Disposal Repair or Replacement?

A well-maintained garbage disposal should last several years. However, like all plumbing fixtures, it will wear out and need to be replaced. So, how can you tell if your disposal only needs minor repairs or needs to be replaced altogether?

The best way to determine this is by having one of our certified technicians take a look at it. We’ll run tests and complete thorough inspections. Most importantly, we’ll give you honest answers as to whether we can fix your current disposal.

But if a replacement is needed, we will recommend a reliable new model, install it, and test for completion. In short, we aim to provide a long-lasting solution. Similarly, if you’re looking for a new disposal, call us to learn more about InSinkErator professional grade disposals.

  • Keep the disposal turned on until all debris has been fully consumed.
  • Once the disposal is turned off, run hot water for a couple minutes to rinse away remaining food residue.
  • Avoid putting grease, fats, or vegetable scraps down the disposal.
  • Pour dish soap into the disposal weekly. Wait a few minutes, then rinse it with hot water while the disposal is turned off.
