Insinkerator

An Insinkerator is a brand name for an under sink garbage waste disposal.  They are designed to hygienically and instantly dispose of waste food materials, rather than leaving it in the bin, encouraging bad odours, bacteria and insects.

They help reduce greenhouse gases by a reduction in refuse being collected and transported to landfill sites.  Approximately 20% of all household waste is food waste.

At Pathfinder Plumbing we can both repair or replace your waste disposal unit

A standard 230v electrical plug socket is all that’s required under the kitchen sink (usually spare on dishwasher socket)

If you already own an insinkerator, here are some tips to help prolong it’s life.

  • Garbage disposal units can become stuck or seized, this can sometimes be caused by user error by non food items being placed or falling into the unit
  • Overfilling the insinkerator can cause the unit to jam.  Grease or fatty items should not be into the unit.
  • Insinkerators should never be run dry or with hot water.  Only cold water should be run whilst the unit is spinning.  Always completely clear the unit before stopping the insinkerator.
  • The unit should be equipped with a reset button either at the side of the unit (older models) or underneath.  If your unit fails to start after pressing the reset, then it is probably more than just a jammed disposal and you should call Pathfinder Plumbing and have one of our plumbers diagnose the problem.
