Frequently Asked Sink & Disposal Questions
Do I need a plumber to replace a garbage disposal?
Absolutely. Disposals work with your drain line system and electrical systems, and they contain many dangerous moving components. A mistake in installation can be obnoxious and costly to fix at best, and dangerous at worst.
How long does a typical garbage disposal last?
Modern garbage disposals are typically rated to last between 8 and 15 years, depending on the quality of the product and how well it is maintained. To make sure your disposal lasts as long as possible, avoid placing tough or fibrous materials like bone or hard vegetables into the disposal. Also never put grease or cooking fat into a disposal!
How do you know if your garbage disposal is broken?
A properly operating disposal should be reasonably quiet (no grinding, sputtering, or irregular clanking) and should have little issue processing food and draining. If yours has trouble with any of these things, it’s time to call for repair.
Why does my garbage disposal leak from the bottom?
A leak from the bottom indicates a compromised seal within the disposal itself. These seals are simple to repair and replace, provided you get service before the leak causes further harm to the system.
