Whether you currently have an existing garbage disposal or you want one installed for the first time, All Star Plumbing can handle this plumbing job for homes in the Ballston area including Glenville, Scotia, and Round Lake, NY. We install ½ horsepower, ¾ hp as well as 1 hp disposal models. We are more than happy to help you decide on the appropriate model to meet your household demands.
Garbage disposals are available as continuous feed as well as batch feed models. Continuous feed garbage disposals are those that have a power switch that you turn on and off to control the power of your disposer. A batch feed disposer has a special strainer that you put inside the drain and acts as a key to turn the unit on. Generally speaking, a continuous feed is good if you have large amounts of waste to grind, but the manufacturer recommends running water while the power is on so if water is an issue as in some rural areas, this would be a matter to consider. Batch feed is good for smaller amounts of waste and does offer added safety since foreign objects cannot fall in the disposal while it is running.
Garbage disposals can make your life so much easier when it comes to doing the dishes and cleaning up after meals. Rather than having to put food into the garbage can where it will begin to spoil and smell, simply send it into the food waste disposer, grind it up and wash it away.
