Fast & Dependable Plumbing Services in Palm Beach County
The average lifespan of a garbage disposal unit is about 12 years. There are, however, factors that will increase or decrease its longevity.
When it’s time for replacing, you may come across these signs:
- Constant clogging – If you’re only disposing of approved foods, running the water during use, and only dumping food in small loads and still encounter clogs you may have dull blades or an undersized unit. This will require a model with enough horsepower to accommodate the number of people in your home.
- You’re regularly resetting it – Every so often, resetting the garbage disposal for large loads and clogs is necessary. If you find yourself frequently needing to, however, this is a likely sign your motor is weakening and needs replacing.
- A leaky unit – It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to see leaks and assume the dishwasher or sink is the culprit when really it’s the garbage disposal. The wear and tear starts forming cracks inside the unit and the leaks come from where the disposal connects to the rest of the plumbing system. When this happens you need a new unit installed.
- Dull blades – If it’s taking an excessive amount of time for food particles to break down, the blades either need to be sharpened or replaced. Sometimes, depending on the level of blade deterioration a new unit will be required altogether.
- Strange Sounds – If you run the disposal and it’s making weird noises you can check to see if anything is blocking or obstructing the blades. If it more closely resembles a humming noise and nothing is happening that means the motor died and it’s receiving electrical power, but can’t run properly and grind the food particles.
Of course, these are only some of the issues you can run into with a garbage disposal unit. If you have any other problems, and you’re looking for prompt service and high quality contact DiMartino Plumbing today
