We tend to take our garbage disposals for granted. But when our devices stop working properly, we quickly realize how much we depend on it every day. The trash can may start to fill up much faster than usual, the kitchen drain might clog up, and you might notice lingering odors coming from your drain.

When to Repair or Replace Your Garbage Disposal
Our experts will inspect your device and let you know whether repair or replacement is more cost effective.
Common problems affecting garbage disposals include:
Other common issues include units that get clogged or jammed. These problems are easily repaired. We often recommend garbage disposal repair to our Buford and Dacula customers if their unit is still under warranty.
However, older units that experience repeated problems may be due for a replacement. Repair will simply be a short-term solution, and the problem will likely return or worsen.

Selecting the Right Type of Garbage Disposal
If you’re in the market for a new garbage disposal, we can help you choose the right device and make sure it’s installed properly.
But first, you will need to decide on the type of garbage disposal you would like to install: continuous feed or batch feed. Both types are very different when it comes to convenience and function.
Continuous feed garbage disposals are more common. Your device is most likely continuous feed. You simply need to turn on your power switch and the device will continue to run until you switch it off.
What’s great about it: You can drop in as many food scraps as you want without interruption. Continuous feed devices are easy to use and won’t break your budget. Since they are the more common type of garbage disposal, you will have many models and options to choose from.
Factors to consider: Since continuous feed devices will keep running until they’re switched off, you will need to be more cautious around the sink while the unit is on and make sure you don’t accidentally drop utensils, jewelry, or other important items.
We recommend continuous feed garbage disposals for homeowners looking for the best value. Continuous feed devices are also ideal for homeowners who like to cook and have a lot of food waste to grind.
Batch feed garbage disposals are significantly different from continuous feed devices. They can only be turned on when the drain is covered with a dedicated stopper. And once it’s running, you can’t add any more scraps until that particular “batch” is complete.
What’s great about it: If you have small children, you may find batch feed garbage disposals a safer option since the drain is always covered when the unit is running. There is also less risk of ruining utensils or other items that fall into the drain.
Factors to consider: The unique operation of batch feed garbage disposals means they cost much more than continuous feed devices—in some cases they are double the cost of their continuous feed counterparts.
We recommend batch feed garbage disposals for homeowners who prioritize safety over ease of use. Batch feed units are also a great choice for households that don’t have too much food waste to grind on a daily basis and don’t mind the additional steps needed to operate a batch feed device.
