A garbage disposal is an important device for the kitchen. Located underneath the sink, it serves the purpose of chopping up food particles before they pass through the plumbing. A garbage disposal operates on electricity with a switch located on the wall near the sink. If you do not have a garbage disposal, one can be installed professionally. If you have a disposal in your home and it causes problems, you need a professional to examine the unit to determine if it can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. In the Nashville, TN area contact Green Hills Plumbing for your garbage disposal installation and repair needs.

One common problem with garbage disposals involves items being put in the disposal. Although it is a garbage disposal unit, that does not mean you can put any and all items of garbage in it. There are limits. Exceeding those limits is a main reason you will end up calling Green Hills Plumbing. Examples are animal bones, grease, egg shells and rice. These items are either too strong or too small for the disposal to chop up. Think before you dump garbage in your sink. These items will clog your pipes, and you will need Nashville garbage disposal repair from Green Hills Plumbing.

While repairing a garbage disposal unit may seem like an easy task, it is not unless you are trained. You have to know how to disconnect the unit, examine it to determine the problem, fix the problem and then return the unit to its correct position. Any mistake along the way and there will be problems. Trust the professionals at Green Hills Plumbing in the Nashville area for garbage disposal repair work.

Sometimes the cost of repair is greater than the cost to purchase and install a new garbage disposal. The cost analysis necessary to make that decision is one Green Hills Plumbing can perform for you. They know the lifespan of a garbage disposal unit. They have seen your problem in another setting. They know how long units last after a repair. Let Green Hills Plumbing help you decide whether to repair or replace your unit.
