Outstanding Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement Service

Fun Fact: Did you know that the first residential garbage disposal was invented in 1927 by architect John W. Hammes? After his patent was approved in 1935, he established the InSinkErator Company and the first residential models were sold in 1940. However, General Electric disputes this fact, arguing that they put out the first model in 1935.

Whichever side you choose to believe, the truth is that garbage disposals are a staple in many American homes today. In fact, while not every home in Inglewood, CA, has a disposal, we think it’s a safe bet to assume that the majority do. This is why at Inglewood Pronto Plumbers we work with the best plumbing contractors in area to ensure that when you need garbage disposal repair and replacement you’ll never have to wait long for experienced plumbing service.

Problems with Household Garbage Disposals

There are a number of different kinds of problems that can pop up, preventing your disposal from working as it should. From food buildup and foreign objects in the propeller to rust and corrosion, there are plenty of reasons why your disposal may not be grinding up food scraps properly. Worn blades can also lead to inefficient operation as can improper wiring or installation.

Our job at Inglewood Pronto Plumbers is to identify the cause of the problem and make repair suggestions that address the issue in a cost effective manner. In some cases, this may mean suggesting garbage disposal replacement. These appliances are not designed to last forever. Eventually, it may become necessary to replace the appliance, especially when the cost to repair far exceeds the cost to purchase a new product. Since garbage disposals are not nearly as expensive as other plumbing products like water heaters, it makes sense not to spend too much money on repairs.

The average garbage disposal will last approximately 10 years. If your appliance is approaching its double digit birthday or has passed it, it is probably in your best interest to replace the unit.
