Anytime Plumber is a full-service local plumbing company that offers garbage disposal repair, replacement, and installation throughout Santa Cruz County.
- Garbage disposals are an important part of your kitchen plumbing and a malfunction can cause problems for the rest the system. Certain types of food can stick to the rotating blades, causing the slow or stop working over time, which is why occasional maintenance can be helpful. And of course, any silverware or other metal items that are accidentally dropped down the disposal can cause the blades to dull or break. Our professional staff is ready to handle any type of disposal repair, from the simple to the complex. Call us today to learn more!
Clogged garbage disposals
- When a garbage disposal is not working properly, it can cause clogs and damage other pipes and components of the plumbing system. A clogged disposal can easily cause a backed up sink, water pressure issues, or affect the performance of a dish washer. Whether you need standard maintenance or a disposal unclogged, we’re ready to handle the job.
Problems When Your Garbage Disposal Isn’t Working
One of the most common problems that you’ll encounter with a disposal unit is that it clogs or jams. As mentioned above, this can be caused by certain types of food or putting too much matter down the disposal at once. These types of issues are not major, but should be attended to as soon as possible so that they don’t turn into a bigger problem.
As with any other type of plumbing, leaks are always a potential trouble source with disposals. Again, this is typically an easy fix as it usually involves replacing a seal or tightening the sink flange. However, if the leak is coming from underneath the housing of the disposal, it may need to be replaced.
Another thing that can signal a possible issue is when the disposal starts operating much louder than it had previously. A grating sound usually means something other than food has caused it to jam--a situation that can cause permanent damage if not dealt with. (A note on safety: never stick your hand into the garbage disposal to remove a clog.)
