Waste Disposal Units

One of the main benefits of waste disposals is that food residues such as vegetable peelings and leftovers can be dealt with immediately. They offer a hygienic and environmentally-friendly solution and can usually cope with hard matter, such as bones. Waste disposal units are fitted under your kitchen sink or the sink in your utility room. Electrically powered, they liquidise all kinds of food waste in no time at all. This means you don’t need to put your waste food in a bin, which carries the risk of bad odours and bacteria. Waste disposals offer practical modern convenience, minimising household waste and helping to run the family kitchen. If you don’t already have one, you might be considering getting one fitted in your home or even in your business kitchen. Alternatively, you might already have a waste disposal unit that’s blocked, faulty or needs a service or a repair. In all cases, No1PHD is the company to call on to do a stellar job.

Professional installation and repair

Since waste disposals involve electrics and moving parts, they need to be professionally installed, serviced and repaired by a company that’s qualified in appliance installation. Unqualified individuals should not risk trying to install or repair these devices, which run at high speeds and involve hazardous moving impellers. These can present a serious risk of injury. If you already have a unit and it’s broken down, regardless of the kind of problem, you can rely on the professionals from No1PHD to repair it.

We repair all types of unit. Some of most common broken-down waste disposal issues include:

  • Blocked units
  • Jammed units
  • Burt-out motors
  • Leaks or faulty seals
  • Strange noises
  • Failure of the unit to drain

The technicians at No1PHD are qualified and equipped to deal with all the above and can visit you to diagnose the problem, give you a quote, then carry out the job in the shortest possible timeframe. Of course, if it turns out that fitting a new unit makes more sense, we’ll do this for you. If the issue relates to a blocked drain, we can tackle this too by getting to the root of the problem.

Different types of waste disposal unit

Typically, there are two kinds of waste disposal units. These are the continuous feed and batch feed disposals. Here’s a look at what each of these does:

  • Continuous feed

These units work via an electrical switch, which is installed in the region of the sink. When you press the switch, the grinder will run and pulp any waste inside the unit. When all the waste has gone, you switch the unit off. This makes the continuous feed unit an efficient and effective way of getting rid of scraps and leftovers.

  • Batch feed

This waste disposal tackles batches of food waste. You fill a chamber with your leftover food and then push down the plug. Turning the plug the switches the unit on. The batch feed is a very safe waste disposer as it won’t run without its cover in place. This means that small children cannot easily tamper with the unit.

The power of waste disposals

Disposal units that come with stainless steel blades to grind food are one of the best types. We can fit these for you as they’re more robust, less likely to corrode and will give your disposer a longer lifespan. Stainless steel impellers can easily grind through tougher food waste, which makes them a flexible and effective choice.

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.
