Leaking Garbage Disposal

Leaking Garbage Disposal

Location:

Residential Home in Boca Raton FL, 33428

Cause of Problem:

Leaking Garbage Disposal

Resolution:

On a late Friday afternoon Rhino Rooter received a service request for a leaking garbage disposal. The home owner was in the middle of cooking for a large party and repairs where urgent. The Rhino Rooter plumber was dispatch immediately to investigate the situation. The plumber found that the garbage disposal leaking from the base of the housing. Unfortunately this particular leak was not repairable. It also created large mess from the leaking into the cabinets below.

The leaking garbage disposal was replace with a new unit. The plumber installed a Badger 5 disposal with new electrical whip. The basket drain was also removed and replace from the stainless steel sink. The new basket drain was installed so that the new disposal would fit correctly and be leak free. The new drain also insured a nice tight seal to prevent future leaks and issues. All the work was able to be completed in a timely fashion that the customers dinner party did not skip a beat.

The modern garbage disposal average life expectancy is is anywhere from 6-10 years. It is best to only use the the garbage disposal for small amounts of food at a time. You should NEVER use the disposal as a garbage. Avoid egg shells, pasta/noodles, coffee grounds, fruit peels, rice, and similar items. The best way to clean your garbage disposal is simple. Fill the disposal and sink full of ice cubes and turn the unit on. This will actually cause the blades to be cleaned of any food build up to eliminate smells. After you can mix two part white vinegar to one part baking soda and pour down the disposal. Let it sit for an hour then, pour hot water down the drain to flush out.
