Obviously, a broken-down garbage disposal is hard to miss. However, your disposal will likely display symptoms of a problem before breaking down, and knowing what to look out for can save you from a bind in the future.
Common signs that your garbage disposal has a problem include:
If any of the above symptoms are happening to your garbage disposal or it won’t turn on at all, contact the experts at Gotelli Plumbing and have a plumber inspect your disposal system.
Because you can’t really see inside a garbage disposal without opening it up, it can be difficult to know when you need a new one. The easiest way to tell if your garbage disposal needs replacing is by its age.
If your garbage disposal is 10 years or older, it has probably reached its life expectancy and needs replacement sooner rather than later. It’s better to replace your garbage disposal now to avoid problems like blocked pipes later. There are also several other signs that your disposal needs to be replaced.
It may be time for a new disposal system if:
While some of these signs may be due to a need for repairs rather than replacement, they’re sure indicators of a major problem with your disposal. You use your garbage disposal virtually every day — you know what’s normal for the system.
By paying attention to unusual noises, leaks and other signs of a problem, you could save yourself a lot of time and money in the long run. Call Gotelli Plumbing for a service visit if you notice any of the signs.
The best way to keep your garbage disposal running smoothly for longer is by being careful with what you put into the system in the first place. Unfortunately, garbage disposals aren’t a catchall for food waste, and there are some foods that can harm the system.
Take care of your garbage disposal by never putting these foods into it:
Steering clear of these foods will help you avoid problems throughout your garbage disposal’s life, reducing repairs and preventing breakdowns.
If you’re not sure whether an item can go down the disposal, it’s better to be safe than sorry — simply throw it away or refer to the list above.
