Garbage Disposal Installation Is Quick & Easy With Steele Plumbing

A garbage disposal can reduce the amount of food waste taking up space in your trash bags, which means you won’t have to buy them as frequently. (Hello $$ savings!) It also means you won’t have to worry so much about raccoons, opossums, and other animals getting into your trash can at night.

But garbage disposals can be problematic when they fail due to a clog, a malfunction, or poor installation, which means you’re back to your nightly ritual of scooping up potato peels and other food waste in the sink, and dripping water all the way to the trash can.

Those of us here at Steele Plumbing want to make sure you enjoy the benefits of having a garbage disposal, without the troubles that can come with them when things aren’t quite right. That’s why we install and service garbage disposals of all kinds. Is it time to upgrade? Just let us know how long you’d like your garbage disposal to last and we’ll recommend the best product for your situation.

Once you’ve selected your new garbage disposal, our team of licensed plumbers will make sure installation is done quickly and correctly. We have years of experience installing kitchen fixtures and we know what it takes to get everything working as it should and ready for use.

Tips For Keeping your Garbage Disposal In Great Working Order

Once your new garbage disposal is properly installed, you want to make sure you’re using it properly and safely. Here are some tips for safe and continued use of your garbage disposal:

  • Only use your garbage disposal for small food particles and waste. Larger food items should still go in the trash or compost.
  • If your garbage disposal jams, turn it off, and use a flashlight to look down inside. Once you pinpoint the problem, use needle nose pliers (NOT YOUR HANDS) to remove the blockage or debris.
  • If your garbage disposal jams and you can’t locate a blockage, it may have gone into overload protection mode. Try reseting it.
