Garbage disposals are the hard-working kitchen appliance that takes the hassle out of mealtime cleanup. Whether you need on-the-spot repair or an upgrade to a heavy-duty disposal, we can help. Contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing to discuss your garbage disposal options.

Emergency Garbage Disposal Repair

Foods that are too hard, too dense, or too fibrous cause your garbage disposal to grind to a halt. In fact, trying to grind the wrong food is the single most common cause of a broken garbage disposal. Because of the risk for injury to your hands and fingers, trained plumbers are the only ones qualified to handle garbage disposal repair.

Garbage Disposal Leaks

Over a lifetime of doing a hard job, the garbage disposal pipes and the garbage disposal unit itself can leak. These foul-smelling leaks can damage your kitchen, cause the disposal to lose power, and lead to the inconvenience of a broken garbage disposal. We can fix garbage disposal leaks easily, so bring out an expert.

Garbage Disposal Upgrade

If you want to be able to grind bones and other tough food, upgrade to a larger garbage disposal. High-powered, restaurant-grade garbage disposals come equipped with the power to easily grind almost any food or food by-product. We can provide you with expert advice and install your upgraded garbage disposal on the spot.
