Garbage Disposal Repair: Pittsburgh & Surrounding Cities

Underneath your kitchen sink lives a waste disposal unit that chops food scraps so fine that they easily flow through your plumbing into a municipal wastewater or your own septic system. Your garbage disposal is connected to the kitchen drain, as well as a trap that catches the food scraps.

Since this little machine is powered by electricity, your garbage disposal might require electrical or mechanical repairs when malfunctioning. This is where our professional plumbers can help. We can fix or replace your food disposal unit so you and your family can make good use of it.

Pittsburgh: Environmental Benefits of Garbage Disposals

As food makes up 10%–20% of the waste material from the average home, garbage disposals make sound environmental sense. Instead of sending all that scrap food to a landfill, your garbage disposal converts it into wastewater. The liquid is easier on the environment and safer for public health than solid waste.
