There’s one tell-tale sign that your garbage disposal is in need of repair – it doesn’t turn on! But, beyond this obvious example, there are a number of signals that your garbage disposal is not functioning at its peak and that repairs may be needed.
Fast Rooter Plumbing LLC, one of Oahu’s top plumbing services, recommends that clients call immediately if they see any of these three signs of garbage disposal disrepair:
- Leaks: Whenever any piece of plumbing leaks, it could mean a more serious problem than a simple break in the seal. Always consult your local plumber for assistance before trying to fix it on your own.
- Odd Noises: Strange noises coming from your disposal, especially grinding noises, are a sure warning that one of the mechanical parts within the system is broken or faulty. Alternatively, it could mean that silverware has fallen down the drain. Before the problem requires a costly replacement, call Fast Rooter LLC to take a look at the issue.
- Smell: Phew! A noxious odor that comes from the drain of your garbage disposal is a major indication that the disposal is not chopping large pieces of food properly. Along with seeking repairs from your plumber, it may be time to alter your cleaning habits. Do not put large dense pieces of food down the garbage disposal, as these can ruin the machine.
