Your garbage disposal is one of the lifelines of your home, but you will only notice it, when it is not working properly. If there’s a problem with it, it won’t just break up all your garbage, and may gradually clog up your drain. When that happens, you have our expert technicians at 911 Rooter to help you resolve the issue.

If you live in the Metro Vancouver area and suspect a malfunction or any problem with your garbage disposal, then give us a call. We will be at your service in no time.

We will find the source of the problem and fix it by using advanced techniques. Because we have worked with thousands of garbage disposals in the region, both commercial and residential, we have acquired tremendous knowledge about where the problems commonly occur with these systems.

Common problems with garbage disposals

Here are the most common problems that we encounter with disposal systems in the Greater Vancouver area:

  • Loud noises coming from inside the system
  • Problems while turning on the system
  • Clogging because the disposal didn’t crush the garbage properly
  • Leaks coming from the disposal or from a connected pipe
  • Jamming

What we do

Disposals routinely get jammed when large or irregularly shaped objects are tossed in to the system, or if they land at an awkward angle. In that case, we clear the jam by opening up the socket hole, and clearing the masher plat. More frequent jams hint at a deeper problem, so we probe deeper to find their root cause.

If the motor does not turn on at all, there is either a problem with the power supply or the disposal motor has shutdown because of excessive heat generated. Usually, pressing the overload button resets the motor. However, give us a call if that does not do the trick, as there may be a problem within the motor itself.

When the garbage disposal leaks, the problem is usually somewhere in the plumbing system. Our expert plumbers will do a basic inspection to find out if the leak is superficial. If not, we probe deeper using our sensitive diagnostic tools to find the source of the leak. Whether it is underground or inside one of your walls, our technicians will pinpoint them for you.

One of the most common problems, we are called to fix with disposals in the Greater Vancouver area, is the grinding noises made by the system. This mostly happens because of worn out blades that are not sharp enough to cut through hard objects. It could also be because of the loosened screws due to wear and tear. When this happens, we either replace the blades with new ones or tighten the screws, so that they work more efficiently.

A solution to every problem

Many of our customers in the Metro Vancouver area have been with us for many years. We are able to provide a viable solution to every kind of problem faced with garbage disposals. All you need to do is give us a call and tell us what needs fixing, and we will be at your service within a few hours.

Repairing vs. replacing

Most of the fixes that we apply to garbage disposal systems are minor, and they do not cost a fortune. However, sometimes the problem is so deep that it would cost more to repair it than the price of a new or refurbished system. When this is the case, we advise our clients to invest in a new system as it will work out to be much cheaper.

Please do give us a call at 911 Rooter for any issue regarding garbage disposals. Our experts will be glad to pay you a visit, and make sure that your system runs smoothly, and does the job it is supposed to do.
