It’s easy to take your hardworking garbage disposal for granted. But when problems occur with your device, the effect is quickly apparent—your trash bin fills up faster, and a clog may develop in your kitchen drain.
This is where we come in. JMK Plumbing provides professional garbage disposal repair and installation for homeowners throughout Springboro and southwestern Ohio. We’ll take a look at the problem and help you determine the most cost effective solution.
Should You Repair or Replace Your Garbage Disposal?
We typically perform repairs when possible to keep costs reasonable for you. So if your garbage disposal is still under warranty, we will fix the problem rather than replace your entire unit.
However, if you have a garbage disposal that is over 10 years old and this isn’t the first time it’s broken down, you may want to consider replacement. Although older units can be repaired, problems will often persist and cost you more in the long run. In this case, installing a brand new garbage disposal is the more cost effective option.
Here are some of the more common garbage disposal problems we handle:
If you notice your garbage disposal working less efficiently than usual, give us a call to have the problem checked out. We will diagnose the issue and present you with options that fit your needs and budget.
Selecting the Right Device For Your Home
Homeowners who have been researching new garbage disposals will notice that there are two types: continuous feed and batch feed. Both are great options and the one you choose will ultimately depend on your preferences.
Continuous Feed Garbage Disposals
Continuous feed devices are more popular and more widely available. Your current garbage disposal is most likely this type.
As their name suggests, continuous feed units can be left to run continuously as you drop in your food scraps one by one.
Benefits: Continuous feed garbage disposals are budget friendly and you will have many models to choose from. Homeowners also enjoy their ease of use and convenience in daily waste disposal.
Drawbacks: You will need to be more cautious while the device is running and make sure utensils or other important objects aren’t accidentally dropped in the drain. Continuous feed units also work better with the water running, which can increase your monthly water bill.
Is it right for you? Continuous feed garbage disposals are ideal for households with a lot of waste to grind, since you can easily drop in food scraps while the device is running. This is also the best value for those looking for convenience on a budget.
Batch Feed Garbage Disposals
With batch feed garbage disposals, the unit will only start once a dedicated drain stopper is in place.
Benefits: The main draw of batch feed devices is their higher safety aspect. They won’t run without the drain stopper, which provides greater peace of mind for parents with small children or for those who tend to drop things in the drain!
Drawbacks: Batch feed garbage disposals require a higher upfront investment compared to continuous feed devices. And since they are powered by the drain stopper, you will need to grind your waste in “batches.” This may seem inconvenient if you have a significant amount of daily food scraps to grind.
Is it right for you? We recommend batch feed garbage disposals for smaller households or those who don’t have too much daily waste to grind. Batch feed units are also ideal for those who prioritize safety.
Whichever type of garbage disposal you choose, JMK Plumbing is here to help make sure your new device is installed properly. You’ll have an efficient garbage disposal set up and running again in no time!
