Big B's Your 1st Choice for Garbage Disposal Installation

Need a garbage disposal installation company? Big B's Plumbing has you covered. Like most households in America, your garbage disposal is one of the most used appliances. Unfortunately, without much warning, our appliances will eventually break down if not replaced ahead of time. Most of us haven't done our research on the different types of garbage disposals. When we start our search, the cost will range from $100 up to $250. How do we know which garbage disposal is right for our home? There are a couple of things to consider when making a new garbage disposal purchase. First, it will last 10-15 years, and second, since it does have such a long lifespan, consider upgrading to a nicer model; you won't regret it. The latest garbage disposal technology has more grinding power; there much quieter, and they look better than the old disposals. 


As a rule, a small apartment or condo could get away with 1/3 horsepower (HP), but it's our recommendation never to use less than 1/2 HP. Three to five people living in a home should use a disposal with 1/2-3/4 HP. For six or more people, a 1 HP is the recommendation. Of course, these are all recommendations and not necessarily a rule. What it boils down to is how much you'll use your garbage disposal. Some families will entertain more than others. Whatever the case, we can guide you through the selection, ensuring you have the right garbage disposal for your family. We want to be your first choice for your Garbage Disposal Installation.


When purchasing a garbage disposal, select one that has stainless steel impellers. Stainless steel impellers are harder and will last longer. They will also grind the food more finely. If you have a dishwasher, make sure your garbage disposal has a dishwasher attachment. Doing this will allow any food from the dishwasher to flow into the garbage disposal, where it can be ground down and rinsed away. You should also consider other features like noise level. The quieter the disposal, the better. Make sure your garbage disposal has a reset button on the unit. It's a good idea to have a corrosion protection shield on it. The shield will give your garbage disposal a longer life expectancy. It's critical to have your disposal correctly installed.

Garbage Disposal Review And More

Disposers may last up to ten to fifteen years, and with the latest advancements shopping for a new replacement might be difficult. Most households are acquainted with the two primary styles types of garbage disposals, batch feed, and continuous feed.  Batch feed grinds food in batches, but continuous feed grinds food as it continually delivers it to the disposal.  However, some technological distinctions have an impact on durability, performance, and functionality.

More Suggestions on What to Consider When Purchasing Your New Garbage Disposal

1. Type of Motor

 Permanent magnet and Induction motors are the two different kinds of motors. The majority of disposers employ induction motors, which are comparable to those used in big home appliances like dryers, furnaces, and washers. These motors are quieter and have a strong, long-lasting motor life. A permanent magnet motor is a portable, variable-speed motor similar to small appliances like blenders, hair dryers, and power tools. They often operate at higher RPMs, although they perform best under lighter grinding loads. Remember, Big B's Plumbing is your garbage disposal installation company.

2. Horsepower 

Disposer motors come in a variety of horsepower ratings, from 1/3 to one and a half horsepower. Disposers with more horsepower can often grind larger loads more easily, extending the motor's life. Therefore, you should consider greater horsepower models for larger households or families that do a lot of cooking. See More Below

More to Consider When Buying a Garbage Disposal

3. Grinding Levels

Disposers will have 1, 2, or 3 grinding stages. Here are the variations:  

 Stage 1: Food gets ground only once in many disposals; this is the single step of grinding before going via drainpipes.

Stage 2: These disposals grind food twice for a finer grind. Food waste is nearly liquefied in the second step of grinding, which makes it possible to process a wider variety of challenging food scraps. Additionally, it lessens the likelihood of obstructions or jams.

Stage 3: The three-stage method offers the best grind and lets you grind virtually any food waste, even fibrous or difficult materials, without having to worry about blockages or jams. Even cooked rice grains and rib bones may be broken into tiny bits with these powerful machines. After your garbage disposal purchase, you'll need a garbage disposal installation company to make the perfect installation, call Big B's Plumbing today.

4. Substrate Materials

The most often used materials for grind chambers as well as grind parts are stainless steel, galvanized steel, and plastic. The majority of disposers have grind chambers made of thermoplastic polymer, which helps them withstand rust and corrosion. Stainless steel, on the other hand, provides excellent corrosion resistance that lengthens disposer life. Although galvanized steel is a resilient material, it may corrode or rust over time.

5. Noise Intensity

Although many homes get used to their noisy garbage disposal, with the latest cutting-edge sound technology, you can lower noise levels by thirty to sixty percent. Consider purchasing a disposer with sound insulation and noise-reduction technology like noise-reducing baffles, anti-vibration kitchen sink mounts, and anti-vibration tailpipes.

Take Good Care of Your Garbage Disposal

Some may have heard that you can sharpen the blades of your disposal by pouring ice down it and turning it on. This is a myth because your garbage disposal does not have blades; it has impellers or teeth that grind up your food at high speeds. Unlike most appliances, your garbage disposal won't require much maintenance, but you can that some safeguards that could extend its lifespan. 

Here are some ideas:

  1. Only use cold water when running your disposal; this will help prevent clogs.
  2. Don't put potato peels, celery, artichokes, eggshells, coffee, corn husks, banana peels, or grease down your disposal.
  3. You can extend the life of your garbage disposal by composting. The compost is plant and garden-friendly. Collect your food scraps in a canister with a lid. Your food scraps can provide excellent compost and will preserve our landfills.

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...
