When to Replace a Garbage Disposal 

Garbage disposals can last about 10 to 12 years, depending on the type of disposal and how it has been treated. The lifespan can be influenced by how often the disposal is used and how well it has been cared for. Keeping the disposal clean and well-maintained will help maximize its life, but you will eventually need to replace it. 

Signs the disposal needs replacement include: 

  • The unit clogs frequently 
  • It’s leaking 
  • Needing to constantly hit the reset button
  • Grinding food too slowly or not completely 
  • The disposal makes noise but isn’t grinding 
  • Excessive rust or corrosion 

Knowing when to replace the garbage disposal can be confusing. A licensed plumber can inspect your unit to figure out the cause of the problem and recommend replacing an outdated or badly damaged appliance. Since problems with San Jose garbage disposals can lead to clogs and blocked kitchen drains, it is best to deal with malfunctions and get the unit replaced quickly.  

Garbage Disposal Installation 

Whether you are replacing a broken disposal or installing a new disposal for new construction or a remodel, the process starts with selecting the right type and size for your home. Selecting the best unit for your home will depend on your household size, the amount of food you put down the drain, and your budget. 

To find the best unit, be sure to consider: 

  • Disposal type – There are two main types of garbage disposals: continuous feed and batch feed. Continuous feed disposals are the most common and convenient. You put scraps down the drain while the disposal is running. Batch feed disposals require that you put the scraps in and place a stopper over the drain to turn it on. 
  • Horsepower – Disposals range from 1/3 to 1 hp. The right size depends on the size of your home and the amount and type of foods you grind. 
  • Material – The most durable garbage disposals have stainless steel components and grind chambers. Stainless steel resists corrosion for longer life. 
  • Noise level – All disposals make some noise but some are louder than others. Some disposals are designed with elements to reduce noise, such as insulation and sound baffles to ensure quieter operation. 

We can help you explore the options to find the best type and size garbage disposal to fit your needs and your budget. Your new disposal will be installed correctly by qualified plumbers for years of reliable performance.
