Garbage Disposals

What you need to know

Putting your hand in the garbage disposal can be scary – especially after that one horror movie. Often times a garbage disposal gets jammed with things you didn’t intend to put down the drain. Bottle caps, silverware, tin lids, and broken glass are common offenders.

While most garbage disposals have a reset button, typical the disposal needs to be disassembled to remove debris. A licensed journeyman plumber can easily determine if the disposal needs serviced or replaced. Additionally, while repairing a garbage disposal we can inspect and/or address other undersink plumbing issues.

Generally garbage disposals have a ten year service life depending on use. Many new models have larger capacities, bigger motors, and run quieter. Also, newer disposals are more efficient at grinding material, making the use of your disposal safer for your plumbing system.

  • Devin is a true professional, kind, honest, up front and knowledgeable. I appreciated his candid approach to the issue and how quick and efficient he worked. Thank you so much for healing my drippy waste/overflow shower issue. His wife Jessica is friendly over the phone and was sensitive to my concerns about the timeliness of having someone come to look at the issue. I would definitely recommend the Sherwood Plumbing Company to anyone!!
