What To Look For When Buying A Garbage Disposal

We see many brands of garbage disposals in Apopka and Florida which one is the best garbage disposal for your money. When purchasing a garbage disposal there are a few important things to look for. The first is to make sure on the bottom of the unit there is a slot to put an Allen key to un-jam the disposal. In the event you drop something in the garbage disposal by accident your Apopka plumber can un-jam it. Some of the cheap disposals have no place to put a wrench in it to un-jam it making it harder for your plumber to fix it. Sometimes you have to replace it just because there is no spot to put a wrench.

The next thing in choosing a disposal is the horsepower and we at Drain Genie Plumbing suggest staying away from 1/3 hp they tend not to be strong enough for grinding the waste properly. The best unit for the price is 1/2 hp it is still reasonably priced and is strong enough to do the job once you go up to 3/4 or 1 hp. The cost jumps up a lot but obviously the higher the horse power, the better the grinding power, the better the unit. The brand we like the best for the cost is Badger which is made by Insinkerator which has all the features discussed in this article.
