Garbage Disposal Repair & Replacement


Garbage disposals make cleaning up the dishes and taking care of daily kitchen tasks extremely easy. Using one may be second nature to you, like switching the water from filtered to tap, but just like your water filter, garbage disposals need care and attention to perform their best. In the worst cases, your garbage disposal may be worn or damaged beyond repair, in which case replacement will be required. Luckily there are some warning signs you can look for that will alert you when it is time to seek professional plumbing repair.

Common Warning Signs of Garbage Disposal Repair

No Noise

Make no mistake, a garbage disposal that runs quietly is exactly what you hope for as a homeowner, the issue arises when your disposal makes no noise at all. Complete silence means that the disposal has either lost power, needs to be reset, or it is beyond repair and needs to be replaced.


If your garbage disposal is leaking, you may not even know until you look under the sink and see a slow drip coming off the unit or a puddle underneath it. A leaking disposal could signify that a seal is in need of replacement, or it could be a sign of a much deeper issue like a cracked casing or a component that was not installed correctly.

Slow Draining

If you have given your garbage disposal plenty of time to run and drain, and you are still looking at a sink full of water then you may be dealing with a clogged drain line. One thing to remember with a clogged drain line is to never use a chemical drain cleaner, which can damage the unit. The best solution is to use white vinegar and baking soda which should clear the line without damaging any major components. If that solution still yields no results, give our team a call and we will be able to manually clear the line and get your garbage disposal back in working order.
