Waste disposal units offer various innovative features to ensure efficient disposal of food waste, ease of use, and longevity. Here are the primary characteristics of these indispensable kitchen appliances:
- Broad Food Waste Disposal: Capable of disposing of virtually any food, waste disposal units offer an effective solution to quickly and cleanly dispose of kitchen waste.
- Self-Cleaning Mechanism: When used, the waste disposal unit is self-cleaning. This not only keeps your unit clean but also enhances its lifespan.
- Water & Energy Conservation: Low energy and water consumption make waste disposal units environmentally friendly.
- Safe use: Prioritising safety, these units use grinders instead of blades, significantly reducing the risk of accidents.
- Ease of Unjamming: On the off chance that your unit becomes jammed, it’s been designed to be quickly and easily freed, minimising inconvenience.
- Sink Compatibility: A waste disposal unit can be installed whether you’ve got a single or half-bowl sink made from any material.
- Silent Operation: Waste disposal units operate quietly.
- Hot Water Supply Connection: Waste disposal units can be connected to your hot water supply to enhance waste breakdown capabilities.
- Septic Tank Compatibility: Waste disposal units are compatible with septic tank systems.
Waste Disposal Unit Installation
Waste disposal unit installation starts with thoroughly examining the kitchen plumbing to ensure compatibility.
If needed, the plumber will remove the sink strainer and existing unit before positioning and securing the new one.
The unit is connected to the electrical supply. The Plumbers ensure it’s properly grounded.
If required, the plumber will make necessary plumbing adjustments to accommodate the unit before connecting it to the drain pipe.
Inspection & testing confirms everything is correctly installed and leak-free.
Waste Disposal Unit Repairs
Waste disposal units, like any appliance, may require occasional repairs, such as:
- Jammed Units: One of the most frequent problems, often caused by attempting to grind inappropriate items or non-food materials. This requires unjamming the unit, which may involve manually turning the blades to dislodge the jammed item.
- Leaks: Over time, the seals around the unit or the pipes connected may deteriorate, leading to leaks. These leaks need to be repaired by replacing seals or tightening connections.
- Humming but Not Grinding: If the motor hums but the unit doesn’t grind, it might be jammed, or the motor might be failing. It could require either unjamming or motor replacement.
- No Power: If the unit doesn’t turn on, the problem could be as simple as needing to reset the circuit breaker or involve more complex electrical issues.
- Poor Grinding or Draining: If the unit is not grinding effectively or is draining too slowly, there may be a problem with the blades, or the drain line could be clogged. This may require blade sharpening or drain unblocking.
