2. Operating Poorly

If your garburator plumbing system is grinding slowly or poorly, ensure you run enough water when operating it. Letting the water run for several minutes after putting waste in the unit will remove residual crud and ensure no clogs develop. If this does not solve the problem, shut the water and the garburator systems and call Metro Vancouver Plumbing for repair service for the Vancouver area, get redirected here to learn more about our service area.

Are you flipping the disposal switch on and nothing happens? Several things may cause this problem, but the most common is that the reset button has popped out.

Benefits of a Garburator

A garburator will not only help control the accumulation of unnecessary waste but help keep the area clean of excess waste and pollution.

  • Helps create a greener environment

Owning a garburator in your home means that you are less likely to use plastic or paper to dispose of your waste. It also means that you reduce greenhouse gases produced by waste in landfills.

  • More hygienic and cleaner conditions for your house

Typically, one would throw your leftovers into trash bags, which creates a perfect environment for bacteria to thrive. However, with a kitchen disposal, you only scrape the leftovers into the drain and let the unit do the work for you.

  • Affords you massive savings as well as reducing plumbing problems

In the long run, it will save you a ton on plumbing repairs because your drains will be less likely to clog because of food and other debris.

  • Kitchen smells better

The fact that you don’t have any stinky waste lying around in your house means that your kitchen will always smell fresh. Run some water and wash them down the drain. This website will give you with more smell tips & advice.

What Not to Put In Your Garbage Disposal

If you’ve clogged the disposal and the water won’t drain because you put something in it that you shouldn’t have, call the best garbage disposal repair in Vancouver, Metro Vancouver Plumbing. When operating optimally, a garburator mashes up all food you wash with water down the drain. However, some items can’t be processed in the pipe of a waste disposing unit and will result in a call for plumbing installation, service and garburator repair in Vancouver like Metro Vancouver Plumbing.

#1: Coffee grounds

Coffee grounds can be deceptive. They appear to be washed down the drain with water only for them to accumulate and cause a sludgy residue in your drain resulting in the need for repairs.

#2: Oil, Grease, Fat

Oil, grease, and fat will clog your drains with or without a disposal unit, even if you use hot water. Avoid unnecessary service by not placing these items in your disposing unit.

#3: Pasta & Rice

Pasta and rice expand when exposed to water. Highly avoid putting them into your waste disposing unit.

#4: Egg Shells

The membrane lining of a shell can stick to either side of your unit, wrap around the shredder, and ultimately cause damage to moving parts resulting in the need for immediate service.

#5: Celery and Broccoli stalks

These foods consist of fibrous strings that tangle around the disposal’s blade and jam the unit even when running water, resulting in the need for service repair from Metro Vancouver Plumbing, whether you need plumber in Port Coquitlam BC or other close locations, MVP is always ready to help.

#6: Potato peels

Potatoes create a soupy mess that will build up over time, causing rust and bacteria to grow. This will lead to a complete breakdown of the unit which will result in repair or total replacement. Call Metro Vancouver Plumbing for installation cost of a new garbage disposal.

How to maintain a Garbage Disposal

By employing the following tips, you’ll not only extend the life of your waste disposer and avoid unnecessary service to the garbage disposal, but you’ll also prevent jams and clogs in the drain resulting in the need for plumbing service, repair, and installation from the best garbage disposing unit maintenance company in Vancouver, Metro Vancouver Plumbing.

  • Run disposal regularly

Frequently running your system helps prevent rust and corrosion that will lead to the unit seizing up. It also ensures that there is no leftover scrap, which can lead to clogs and odors.

  • Use cold water

Unlike hot water, cold water hardens waste, making it easier for the garburator to grind and push the waste out the drain pipe. This will keep your waste disposing system working at its best.

  • Cut your waste into smaller pieces

Cut your waste into small chunks when putting them into the waste disposing unit. Any waste left too large will cause the unit to overwork, clog, or jam the unit.

  • Clean the inside

As you are cleaning your kitchen, give the drain and the disposing unit a quick clean to eliminate any build up. The buildup of oils and debris will increase chances of a clog resulting in a repair call.

  • Grind thoroughly

Not grinding wastes thoroughly will result in unnecessary repair of the unit. Prolong the life of your garburator by thoroughly flushing any waste through the waste disposing unit to prevent any jams or clogs in your drain. If you don’t hear a grinding noise, call a plumber.
