Garbage Disposal Repair vs. Garbage Disposal Replacement
Your garbage disposal has been designed to make cleanup in the kitchen easier for the entire family. When the system makes the task a chore instead of easy, however, you may need repairs or a replacement to rectify the problem. A simple problem requires nothing more than a repair. For example, a humming noise without operation indicates a probable clog in the system. This can be removed quite easily by a professional from General Plumbing.
On the other hand, if a repair is simply too expensive or will not suffice, one of our experienced plumbing technicians may recommend replacing the entire system. This could save you more money in the long run, especially if your unit continues to break down. If your garbage disposal continues breaking down after having the issue fixed once before, consider investing in a replacement model for your kitchen. It will make waste disposal much easier for you and your family.
New Garbage Disposal Installation
Garbage disposal installations are straightforward — however, even the simplest installation can get a bit tricky. These jobs should always be performed by a professional. Your plumbing technician will begin by turning off your electricity, loosening the bolts, and removing your old disposal. Then, he or she will install the new drain assembly and wiring. The entire process should take no more than a couple hours. Installation costs run between $45 and $250 — this depends on what type of unit you choose, as well as your existing warranty. Service call fees vary according to geographic region and time of day.

Garbage Disposal Tips
If you have a garbage disposal, you know how wonderful the appliance is for cleanup in the kitchen. It makes most household duties a bit less stressful. If not operated or maintained properly, however, the entire disposal system will break down and wreak havoc on your plumbing. A block or a clog are some of the most common problems a garbage disposal experiences.
For starters, be sure to keep the garbage disposal clean. Pour a bit of dish soap inside and let the disposal run for a minute or two while cold water washes through. This will remove any crud beginning to build up. Next, frequent use of the disposal prevents rust and corrosion from forming in the pipes. Finally, do not grind down glass, plastic, or even paper in the garbage disposal. These items have a tendency to clog the pipes or ruin the interior of the system. Using the disposal on any of them will have catastrophic results.
