Scotch Plains Plumbing Repairs

When you think of Scotch Plains plumbing repairs, you may not initially think of garbage disposals.  But, if you have a garage disposal and something goes wrong, a plumber is the one you’d want to call.  If you’ve noticed a leak, identifying a little more about the situation may help you know how to fix the problem yourself or better know what the repair options are before calling a professional.

Scotch Plains Plumbing Repairs – Garbage Disposals

First, be sure you know a little about the anatomy of your garbage disposal.  In all disposals, there are essentially four different places a leak can occur.   They are:  the sink flange, the dishwasher connector, the drain piper, or the garbage disposal itself.  The first, the sink flange, connects the top of the garbage disposal to the bottom of the sink drain.  This is probably the most common place to find a leak.  The second, the dishwasher connection, is the one which usually has a rubber hose connected to the disposal on the side.  The drainage pipe of the system will probably have a metal or plastic pipe that funnels water and food away from the sick into the sewer.  This place also has some chance of leaking.  And the last is the actually garbage disposal unit.  So believe it or not, three times out of four, the leak of your garbage disposal is not really from your garbage disposal at all.

Next, you will need to identify the source of the leak.  First, dry the outside of the garbage disposal and the sink flange so you can easily find any new moisture or wetness from the actual leak.  Placing a stopper in the sink will allow water to fill in order to better identify if the leak is coming from the sink flange.  If after a few minutes the disposal under the sink is still dry, it is not coming from the sink flange.  BUT, if you notice the leak, you have identified the problem!  At least initially.

If you know that the sink flange is not the source of the leak, because under your sink is still dry at this point, remove your drain stopper and watch closely around the disposal. At this point you should be able to see where the dripping is coming from, either the dishwasher hose, the drain pipe, or another part of the disposal.  Hopefully it will be pretty clear.  Depending on where the leak is will depend on what is the appropriate fix and if it is something you’d like to try on your own or not.

Determining whether or not to attempt a do it yourself fix on your garbage disposal is completely up to you and your comfort level with pluming repairs.  If you have any doubts at all, consider calling a local professional who specializes in plumbing, heating and cooling (like Good Tidings Comfort!).  While fixing a leaky sink flange can be pretty easy, repairing a cracked seal in the garbage disposal itself may mean it’s time for a new garbage disposal.  Check with a local professional to be sure you are making the right repairs in the right places and not just prolonging the inevitable!

Good Tidings is one of the most professional companies I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Always prompt, clean and have done outstanding work on multiple AC installs, as well as, general plumbing. My most recent experience was with Matt and Joel who installed a new AC unit in our home. Excellent techs and great product. In addition Brian performed work on our furnace with great results. We called for service and they were there the same day. Outstanding company that I would recommend to anyone!

Brian was great with assessing the problem, fixing it and then cleaning up. I had 2 separate clogs (main in basement and 2nd floor bathtub) that he was able to fix. Overall, services were priced on the higher side, but money well spent for the A+ service provided. Recommended.

We had excellent service from Good Tidings! Our air conditioner broke during the hottest week of the year. We had another company come in, charge us, and tell us nothing was wrong but it was still broken. Thankfully, Good Tidings came in and within an hour was able to tell us exactly what was wrong and fix our air conditioner! They did an excellent job explaining everything and talking us through reasonable pricing options. We'll definitely be using them again!

Excellent same day air conditioner service in the middle of a heat wave! They found an electrician to help with the problem who was also reasonably priced and had the air on by the end of the night! Steven stayed till 8 pm to b sure the air was fixed and running correctly
