Garbage Disposals

HomeGarbage Disposals

We carry and install InSinkErator garbage disposals.

The life expectancy of a garbage disposal is 6-10 years depending on how much use it gets. After years of use the blades will wear down.

You Should Avoid Putting the Following Down the Drain
Egg Shells
Uncooked Rice / Pasta
Fats and Oils
Dog Food - When wet it expends and will clog the drains
Coffee grinds
Fibrous foods - These effect the motor
Grease - Reduce the blades effectiveness
None food Substance - Such as plant clippings, sponges, twist ties, cigarette butts
