In some cases, Houston garbage disposal repair is unavoidable. Every unit will break eventually. However, most are supposed to last up to 15 years! If you’re noticing yours is breaking down a lot or you’re replacing your unit more frequently than that, we want to help you avoid the inconvenience and costs.

Houston Kitchen Plumbing

Most homes have garbage disposals to help grind up food waste and send it down your kitchen drain. However, the problem we often see is that many people don’t know what can and can’t go down the disposal. This can lead to needing frequent Houston garbage disposal repair and replacement.

Here are some things you should never put down your disposal:

  • Bones
  • Fruit pits and seeds
  • Trash
  • Grease
  • Fibrous foods like:
    • Celery
    • Corn husks
  • Starchy foods like:
    • Rice
    • Pasta
    • Potatoes
  • Coffee grounds
  • Egg shells
  • Nuts

Also, putting anything down the garbage disposal in bulk can put too much stress on the unit and make it break down or wear out faster. This could mean frequent Houston garbage disposal repair. Instead, feed the disposal slowly with small amounts of food waste at a time.
