Garbage Disposal Installation

Garbage Disposals

Garbage Disposal installations are common place today in our homes and like other appliances have issues from time to time. The most common issue is a clog or obstruction and water drains slowly, sometimes causing dirty water to flow back into the sink.   This usually leads to unpleasant odors  around the kitchen sink which no one wants.

Depending upon the age of your garbage disposal, the blades can become dull or completely break-off from years of grinding up food.   

Macatawa Plumbing can assist with installations, repairs, and replacements.   Please call us at (616) 772-0388.

This will depend upon the size of your family and your cooking habits.  In general, a 3-6 person household should be fine with a 1/2 to 3/4 HP model.

There’s likely some food waste stuck inside the chamber which is starting to rot.   If it continues, you may want to use some water & bleach to kill any odor causing bacteria.

Yes but it’s not really recommended.   Too much waste going into your septic tank can cause much larger issues for you.   It’s better to start composting.
