My Garbage Disposal Broke. Where Can I Get A Replacement?

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

My garbage disposal finally stopped. Where do I get a replacement? At Big B’s Plumbing, we have you covered for your garbage disposal replacement. Your garbage disposal should be replaced approximately every 10 to 15 years, and we’ve heard some of them lasting even longer. Like all appliances, if you properly care for them, you can expect them to perform for many years. However, it can be very confusing when making a garbage disposal purchase. You have 1/3, 3/4, and one horsepower models. Just like so many other appliances, garbage disposals have made so many advancements in design and technologies. Before walking into your local home center, do some research before making your purchase and avoid buyer’s remorse. In other words, know your options when it comes to your garbage disposal. The latest garbage disposals have options you didn’t even know existed.

We Stock InSinkErator Garbage Disposals, But We will Install Any One You Purchase

At Big B’s Plumbing, we carry the InSinkErator® brand of garbage disposals for our customers: the standard series, power series, and quiet series. The power series includes the Badger 1, 1/3 horsepower (HP), and Badger 5, their 1/2 HP model. They come complete with galvanized steel grind components and a one to three-year warranty. Next is their Badger 5XP 3/4 HP and Badger 1 HP; they feature power grind technology that can take care of the toughest food scraps, including peach pits.

When Purchasing a Disposal, Don’t Have Buyers Remorse

When making a purchase, homeowners consider this: Your garbage disposal will sit under your sink for ten to fifteen years, so don’t make an impulsive purchase. However, they are one appliance that won’t break the bank, maybe consider upgrading to the InSinkErrator’s Evolution® series. They come in five styles and only come in 3/4 HP and 1HP. 

Evolution Compact: Features 3/4 HP noise reduction, two-stage multi grind technology that will finish off even chicken bones, plus an eight-year warranty. It has the strongest alloy stainless steel components and a Leak Guard Liner. 

Evolution Cover Control Plus: Features everything above plus advanced noise reduction.

Evolution Septic Assist: Features everything above.

Evolution XTR: Features everything above plus a nine-year warranty.

Evolution Excel: Features everything above plus 1 HP motor, three-stage multi grind technology for the toughest food scraps, including bones. It also has the most advanced noise reduction technology, and it comes with a ten-year warranty.

Furthermore, the Evolution disposals are an impressive appliance to look at, and they come in different colors. You can choose from these popular designer colors: Brushed Stainless Steel, Matte Black, French Gold, Polished Stainless Steel, White, and Biscuit.

How To Choose The Right Size Garbage Disposal For Your Home

If you have a large family of four to five that uses the disposal a lot, then you’ll want a 3/4 horsepower motor. The Badger 3/4 HP disposals are a reliable choice, and the galvanized steel construction will take care of almost any food scraps. If you want to upgrade any of the InSinkErator Evolution Series, 3/4 HP will never let you down. This is one sweet garbage disposal. It comes with stainless steel blades and MultiGrind technology, and the SoundSeal technology will have your garbage disposal purring like a kitten. In addition, this disposal comes with a standard 8-year warranty. Considering how long our garbage disposals last, it’s well worth the cost of the upgrade.

Small To Medium Families 1/2 Horsepower Garbage Disposal

If you have a small family of two to three, maybe condo living or a small home with minimal entertaining, the Badger 5-1/2 HP continuous feed disposal is perfect for small to medium families. While we stock InSinkErators, there are other good-quality garbage disposals on the market that we will install. For example, Waste King Legend Series 1/2 HP continuous feed sound-insulated disposal is also a good choice. 

The InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 HP continuous feed garbage disposal only comes in 3/4 horsepower and one horsepower. Having this unit in a small to medium home would not be overkill, but it would be an upgrade. If you can fit it in the budget, take the plunge, and purchase the InSinkErator Evolution. You won’t be disappointed. Big B’s Plumbing has you covered for all your garbage disposal sales and installation needs. License #986152

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
