Bryan Garbage Disposal Installation & Repair
Handling Clogged Sinks & More in College Station & Surrounding Areas
With a garbage disposal, you may think you can put anything in your sink and it will be taken care of by your disposal. This is simply not the case. Some garbage disposals operate more efficiently than others and can get rid of food much easier. Others have problems when certain foods try to pass through. Your garbage disposal is connected to your sink drain and can back up easily. All it takes is some food to become stuck in the disposal, clogging your sink.
If your garbage disposal stops working, contact Action Plumbing for help. Our expertise includes garbage disposal repair and replacement in Bryan. Garbage disposals can be troublesome to try to fix on your own, especially with their sharp blades.
What is the average garbage disposal life expectancy?
Chances are your home has a garbage disposal installed. It's incredibly useful for food prep as well as clean up. But, the average life of a garbage disposal is about 8 to 15 years. Just like all appliances, they will eventually stop working as efficiently as they once did or stop working all together. In order to avoid that it's important to maintain your garbage disposal by not allowing certain things to pass through it. Here are a few things that you should avoid putting down your garbage disposal,
Grease and oil -
This can solidify in the drain and cause clogs.
Stringy vegetables -
Egg plant skin or celery can be the main culprits. The strings can get caught on the blades and cause clogs.
- Fruit pits or any other hard food that can damage the blades.
Rice or Pasta -
Pasta can expand when it gets wet, making it much more difficult for the garbage disposal to break up and eventually causing a clog.
