Garbage Disposal Installation

The process of installing a garbage disposal is often a relatively simple job, but occasionally the plumbing under the sink may need to be retrofitted to accommodate the installation. Roto-Rooter pros arrive at the job site with every part and tool necessary to properly install your new garbage disposal, no matter what unexpected circumstances may arise.

Garbage Disposal Repair

If you are having problems with your garbage disposal, repairing it may be a very quick fix. If you are handy, there are a few steps you can take to fix the system yourself.

1.

Turn off the electric circuit breaker for your kitchen, and test the disposal by flipping the on-switch to ensure the disposal is not receiving power.

2.

After ensuring the disposal is powered off, use a flashlight and a pair of needle nose pliers to look into the top of the disposal and check for obstructions. If there is an obstruction in the disposal, use the pliers to remove it. Common obstructions are utensils, bottle caps, and plastic items.

3.

Once you have removed the obstruction, turn on the electric circuit breaker, run water in the sink, and flip the on switch to see if the disposal runs properly.

This quick fix may not always solve the problem, but it is often worth a try.

Sometimes a more complicated repair is necessary, possibly requiring the removal or replacement of plumbing fittings associated with the garbage disposal unit. Whether the problem is large or small, the expert technicians at Roto-Rooter will make short work of the problem so you can have your kitchen back in running order.
