Easy Garbage Disposal Replacement Information

Replacing a broken garbage disposal is often a daunting task to the inexperienced. Everyone is just slightly worried about mixing electricity and water or dealing with unfamiliar sink connections and drain fittings. Of course, then you must shop around for replacement units or parts. It’s all a little daunting. We aim to make garbage disposal replacement easier and more accessible for everyone in the San Antonio area.

Garbage Disposal Replacement Costs

When purchasing a new garbage disposal to replace an old model, setting a clear budget is important. New models can range from $70 for low-end disposals to nearly $400 for high-end garbage disposals. You should be straightforward about your budget and intentions are. A less expensive unit is likely to produce more noise and clog easier. However, an expensive unit, while quieter and more efficient, will obviously cost more upfront.

You also want to consider the cost of wiring. If you do not have the appropriate wiring or connections for a garbage disposal, that is one more expense to consider. Hiring a professional is most likely the best path to take, as they will consider your needs from model to installation.

Replacement Options

Most modern garbage disposals are made of stainless steel, which helps prevent corrosion and prolongs the lifespan of the internal blades. A disposal should be replaced once the blades become dull. The cost is comparable to installing a new model – and wiring should be in place already, thankfully.

If your disposal ceases to work, check the overload protection, first and foremost. You should notice a red button on the bottom, which is activated once the disposal is jammed or overloaded. This button helps prevent damage to the motor. If the jam is simple enough, you won’t need a replacement. A replacement is often the best bet, though.
