Beyond Repair: When to Replace Your Garbage Disposal Unit

Repairs might work wonders for some issues, but there are instances where replacing your garbage disposal unit is more practical. Here are some factors to consider:
  • Age and Wear: If your garbage disposal has surpassed its average lifespan of 10 years, replacing it may be more economical. Newer models are often more energy-efficient and equipped with advanced features.
  • Frequent Issues: If you regularly call for plumbing experts, it’s a clear sign that your disposal unit is reaching the end of its service life. It’s then important to compare the cost of repairs to the price of a new disposal. In most cases, a new unit offers better value and eliminates future repair worries.
  • Corrosion or Rust: Visible signs of corrosion or rust on the exterior of your disposal unit suggest internal damage and potential leaks. In such cases, replacing the unit is crucial to prevent further damage to your plumbing system and avoid water damage to your home.
  • Power and Performance: If your unit consistently struggles to handle your waste, it’s likely underpowered or experiencing component failure. A new disposal unit with greater power and features will deliver consistent support.
  • Convenience: If you’re interested in a disposal unit with more features or better performance, replacing your current one is a logical decision. With a range of modern models available, upgrading your disposal unit can enhance the overall functionality of your kitchen and add value to your home.

Do I need to run water through the disposal?

Yes, you should always run water when putting food items at your disposal. If possible, cool water is the best for day-to-day use. However, if you are cleaning your disposal, please refer to your cleaner’s directions for water use.

What are the disposal sizes?

What is a counter switch?
