Why You Need a Waste Disposal Unit

A waste disposal unit is a small piece of equipment that is found underneath your kitchen sink. It is attached to the connecting drainpipe and serves the function of collecting up food waste that is then ground down before being sent out through the drainage. This plumbing feature is growing in popularity thanks to its ease of use as well as the range of benefits it provides. It is vital to have such a unit professionally installed due to the complex nature of its mechanics.

The unit is plugged into the nearest power source and fitted directly under the plughole of your sink. Any food waste from your washing will collect here while the surrounding water continues through to the drain. You can then switch the unit on, and a set of blades will chop the waste down so that it is small enough to enter your drain. This prevents large chunks of food that could potentially cause blockages from entering your pipes.

There are many advantages to having a waste disposal unit in your home. Using them means you’re less likely to require maintenance work further down the line. Some of the main benefits include they:

  • Are a lasting investment
  • Result in fewer pipe leaks and blockages
  • Save time
  • Protect the environment
  • Reduce kitchen odours

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
