Why Should You Install a Garbage Disposal?

Greater Convenience

With a garbage disposal you can simply rinse food scraps down the drain, rather than scraping them into a trash can, to save time and effort when doing the dishes. Certain foods like coffee grounds, egg shells, and large bones, should never go down the drain but the majority of leftover food waste can be safely run through a garbage disposal.

Fewer Clogged Pipes and Drains

As you clean your kitchen and wash the dishes, food scraps will naturally flow down the drain. Without a garbage disposal, these food scraps can accumulate and potentially lead to clogged pipes and drains. When you install a garbage disposal, any food waste can be broken down into smaller particles that can easily flow through the plumbing system. 

Reduced Kitchen Odors

Food waste that sits in your trash can or accumulates in your sink can cause unpleasant odors that linger in your kitchen. By installing a garbage disposal, you can conveniently dispose of food waste immediately, preventing it from decomposing and emitting unpleasant smells. 

Easy to Use

Whether you notice water in the sink is not draining or you have to dispose of food waste, operating a garbage disposal is a simple and user friendly process. All you have to do is flip a switch!


When to Replace Your Current Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals, like all other home appliances, have a limited lifespan and will eventually need to be replaced. Pay close attention to your unit and look for signs of issues that require a replacement before more serious problems develop. 

Consider replacing your garbage disposal if you any of the following:

  • Leaks: Water leaks are the most common signs of garbage disposal issues. They typically develop as internal parts wear out over time. This can lead to water damage under the sink and unpleasant odors in the kitchen.
  • Old age: Garbage disposals typically last for 10-15 years. If your system is approaching that age range, be sure not to overuse the system. Continuing to use an aging garbage disposal can lead to more serious problems and potential damage to your plumbing system.
  • Slow drainage: If your kitchen sink is taking longer to drain lately, it might be due to your garbage disposal. This issue can indicate a buildup of debris within the system that will affect performance and can ultimately lead to a complete system failure. 
  • Strange noises while running: When you hear unusual noises while using your garbage disposal, rule out that any foreign objects have fallen down the drain. Next, be sure that the garbage disposal is only running when water and food scraps are present. If strange noises still persist, it could be a sign of internal damage or worn-out components within the system.
