It is extremely difficult for businesses who depend on their kitchen to function without a sink disposal unit that works. The disposer prevents clogging in the plumbing system as it chops up food waste into smaller pieces before it passes through the drain pipes. Unfortunately, commercial garbage disposers are often unequipped to handle the amount and type of food fed into them on a routine basis. Also, there are times when silverware, straws, dishcloths and other non-food items find their way into the disposer, causing damage in the unit and requiring professional repair service.
LA Metro Plumbing experts can be relied upon to repair, replace or install any type of commercial garbage disposal, from light duty to heavy duty models. Food service establishments, hospitals, nursing homes, schools and hotels simply cannot afford downtime in their kitchens. We are here to help, keeping our plumbers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to jump in when you need us and get your disposal working again—fast and professionally.
If you find yourself facing a damaged or blocked up disposal, it is imperative to have it repaired as quickly as possible. By doing so, you reduce the chance of a clogged drain or a complete plumbing system backup. Specialists from LA Metro Plumbing can repair most every brand name and size of commercial garbage disposer, getting it back into service for many years. Common disposal repairs include:
- Leaks – worn out seals allow waste and odors to seep out, causing health concerns and/or unsafe and wet work areas.
- Jams – excessive food or items such as silverware prohibit motion of the blades
- Humming – burned out motor or impeller
- Nothing happens – the unit may need to be reset and/or the connection needs to be evaluated
- Won’t drain – the unit may not be chopping food properly and waste may have clogged and backed up the drain pipe
LA Metro Plumbing will install a new unit, or replace/upgrade existing units, by making all the proper connections between the unit, the power source, and the plumbing system. The technician will also make a recommendation, based upon your needs and budget, as to what unit will be most efficient.
Commercial garbage disposals come in many different makes and horsepower models, ranging from light duty units to more powerful 10HP heavy duty models. Disposers can be single phase or three phase, and can be mounted to a sink, floor, or dish table. In general, most disposers require electricity to operate but some are powered by water pressure. Some businesses require a simple 1HP waste disposer while others might need a complex disposal system to suit their larger-scale needs.
Light duty models are normally utilized in fast food restaurants, convenience stores, delicatessens, and office kitchens. Schools, hospitals, and medium-sized restaurants usually need a medium duty model. Large restaurants, hotels, factories, and kitchens that handle hard-to-grind foods or large amounts of waste continuously will call for heavy duty units. LA Metro Plumbing will help you explore and understand your options.
