Keeping Greater Binghamton Garbage Disposals Running Smoothly

You may not realize it, but in addition to adding convenience for homeowners, a well-functioning garbage disposal serves an important role in your home’s overall plumbing system. A poor quality garbage disposal can even decrease the lifespan of your other plumbing fixtures. Because of this, the modest cost to install a high-quality garbage disposal and perform periodic maintenance on it is well worth the money.


Garbage disposals use centrifugal force to continuously force food waste against a stationary grind ring – liquefying it. This process assures the full breakdown of waste to prevent the blockage of the main sewer line. When a garbage disposal breaks or is simply not performing optimally, food particles can build up in the pipes, eventually resulting in serious clogs that are expensive to fix.
