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.

Great service!! Very efficient, very friendly!!

Had a great 1st experience with Jerms plumbing from a service prospective. I like the text and email appt. confirmations. They were very accommodating with appt. time. Tracey was detailed and communicative. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is I'm not a fan of the $59 "Dispatch Fee". I understand charging a visit fee if no work is completed but don't agree with adding visit fee on top of $350+ worth of work. Also thought $350+ was a little pricey for re-setting a toilet & changing flange - wasn't quite an hour worth of work.

Rebecca - Hartford, VT
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.
Quick and very professional service

Great crew. Crew worked when there was snow on the ground and put “booties” on the feet to not track in house. Very happy with the work performed.
