect the supply wires to the disposal unit’s electrical junction box to ensure it has power and is ready to go.

Testing Your New Disposal: Once the installation is complete, we will turn the power back on at the circuit breaker and test the operation of the garbage disposal unit. This typically involves running cold water into the sink and turning on the disposal unit to make sure it’s functioning properly.

Benefits of Our Drain Cleaning Services

Installing a new garbage disposal unit can offer several benefits for homeowners, especially when you work with an industry leader like our team at The Plumber Heating & Cooling. A new garbage disposal helps improve convenience, cleanliness, and efficiency in the kitchen. Here are some of the key advantages:

Efficient Food Waste Disposal

A new garbage disposal unit can efficiently grind and dispose of food waste, allowing you to quickly and easily get rid of leftovers, peels, scraps, and other organic materials. This reduces the amount of food waste that ends up in your trash bin.

Improved Kitchen Hygiene

By disposing of food waste down the garbage disposal instead of allowing it to accumulate in the trash, you can maintain a cleaner and more hygienic kitchen. This helps to reduce the risk of pests, such as insects and rodents and minimizes unpleasant odors.

Reduced Clogs and Blockages

Garbage disposals help to prevent clogs and blockages in your kitchen sink and plumbing system by grinding food waste into smaller particles that can be easily flushed away with water. This reduces the risk of drain backups and pipe blockages, saving you time and money.

Convenience and Time Savings

Having a garbage disposal installed in your kitchen sink makes meal cleanup faster and more convenient. Instead of scraping food scraps into the trash bin or compost pile, you can simply rinse them down the disposal with water, saving time and effort in the kitchen.

Environmental Benefits

Using a garbage disposal to dispose of food waste can have environmental benefits by reducing the amount of organic material sent to landfills. Food waste in landfills produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas, but that’s not an issue with a garbage disposal in your kitchen.

Odor Control

Food waste that accumulates in trash bins can produce unpleasant odors, especially during a hot summer day. When you get rid of food waste down the garbage disposal, you can help control odors in your kitchen and maintain a fresher-smelling living space.

Increased Home Value

Installing a garbage disposal can increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. Many homebuyers view garbage disposals as desirable features that add convenience and functionality to the kitchen.

Do I need a garbage disposal?

While garbage disposals are not essential kitchen appliances, they can offer several benefits, including efficient food waste disposal, improved kitchen hygiene, reduced clogs and blockages, and convenience.

What types of food waste can I put in a garbage disposal?

Garbage disposals are designed for grinding most types of food waste, including fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, small bones, and non-fibrous food items. But it’s important to avoid putting items such as grease, oil, fibrous foods (e.g., celery, corn husks), and large bones down the disposal to prevent clogs and damage.

Can I install a garbage disposal myself, or do I need a professional plumber?

Since garbage disposal installation includes elements of both your electrical system and plumbing system, it’s always best to trust a professional plumber to have it installed safely and correctly.

How long does it take to install a garbage disposal?

The time required to install a garbage disposal depends on various factors, including the complexity of the installation, the condition of existing plumbing and electrical systems, and the type of disposal unit being installed. On average, professional installation can typically be completed in a few hours.

What size garbage disposal do I need for my kitchen sink?

Garbage disposals come in different sizes and horsepower ratings to accommodate various kitchen sink configurations and household needs. The size of the disposal unit you need will depend on factors such as the size of your sink, the amount of food waste generated, and your budget. We will work with you to determine the ideal size for your needs.

How do I maintain and care for my garbage disposal?

Some good tips include:
– Avoiding putting certain items down the disposal (e.g., grease, fibrous foods)
– Regularly running cold water while using the disposal
– Periodically cleaning and deodorizing the unit
– Scheduling professional maintenance as needed

What should I do if my garbage disposal is not working correctly?

If you encounter issues with your garbage disposal, such as unusual noises, slow draining, or complete failure to operate, it’s best to avoid using the unit and contact us so we can inspect your garbage disposal and make the necessary repairs.
