Garbage disposal systems are designed to be reliable and long lasting, which is why homeowners often fail to identify any plumbing problems in these systems.
By the time plumbing issues are identified with these appliances, the leakage has already made the cabinets underneath the sink all soggy and moist. This results in a foul odor in the kitchen, damage to the wooden fixtures, and of course, water puddles near the sink. This isn’t just unsightly, but also very unhealthy because you prepare what you eat in your kitchen!
Attempting to fix a garbage disposal on your own can be quite challenging, especially if you haven’t fixed a leak or garbage disposal before. It’s better to let a professional plumber deal with the leakage for several reasons ; here are a few of them.
Accurate Identification of the Source of Leakage
There can be several causes of a leaking garbage disposal and spotting the right source can be very difficult for someone with no experience. For instance, you may think that the sink flange has come loose and that’s the source of the leak; however, the real culprit could be a broken seal that needs to be replaced.
Let’s take another similar situation: you see a water puddle right below the drain pipe and you’re certain that it’s because of the cracked drain pipe. You purchase a new drain pipe and attach it to the drain hose—and to your surprise, it’s still leaking! Here, a professional could tell you that the problem was the grip of the hose that connects to the garbage disposal.
You could have saved that money you invested in purchasing a new drain pipe had you taken advice from a professional plumber!
