Garbage Disposal Installation

Upper Valley Garbage Disposal Services

At Jerm’s Plumbing & Heating, we can provide expert garbage disposal repair services. No matter what make or brand of garbage disposal you currently have, our technicians have years of experience in dealing with all problems which can arise. We can also quickly and easily install a new garbage disposal system into your current drain system. Our skilled technicians will remove the old unit if necessary, or install the new unit completely to the existing drain if a new fit.

As with all of our plumbing services, the garbage disposal repair or new installation will be thoroughly examined and tested before our technician cleans the work area and explains how you should use and care for your unit. As with all of our other services, we guarantee all of our products and workmanship to make sure you have the best possible experience when you choose Jerm’s Plumbing & Heating as your plumbing company.

Garbage Disposal Tips

To help minimize the need for garbage disposal repair, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Cold water – Use only cold water when grinding food as hot water can melt fat which clogs in other areas of your drain when it cools.
  • Overfilling – Garbage disposals are the unsung heroes of kitchens, yet they are often overloaded which can lead to clogging and burned out motors.
  • Running water – Always run water before and after using your garbage disposal. As with any sort of pump designed for use with water, they wear when running dry.
  • Drain cleaners – Never use bleach or drain cleaners in your unit.
  • Hard items – Any hard food scraps or waste should be avoided such as bones, pits, and coffee grounds as well as any items made of rubber, metal, or glass.

While we do have a DIY guide to changing your disposal on our blog; it is highly recommended to seek the assistance from professionals like Jerm’s Plumbing & Heating due to the risks from handling sharp blades and also working with electricity in an environment that includes water.

Jeremy, Shawn, Chris, Hunter, and Emily all teamed up to help me out with an old-house plumbing nightmare that suddenly erupted (literally). They are organized, awesome at communications, sharp as *tacks*, supertidy, and so nice to work with -- and they are GREAT at discussing options. There is nothing like working with knowledgeable, licensed, insured plumbers -- they know their stuff! I have more work to do in my old house, and I will 110% be asking them to help.

These guys are great! They are quick to reply, show up when they say they will, and are extremely professional. Upon finishing the work, they leave no trace of being there, other than the fantastic work. I wouldn't think of using anyone else for my plumbing needs, as they are the most reliable company I've hired.

Very professional




Review of Jerm's Plumbing & Heating, Inc.

I had a couple of small projects done on one day. They did them all very well and described all of the options and pricing before letting me choose which direction to go. They were friendly and made sure to clean up any mess before they left. I appreciated being updated on the entire scheduling and arrival time via text, including a picture of the people who would be arriving at my house before hand. The whole process was very straightforward and the work was done well.
