Waste Disposal Unit Repairs and Installation London

A waste disposal unit is a device that shreds food waste, breaking them down into small pieces less than 2mm in size so that they can pass through plumbing pipes. Waste disposal units are very important in the household when it comes to disposing of food waste. They are also helpful when it comes to running the kitchen smoothly and effectively. It thus becomes a problem when the disposal unit does not perform its function effectively anymore. It could be mild, it could be severe, but however serious it may be, professional assistance is required. Below are some problems you might encounter with a waste disposal unit.

Common waste disposal unit problems

Because of its nature, a waste disposal unit has different working parts and components that combine to carry out the work of disposing of food waste. A flaw or fault in any of these components ultimately affects the overall output of the device. Some of the problems you might notice include;

1. Power problems

This simply means the disposal unit doesn't respond when it is turned on. This problem could be an indication of an electrical problem, preventing current from being delivered to the device. At Emergency Plumbers London, we highly advise you to call us if you experience such issues, as it requires experts to handle such problems.

2. The disposable unit does not work when turned on

If the disposal unit hums when turned on, but does not grind, there is a problem. It means the inner flywheel has jammed. As professionals, we would not advise you to allow it to continue because the disposal motor can burn out. Calling us in situations like this will remedy the problem and prevent damage to your disposal unit.

3. Leaking disposal unit

Constant use can lead to leakage in some places in a waste disposal unit. The number of times, we have received calls from clients for help in fixing leaking problems in their disposal units, the three most common places where leaks do occur in the unit include;

  • Leak at the dishwasher connection
    This occurs in the hose that connects waste water from the dishwasher to the waste disposal.
  • Leaks at the discharge drainpipe
    When the gasket gets old, the pipe that channels wastewater from the disposal to the drain can develop leaks.
  • Leaks at the sink flange
    The apparatus that holds the disposal units to the sink drain can loosen over time and leaks can occur from here.

4. Slowly drained disposal

This is usually caused by a clog when food particles are lodged somewhere in the unit, causing a slow drain of water.
