The Evolution disposals also incorporate patented SoundSeal™ technology for whisper-quiet operation, and MultiGrind™ Technology to handle the heaviest food waste.  

Need Garbage Disposal Repairs in San Diego?  

It’s always a bit concerning when you turn on your garbage disposal and it screeches back at you. Most times it’s due to a simple problem, like an unseen spoon. Other times, strange and loud noises from your garbage disposal could indicate a larger issue. When your garbage disposal is overworked, old, or outdated, it may experience some complications that require a repair service. Some common problems with garbage disposal include:

Your garbage disposal is making loud and unusual noises. 

Metal-on-metal grinding or loud noises are indicators of potential wear and tear in your garbage disposal. Ignoring these sounds can result in irreparable damage to the unit.

Your garbage disposal isn’t turning on or off.

Disposals, despite being plumbing appliances, rely on electricity for operation. Issues such as loose connections or wire damage can prevent engagement. 

Your garbage disposal or sink is clogged or leaking.

Jams occur when unsuitable items like vegetables, bones, or coffee grounds are disposed of, or if the blades are obstructed. Leaks from your disposal can cause significant damage to your plumbing system if not addressed promptly. Don’t hesitate to contact us for swift and precise leak detection and repair services. 

Your garbage disposal is not grinding food waste:

When your disposal fails to efficiently grind food waste, it’s likely due to issues with the blades such as dullness, bending, or misalignment. 

No matter your garbage disposal issue, Anderson Plumbing will thoroughly assess and investigate the problem, making sure you get the right repairs.

Get Your Garbage Disposal Replaced

Depending on your garbage disposal problems, you may need a full replacement instead of repairs. It’s our goal to provide you with the best plumbing solutions for your situation and would never recommend a replacement unless it was necessary. Our streamlined garbage disposal replacement process allows you to get time back in your day and have peace of mind knowing your system is built to last. 

Schedule a Garbage Disposal Maintenance Service

Your garbage disposal plays a crucial role in your plumbing setup, so it’s important to give it the care it deserves. When problems arise, troubleshooting can help keep it running smoothly. Typically, issues with garbage disposals stem from overloading them with food scraps.

To maintain your disposal effectively, it’s essential to be mindful of the amount of food waste you’re putting into it. Excessive usage can lead to clogs and other issues. Additionally, if you encounter complex problems you’re not sure how to tackle, it’s best to seek assistance from our certified technicians rather than attempting to fix them yourself.

What To Avoid Putting Down Your Garbage Disposal

Here are some items you should avoid putting in your garbage disposal to ensure it continues running smoothly:

  • Coffee grounds: They can accumulate and form clumps, leading to clogs.
  • Pasta: The sticky nature of pasta can cause it to adhere to the disposal’s blades or pipes.
  • Bones: Hard bones can damage the disposal’s blades and motor.
  • Oatmeal: Its thick consistency can create a paste-like substance that clogs the disposal.
  • Nuts: Hard nuts can damage the blades or cause blockages.
  • Onion skins: These thin layers can wrap around the disposal’s components, causing them to jam.
  • Eggshells: Despite common belief, eggshells can create tiny granules that contribute to clogs.
  • Potato peels: The starchy nature of potato peels can lead to a gummy residue that clogs the disposal.
  • Paint: Chemicals in paint are harmful to the disposal and can contaminate water sources.

By avoiding these items, you can help keep your garbage disposal clog-free and functioning efficiently.
