We keep on top of the current technology for garbage disposals and have the experience necessary to advise you on what will be the best option for your Charlotte, NC family.
Garbage Disposals – Garbage disposals are like most things these days – they are getting better and better with advanced technology. There are also many different models and types available, so it may be difficult to know which of the garbage disposals that are out there are best for your situation. At Wayne’s Plumbing Repair, we keep on top of the current trends and have the experience necessary to advise you on what will be the best option for your family.
- Motor Size: Garbage disposals come in a range of motor sizes such as 1/3 HP, 1/2 HP, 3/4 HP and 1 HP. The higher the HP, the less you will experience jams and clogged lines. If you are especially adverse to jams, there are also options that have an anti-jamming feature, which takes the place of needing to use the hex-wrench to free a jam. You can also go with one that has an auto-reverse feature that automatically does a motor reverse action each time it is used, thereby reducing the chances of a jam altogether.
- Noise: If you have an issue with the inherent noisiness of garbage disposals, you may want to consider a model that has an insulated grinding chamber. These higher-quality garbage disposals are a bit more costly, but the decibel level difference is quite noticeable.
- Materials: Garbage disposals and their components can be made of many different materials, and some will last longer than others. Going with one that has a stainless steel or glass filled nylon food chamber will be your best bet, as they clean easily and do not rust. Stainless steel is a preferred option for other components in garbage disposals, also.
There are other factors that will enter into the equation, such as whether you are on a septic system and whether you have a dishwasher. We take all these situations into consideration when recommending garbage disposals. Give us a call today if you need a new disposal and would like our advice.
