PLUMBING – Garbage Disposals

What Does A Garbage Disposal Do?

A garbage disposal is a machine that is primarily used to shred food waste into super small pieces that won’t clog pipes. It’s smart to run your disposal regularly and to keep it clean. And it’s important to always run your disposal with running cold water, which solidifies any grease or oils so they can be grounded too.


How Long Will My Garbage Disposal Last

If your garbage disposer stops working, you might wonder if you need to replace it. On average, your garbage disposal should last you a good number of years before the blades will wear down or the motor burns out. Depending on when you installed it, modern garbage disposals are much more long-lasting than older ones, however, a garbage disposal typically lasts anywhere from 8 – 12 years.

5 Indications Letting You Know It May Be Time For A Disposal Replacement: 

  • It clogs often (either the blades are getting dull or you need a larger disposal)
  • You have to press the RESET button often
  • Food takes longer and longer to grind
  • The unit is leaky
  • The unit is making loud noises
