- A garbage disposal option that lasts forever
- Industry leading warranties
- You choose the best solution for your home
For the most part, garbage disposals are a simple unit that most people don’t think much about. The most common sign that you are in need of a new garbage disposal is that water is leaking out of the bottom. Many of the disposals that big box stores sell use a regular steel housing. The problem with standard steel is that it rusts, cracks, and falls apart. When this happens, the water flows out of the bottom of the unit rather than down the drain. The last thing you want is a nasty mess under your sink!
We will also see teeth in the units become deformed and create a bind. When this happens, it places stress on the motor of the unit and causes it to wear it out faster.
Proper Use of Disposals?
Garbage disposals are one of the most misused appliances in the home. Sometimes people even clean out their fridge or pantry and send all of that hard food right down the garbage disposal. This is NOT what a garbage disposal is made for!
If it can fall off your plate, let it fall in the trash. Anything else that is left, rinse it down that garbage disposal with plenty of water to accompany it.
Pushing massive amount of food down garbage disposal units is directly related to their premature failure.
When you look at those warranties in the box stores, there is a reason they are only a year or so.
Do you really want to invest in something that the manufacturer will only warranty for a year?
We are willing to bet no. And that’s why we install the garbage disposals that we trust and real warranties to go along with them.
- ½ HP unit – 5-year full warranty.
- ¾ HP unit (A little quieter) – 10-year full warranty.
- 1 HP unit we give a FULL LIFETIME warranty.
The only reason we can offer these warranties is because we trust the craftsmanship in the units we install. Remember how we said most units have regular steel housing? Not ours, we install units with stainless steel housings.
Your long-term Flowing Freedom is our top priority.
One last tip from us. When you go to remodel your kitchen, consider the sink and counter you will be installing. The new craze is to install countertops with deep sinks mounted on the bottom of the counter top.
This will drop the garbage disposal drain port lower than the pipe that leads into your house’s plumbing. At first, this doesn’t appear to be a problem; however, water is not able to properly drain and it lets water sit in the bottom of the garbage disposal. Even if it is a small amount, it will lead to your disposal rusting out prematurely.
