How Do Garbage Disposals Work?

Garbage disposals are small electrically powered appliances attached to the sink and your home’s plumbing wastewater pipes. Garbage disposals use an electrical motor to grind food waste into sludgy particles small enough to exit your home through the gray waste plumbing system. Scraps of food left over from meals make up 10 to 20% of a typical household’s waste. It's no wonder garbage disposals have quickly become one of the most essential appliances in the kitchen.

Proper garbage disposal installation requires both skilled electrical and plumbing work. If a garbage disposal is installed incorrectly, it can cause many problems, including clogs and leaks. This can cause damage to floors and cabinetry and unpleasant odors. If your garbage disposal needs immediate attention, call our Morganton plumbing professionals.

Common Issues with Garbage Disposals

At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we have been repairing and installing garbage disposals for years. Our Morganton plumbers know much you rely on your garbage disposal, which is why we always strive to provide prompt, reliable services. We are called the most punctual plumbers for nothing. Our team will always arrive on schedule or we pay you $5 for every minute that we are delayed.

Common garbage disposal problems we see are:

  • Disposal not running when turned on
  • Garbage disposal turning on but doesn’t run well or get rid of food
  • Leaking water into the cabinet
  • The drain backing up or running slowly
  • Persistent odors

In addition to calling us for obvious issues, it is also important to notify us if the garbage disposal is just operating in a diminished capacity. In fact, it is even more urgent, since you could end up with drain problems or septic failure if you just ignore the problem and continue using it. Our plumbers offer guaranteed repairs, so you can be sure that if our garbage disposal repair fails within two years, we’ll come back and fix the problem again at no cost to you.

Prevent Problems with Maintenance

If you’ve ever lived in an older home that doesn’t have a garbage disposal, you can attest to how useful this item really is. However, just like any other mechanical equipment, your garbage disposal needs proper care to continue working as efficiently as possible.

Here are some tips for keeping your garbage disposal running smoothly:

  • Avoid putting items that may cause a clog such as eggshells, coffee grounds, oils, fats, and grease
  • Use cold water when running the disposal
  • Never use bleach or drain cleaners for clog removal as this can damage the pipes
  • Clean your garbage disposal with dish soap, baking soda, and vinegar
  • Remove odors by grinding ice cubes with orange or lemon wedges

Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is available for all your garbage disposal needs. Whether the equipment got jammed or not turning on at all, just call us and we'll show up to your location right away to solve your issue.
