How Often Do You Need to Replace a Garbage Disposal?

Garbage disposals are designed to last for many years, but their lifespan can vary depending on factors such as usage and maintenance. On average, garbage disposals can last anywhere from 8 to 15 years. Regular maintenance and proper usage can help prolong the lifespan of your garbage disposal and prevent the need for premature replacement. 

Here are a few tips for maintaining your garbage disposal:

  • Run cold water before, during, and after using your disposal 
  • Avoid using harsh chemical cleaners 
  • Clean your disposal with ice cubes, rock salt, and cold water
  • Use citrus peels to naturally clean and freshen your garbage disposal

    Signs You Need to Repair or Replace Your Garbage Disposal 

    Your garbage disposal plays a crucial role in keeping your home’s plumbing system working properly. Over time, wear and tear can cause issues that require disposal repair or replacement. By addressing problems with your garbage disposal promptly, you can prevent further damage to your plumbing system and avoid costly repairs in the future. 

    Here are some signs you need to schedule a garbage disposal service in Santa Clara:

    • Frequent clogs or jams
    • Slow-draining sink
    • Leaks under the sink
    • Foul odors coming from the sink
    • Excessive vibration during use
    • Blades not turning
    • Sluggish performance 
    •  Unusual noises coming from the garbage disposal

    If you notice any of these signs, have a plumber from Smart Plumbers & Rooters inspect your garbage disposal as soon as possible. We diagnose the issue and recommend the best course of action, which could include repair or replacement. In many cases, repairs are more cost-effective than replacement. However, if your garbage disposal is old and experiencing frequent issues, it may be in your best interest to replace it. 

    14 Things to Stop Putting Down Your Garbage Disposal

    Many people make the mistake of treating their garbage disposal like actual trashcans. While the name “garbage disposal” might imply that it can handle any garbage, that isn’t the case. There are a number of items and types of food waste that can wreak serious havoc on your pipes and cause blockages and clogs that can contribute to plumbing emergencies over time. We recommend being mindful about what you put down your garbage disposal to avoid unnecessary plumbing problems. 

    Below are 14 things you should never put in your garbage disposal:

    • Bones
    • Fruit pits 
    • Grease, oil, and fat 
    • Starchy vegetables (i.e., celery and asparagus)
    • Pasta
    • Rice
    • Eggshells
    • Coffee grounds 
    • Harsh drain cleaners 
    • Potato peels 
    • Onion skins 
    • Non-food items (i.e., plastic, produce stickers, or glass)
    • Shells from seafood 
    • Nuts and seeds
