Your garbage disposal is responsible for keeping food and other large particles from getting into your pipes and clogging your drains. Although keeping a kitchen sink trap is helpful, a working garbage disposal is a necessary part of your plumbing system. If your garbage disposal has stopped working properly or you need a new one installed, HPS Plumbing Services can handle the job. Our plumbers in San Diego can resolve everything from common malfunctions to worn down parts.

Fixing Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Like any other type of mechanical device, a garbage disposal has many different parts that work together to operate properly. If one part becomes stuck, broken, or even worn down over time, it can lead to the entire device malfunctioning. Our San Diego plumbing repair experts are trained to inspect, diagnose, and repair all types of garbage disposals. We can also install and replace garbage disposals if necessary.

Common Signs You Need A San Diego Garbage Disposal Repair:

  • Loud Rattling Noises - if you notice your garbage disposal is noisier than usual, this could be a sign that the blades are broken, dull, or in need of repair. 
  • Funny Smells - strange smells coming from your garbage disposal could be a sign that it's not draining properly. 
  • Dirty or Excess Water  - this is one of the most common signs of a broken garbage disposal. If your unit is clogged or jammed, water will begin to pool up in your sink.
  • Developing Rust - if you've noticed that the blades of your garbage disposal have begun to rust, it's time for them to be replaced by a professional!

Fixing the Garbage Disposal When it Makes Rattling Noises

One of the most common garbage disposal issues our San Diego plumbers deal with is a strange rattling noise that comes from the system. This sound occurs when there is an object in the garbage disposal that should not be there (i.e. utensils, a screw, etc.).

Here are steps to fix the rattling:

  • Turn off your garbage disposal by unplugging it from the socket under the sink
  • Remove the foreign object using either your hand or tongs (be careful of the blades)
  • Turn your garbage disposal on by plugging it back in

Perform Garbage Disposal Maintenance To Prevent Future Problems

Although you should always trust a trained San Diego plumber from HPS Plumbing Services to fix and install garbage disposals, there are a few steps you can take to help prevent problems in the future. Simple maintenance that you can do yourself can also help to keep your garbage disposal working for longer. While you are running your garbage disposal, you should always have water running at the same time. You should also avoid putting food, oil, or other types of particles down the disposal.
