What size garbage disposal do I need for my kitchen?

Figuring out the right size for your kitchen’s garbage disposal depends on a few things including:

  • Your family size and how much food waste your kitchen deals with
    • If you have a big family or your kitchen often has a lot of food leftovers, you might need a strong and bigger disposal unit
    • If your household is smaller or your kitchen doesn’t produce a lot of waste, a regular-sized disposal should do the job

The power and motor size of the disposal should match the amount of work you expect it to do. It’s important to think about these things and check the product details to make a smart choice, making sure your garbage disposal meets your kitchen’s needs.

Why is my garbage disposal making unusual noises?

Should your waste disposal exhibit peculiar sounds, it may signify an array of underlying concerns. Culprits often involve:

  • Foreign objects such as utensils or rigid objects in the disposal
  • Weathered blades
  • Loose internal components

A course of action to resolve the issues involves promptly deactivating the garbage disposal and inspecting the apparatus for visible hindrances. Should the issue endure, enlisting professional help is advised to rectify the matter, thereby preventing potential harm to the disposal unit and ensuring its optimal functionality.
