Garbage disposals are one of the most convenient appliances that no one thinks about. We often take for granted the idea that we can grind down scraps of food and send them down the drain with very little effort, especially when our disposal systems are in great working order. When your garbage disposal suddenly stops working, you need someone to fix it — fast.
Garbage Disposal Repairs
Garbage disposal systems are easy to use and difficult to repair on your own, so it’s important to call a professional if your disposal needs repairs. Whether it’s jammed, draining slowly or on but not working, Parker & Sons Plumbing has you covered. One of our licensed plumbers will come to assess the problem and repair your system if possible.
When to Replace Your Garbage Disposal
Because garbage disposals work for a long time without issues, a broken down disposal system could also mean that it’s time for garbage disposal replacement instead of repairs. You may need to replace your garbage disposal if you notice the following signs:
- It’s 10 or more years old
- You frequently have to press the reset button
- The system won’t turn on
- There are strange noises when the system runs
- There’s a persistent bad odor
- Water leaks for the disposal
If this description sounds a lot like your garbage disposal, even if it isn’t over 10 years old, consider replacing the system sooner rather than later. A new garbage disposal is not only more reliable when you need it, but it will also save you from future repair costs.
Garbage Disposal Installation
Most homes have a garbage disposal in the kitchen, but we can install a new system in your home if it doesn’t already have one. With a garbage disposal, dishes are an easier chore and you’re less likely to have a clog in your drain from accidental food scraps.
If you need a new or replacement garbage disposal installed, let Parker & Sons Plumbing take care of it for you. Our experienced team will help you pick the perfect system and install it quickly and correctly so you can begin using your new garbage disposal as fast as possible.
