Garbage Disposal Repair in San Rafael

Your garbage disposal is one of the most useful appliances in your home. It makes cleaning up easier and faster. But when something goes wrong, it can ruin your whole day.

In fact, all of our plumbers have gone through the PHCC Apprenticeship Training Program, meaning your plumbing is expert hands.

Signs Your Disposal Needs Repairs

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:
  • Leaking
  • Just humming when on
  • Bad smells
  • Backing up
  • Won’t drain
  • Smoking

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.

What Garbage Disposal Problems Can Be Repaired?

There are a number of reasons your garbage disposal might be acting up. One of the most common problems to affect garbage disposals is clogging or a jam. There are things you can do to prevent clogs, but sometimes they happen anyway. You can reduce the risk of clogging your garbage disposal by only putting food down the drain. Additionally, never put the following food down your disposal:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Expanding foods (bread, rice, pasta, etc.)
  • Bones, nuts, shells and seeds
  • Potato and citrus peels
  • Stringy fruits and vegetables
  • Fats and oils

Another problem you could be having with your disposal is a foul odor. If foul odors are coming from your disposal and they won’t go away, we can come and determine where the problem is coming from.

If you find that your garbage disposal is needing repairs more and more frequently, and it is 10 years old or older, you should consider replacement. We can help you find and install affordable and efficient garbage disposal replacement.

Quick Response Time

The response from Gotelli Plumbing was excellent. The next time Tom arrived right on time and the quality of his work was outstanding. When he finished he walked me through everything he had done and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I’m so thankful to have such professionals available when need and on such short notice.

Excellent Service

Tom provided excellent service. He is obviously experienced- and quickly solved the problem. Our gas had to be shut off, so we were without our stove to cook, furnace to heat and hot water. Our home is happy again!

Keith B.

Tom of Gotelli Plumbing provided superb service for us in replacing a very balky tub spout, and worn out toilet parts. Not only was he extremely professional and thorough but he was able to answer all my questions concerning the service. I would give 6 stars if I could.
