Commercial Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation in San Diego
Restaurants and other businesses depend on their garbage disposals as much as families do. And yet, employees often do not take the same level of care that homeowners, their children and guests take of the in-home unit. We find more damaging objects in commercial establishments than in the residences we visit. Restaurants and other businesses must keep garbage disposals working so odors do not invade work areas and impact visitor perception and employee productivity.
The garbage disposal can be tricky. While a handy employee can sometimes get an unresponsive one to work by pressing the little button on the bottom of the unit, most issues are more complicated. If the undercutter disk jams, the impeller wears out or the hoses and seals start leaking, a professional plumber like Perry Plumbing Heating & Air gets the unit repaired quickly and affordably. Having an experienced professional handle the job avoids a total garbage disposal replacement.
Commercial Garbage Disposal Repair
These days, manufacturers engineer garbage disposals with high-end technology and heavy-duty materials. But no blade can beat a stone, five pounds of clam shells or a tenacious noose of celery strings and pumpkin pulp. Some of the items to never put down the garbage disposal will surprise you. Business and restaurant owners should post a laminated list near the sink covering exactly what should be put into the waste can rather than the garbage disposal. This simple step could keep your garbage disposal free of problems for years.
When our commercial customers call for a garbage disposal repair, we make sure to give them a two-hour window of time for our arrival. After all, we understand how important keeping momentum going every day. We make sure to send a technician qualified in commercial garbage disposal repair so that he or she can depend not only on protocol but on decades of experience fixing plumbing issues just like yours. All of our technicians are background-checked, bonded and insured.
Commercial Garbage Disposal Installation
While the International Association of Home Inspectors put the life span of a garbage disposal at about 12 years, with proper usage and maintenance, you could keep yours grinding longer. Following the manufacturers directions in the maintenance guide and keeping the above items OUT of it also prolongs its life.
If you do need new garbage disposal installation after all, our customers have been thrilled with the InSinkErator Evolution Excels when they want the top of the line model. At $325, they are not cheap, but they are 60% quieter than other models and they have a one horsepower engine, as opposed to the 1/3 and 1/2 engines most other units come with. The Evolution Excels’ three speeds consume stringy veggies and other materials more effectively. A similar model—noisier but with the same 1 horsepower-level motor—can be yours for $125. This General Electric 1 HP Continuous Feed disposal also handles the tough stuff like stringy vegetables. Just need a garbage disposal for simple stuff? You can easily spend just $65 on a new, low-end model.
The new garbage disposal must be installed precisely to avoid leaks and unnecessary vibration. We will send a technician with years of experience mounting the unit and connecting the hoses exactly so that your unit remains quiet and functioning smoothly for years to come. Off balance or imperfect installation causes rattling which leads to part wear. When installed as intended, the unit runs more quietly for longer.
