My garbage disposal just took a dump where do I get a replacement? A garbage disposal gets replaced every 10 to 15 years, and I’ve heard some of them lasting even longer. Like all appliances, if you take care of them properly, you’re going to get plenty of years out of them. It can be very confusing when making a garbage disposal purchase. You have 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 3/4, and one horsepower, models. You can purchase one for $50, and go all the way up to $600 with all the bells and whistles. Before walking into your local hardware store, know what you want before you start shopping. 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.
Evolution Compact 3/4 HP 2617 5-Star Reviews
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 garbage disposal is a reliable choice and comes with galvanized steel construction. It also has a three-year in-home warranty and costs around $125 without labor or cord. If you want to upgrade, you can get the InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 HP Continuous Feed garbage disposal for an extra $75. This is one sweet garbage disposal; it comes with stainless steel blades and MultiGrind technology. It also has the SoundSeal technology; it purrs like a kitten. This disposal comes with a standard 4-year in-home service 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. It costs around $100 without a cord or installation. 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 the 3/4 horsepower and one horsepower. Having this unit in a small to medium home would not be overkill, and again your upgrade would cost $100; all other costs including installation would be the same. So 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
