Benefits of Installing a Garbage Disposal
If you’re the type of Lexington homeowner that spends a lot of time in the kitchen, cooking and hosting guests, then chances are you rely on your garbage disposal quite a bit. However, it’s a common misconception among homeowners that your unit can handle anything you throw at it. Some of the items you should never throw down your garbage disposal include cooking grease, fibrous foods like potatoes, and food scraps like bones.
Over time, like any appliance in your home, your garbage disposal can deteriorate. Whether the blades are making excess noise or your system isn’t turning on at all, it is never a good idea to stick your hand down the drain to try and fix the problem. Instead, opt for garbage disposal repair services from an expert plumber.
If, however, your system is beyond repair, a new system may offer plenty of benefits as well. With a garbage disposal installation, you can enjoy:
- Quieter operation
- Stronger blades
- Longer appliance lifespan
- Lower energy costs
- Larger waste capacity
When you are ready to install a garbage disposal, you can work with our plumbers to find the ideal solution. We take the time to understand your home needs and budget and provide you with a range of options.
Dishwasher Supply Line Leak Detection & Repair
Suspect a leak in your dishwasher’s supply line? Dishwasher line leaks can remain hidden and undetected unless handled by a licensed plumber. Not getting timely repairs can result in damaged cabinets and flooring, or worse, mold. Call Dr Rooter for immediate leak detection and repair.
Common Dishwasher Problems
If your dishwasher is showing any of the following signs, you may need to call for repairs:
- Leaking: First, check the door and door gasket for any cracks or damage the could be preventing the door from closing. Any large cracks indicate the gasket will need to be replaced.
- Doesn't wash your dishes: Perhaps you are overloading the machine, or a utensil could be stuck in the spray arm.
- Doesn't dry your dishes: The heating element needs repair. A malfunctioning thermostat means the heat can shut off before the dishes are dry.
- Smells bad: The problem is likely to be old food stuck in the dishwasher's screen. It may just need a good washing. Be sure to pre-rinse dishes in the future to avoid these odors.
- Won't start: Check the power to see if a fuse has been blown and the outlet is malfunctioning. It could also be the latch isn't fully closing. Once these problems check out, see if your dishwasher sounds like it is trying to work. If this is the case, the motor could be stuck.
