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.

Stuart - Norwich, VT
Willy and Eric installed my new disposer, replacing a 40-year old one. Very professional service, installation, and clean up. Would rather see labor charged by the hour instead of one price up front, but overall very satisfied.
J. R. - Norwich, VT
Received multiple notifications on the appointment and when the technician was on his way. He was knowledgeable and gave me upfront price options before he started working. Once he was finished I was able to pay with a credit card right on the spot. Super convenient and will be calling again.

I've been working with Jerm's P&H for several years now on upgrades to various systems. They're always professional, ready to answer questions and follow up, and thorough in their work. The results look neat, new, and slick. The cost might be a little more than others, but you get what you pay for.

James - Hartland, VT
After being told by multiple companies that there was about a 5 week waiting list, Jerm’s plumbing came within 24 hours to help replace faulty valves. They surveyed the situation, made suggestions, wrote up a couple quotes, and when we decided which route to go, they had the repair done in about an hour. Quick, clean, and priced at the quote we discussed. Will definitely recommend them.
