Garbage disposals are the environmentally friendly way to dispose of waste and also help to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. Disposals only use about 1% or less of a household’s total water consumption and cost generally less than 50 cents a year in electric usage.
Home Performance Group is a local single source provider for residential plumber services. Our technicians are here to diagnose, repair, or replace your garbage disposal. In addition to most standard plumbing services we also provide the more specialized capabilities for design, engineering, and installation of hydronic heating systems for floors, walls and ceilings, hot water re-circulation and gray water heat recovery systems.
Garbage Disposal Learning
The best way to make sure your garbage disposal works properly at all times is to prevent problems from occurring in the first place. Almost all garbage disposal problems are avoidable. Below is a list of items you should avoid putting down your garbage disposal:
- Coffee grounds
- Bone fragments and eggshells
- Banana peels
- Potato skins
- Onion skins
- Fruit pits and seeds
- Stringy vegetables like asparagus and celery
There are high end disposal options that can liquefy most garbage without damage. Ask one of our experienced technicians about available alternatives.
