What to do When You Have Garbage Disposal Problems

If your garbage disposal breaks or jams, there are a few things you may want to check out before calling a Houston plumber. If the garbage disposal is not making its running sound, it could be an electrical problem. Make sure that the unit is plugged in and the switch that powers the unit is on. Check to see the circuit breaker has not tripped, and then press the reset button on the very bottom of the garbage disposal unit. If the garbage disposal still will not operate it is likely beyond repair.

It is very important that you have a good quality garbage disposal. A garbage disposal main purpose is handling food waste.  If your garbage disposal has been nothing but headaches to deal with then you should consider upgrading to a better model.  Garbage disposals have different horse powers and it can be difficult to discern which model is right for your home.   There are so many models to choose from and the plumber experts from Nick’s Plumbing & Sewer Services can offer the best advice for your particular needs.
