McKinley Plumbing specializes in repairing, replacing, upgrading and installing all makes and models of garbage waste deposals in The Woodlands, Texas.
There are many manufacturers of garbage waste disposals and they come in different sizes. Using the appropriate size makes a big difference in your overall experience with using a garbage waste disposal. Many of our service calls for garbage waste disposals is due to using low horse power.
If you clear your plates to a garbage can and most of the food goes into the can, a low horse power may be sufficient. However, if you clear your plates directly into the garbage waste disposal, you should use a high horse power to accommodate the proper operation. Using too little horse power cause the motors to run hot and burn out and the unit to vibrate loose from its fittings causing leaks.
If you find your sink is backing up when used, there is a drainage issue that needs addressing. If you are constantly needing to stop leaks, you may need a larger horse power. If it rattles when uses, it may be a thin basin or loose sink as well as the horse power being too low.
Using the right garbage waste disposal for the right job is important and getting it installed right is easy, just give us a call and we will help any way we can.
We also service, repair, replace and install commercial grade garbage disposals.
