Do you need Garbage Disposal Repair or Installation?

One of the important appliances in every kitchen is the garbage disposal, and it is necessary that it is cared for properly. When you start to have trouble, TYCO Plumbing is just a phone call away. Here are some tips on taking care of your garbage disposal.

The major role of every garbage disposal is to liquefy any food remnant, flush it down the drain, and eliminate the odor. This can cut down the amount of smelly waste in your trash container. This is a better option than having to make a daily trip to the trash box or trash dumpster. Over time, the blades used in the garbage disposal will become dull. Many people do not know you can extend the lifespan of the disposal by not pouring grease down the drain.  Grease sticks to the blades and dulls them. If you can’t avoid adding grease, then  use hot water to flush out the grease. You can also extend the life of your appliance by not sticking large objects into the drain like  chicken bones, utensils, or large chunks of food.

Leaking Garbage Disposal

Sometimes, you may have a leaky garbage disposal and not know it until a unwanted mess occurs. It is important to understand how to prevent this and find lasting solutions to repair the leaking garbage disposal. Leaking occurs at many different areas of the appliance, and it is most important to know where the leak is coming from before attempting any repairs. Mostly, the garbage disposal leakage occurs at the sink flange, the sink drainpipe or the disk washer connection. When the leakages occur at the sink flange, turning off the garbage disposal would be the best solution and remove the garbage disposal from the mounting flange. If the mounting bolts loose, then tighten them up immediately to stop the leakages. Sometimes the problem might be from the faulty plumber’s putty.

Garbage Disposal Installation

The following are some of the top benefits you stand to gain from having a garbage disposal installation in your home.

  1. Nice smelling kitchen environment:
    Instead of storing or keeping the food remnants in your garbage can, the garbage disposal will grind it up, and flush it through the pipes.
  2. It saves your money:
    Garbage Disposals help prevent drain clogs.
  3. Maintain lighter trash:
    By placing food down your garbage disposal, you will reduce the risk of your garbage bags breaking and making a unwanted mess.
  4. Reduces the leaks on the pipes:
    Garbage disposal installation will help in reducing the pressure and weight on your pipes. Using this appliance will reduce the pressure, and possibly prevents the pipes from leaking.
  5. Easy to clean:
    In a snap, you can be done with cleaning. The garbage disposal appliance will ground organic materials in a less then a minute. Make sure your run the disposal with running water!
