Garbage Disposal

Olympia Garbage Disposal Services

The number of homes in Lacey, WA that have a garbage disposal built into their kitchen sinks is on the rise. This simple little device has made so many of our lives much easier and helped us to get rid of hundreds of pounds of kitchen scraps every year. It is also a common issue we deal with here at Brooks Plumbing. No one thinks much about their disposal until it starts making too much noise or simply stops working, and then they call us.

Tumwater Garbage Disposal Problems

Garbage disposal problems can be very common in Tumwater, WA. In as much as the average garbage disposal is built with a high torque motor and a set of very strong and sharp blades, this does not mean that you cannot bog down your disposal and cause it to overheat.

An overheated disposal unit may cool down and return to full operational condition on its own, however not all of them have an automatic overheat protector and reset. In this case you will most likely need to replace the entire unit. In either case you are going to need to have one of our trained plumbers come to your home and take a look at the problem.

As long as your waste disposal unit is not more than a few years old, our technician may be able to simply clean out whatever is causing the jam. Following this, he will inspect the blades for damage and the casing for signs of overheating. If all goes well, he will turn it on and test its operation to ensure that none of the blades are bent and causing excessive vibration.
