Garbage Disposal Repair

Like most machines, disposal systems are liable to lose efficiency or effectiveness over time. However, our clients overcome this problem with our garbage disposal repair services. With Lion’s help, our loyal customers avoid the most common garbage disposal issues, including jams, poor griding, and low drainage. Now, you, too, can have our professionals inspect and maintain your systems.

For most repairs, a trained service expert will have to remove your unit and then disassemble it. In taking the machine apart, the service expert will examine the individual components of a disposal device for wear, jams, or other complications. After the inspection, your plumber will have to make a critical decision. For example, is garbage disposal repair a good choice for your system? Or would you be better off replacing the entire appliance?

Garbage Disposal Replacement Benefits Many Homes

When your garbage disposal unit fails, you suddenly feel a void in your home. Even if you’ve never thought about your disposal system, its unexpected failure can leave you feeling lost. Without its help, you’ll have to dump food waste in a bin and hope it doesn’t stink up the whole kitchen. It won’t be long before you realize that you need a new disposal.

Garbage disposal systems are indispensable elements of our kitchen space. Being without one is like having a kitchen without a range or refrigerator. Sure, it can be done, but do you want to live like that? Luckily, there’s no need to live life without a working garbage disposal system. No plumbing issue is too complicated when you have the professional team of plumbers from Lion Home Service on your side. Our service experts’ garbage disposal replacement service will help you make the right decision when choosing your next unit.

What To Look For In A New Garbage Disposal

When considering a garbage disposal replacement, there are a few essential factors to keep in mind. These include:

  • Feed Type. Generally speaking, disposal systems come in two different feed types: continuous and batch. As the name suggests, continuous systems operate as long as their wall switch is in the “On” position. Batch types require the manual insertion of a stopper into the system’s mouth before any food is processed.
  • Motor Size. Disposal motors range in power level from 1/3 to 1 horsepower. Most models fall in the 1/2 horsepower range, but higher horsepower usually provides better performance and less noise.
  • Chamber Size. Chamber size and motor size tend to correlate, with larger motors usually having large chambers. A larger chamber, of course, can handle higher volumes of food.
  • Noise. Garbage disposal systems do not have official noise ratings, so this detail may be difficult to quantify. However, larger, costly models generally run at a much quieter noise level.

Can I Perform A Garbage Disposal Installation Myself?

Garbage disposal units use a variety of mechanisms to grind, shred, and pulverize food. As you may have guessed, this makes working with them a dangerous job. As such, we do not recommend that the average homeowner deal with their system’s issues without expert help. Garbage disposal installation is something that only professionals should handle to ensure safety and future performance. When installing or replacing a garbage disposal system, it is best to seek out the help of an experienced plumber.

Maintaining Your Garbage Disposal

Here are some easy maintenance tips to keep your garbage disposal in good condition:

  • First, flush Your Drain: A cold water flush will help reduce food waste buildup.
  • Grind Ice Cubes: This process helps keep the blades clean and sharp.
  • Avoid Clogs: Eggshells, bones, starchy foods, and coffee grounds can clog the drain or disposal.

These simple tips won’t replace the regular maintenance done by a professional plumber. Still, they will help your disposal make it to your next service appointment intact.
