The manufacturers of garbage disposals design them to be tough and durable. A well–installed unit from a top brand should last you more than ten years, helping to make your kitchen more convenient and hygienic, as well as contributing to keep food waste out of the landfills.
But a time will eventually arrive when your kitchen’s garbage disposal is too old to continue to function well. When you consider how much mechanical work a disposal does every day in a kitchen, it makes sense that it will reach a point where it’s better to replace it rather than to keep repairing it. You can call Bronco Plumbing Heating and Air when you believe it’s time to retire the old disposal and replace it with a new unit. We offer many kitchen plumbing services for Sacramento, CA, including the fast and effective replacement of garbage disposals. Call us today.

Signs That You Need a New Garbage Disposal
If you have an older garbage disposal (more than 12 years old), keep a watch for signs that it needs replacement. Call for a plumber at the first major indications of trouble, and the plumber will assist you with determining if the disposal should be replaced or not.
The major warning sign that the disposal is in trouble is if it needs multiple repairs. Although disposals handle a great deal of mechanical stress every day, they are built for durability and should encounter more than one or two repairs a year. If the number goes higher, ask your plumber about replacement as an option.
If your older disposal starts to slow down and has difficulty chopping down food waste the way it used to, you should consider replacement. One way you can tell that that disposal isn’t performing up to its former expectations is when the drainpipe starts to experience more clogging because larger food particles are going down it. (Don’t pour ice cubes into the disposal to "sharpen" the blades. The impellers aren’t sharp in the first place and this won’t do any good.)
If you find yourself often having to hit the "reset" button at the bottom of the disposal because it continues to jam, then you likely have a unit that is too mechanically worn down and its flywheel is constantly jamming. Have a plumber check over the system and see if repairs will help or if you should go ahead and have the unit replaced.
