Portsmouth Kitchen Waste Disposal Unit Installations

Households produce huge amounts of waste every week so it makes sense to create a provision in the drainage system for all that waste. Waste disposal units are small machines that grind the household waste into a pulp before flushing it down the drainage pipe. No1PHD has experienced plumbers who will install the units in your house and save you the trouble of keeping mountains of refuse and carrying it to the recycling depots. For more information, call us on Portsmouth, 01425 208031

How waste disposal units work

A waste disposal unit comprises a bowl and a waste grinder attached at the bottom of the bowl. It is often set up next to the sink. When you have waste in the house, you put it in the bowl instead of a dustbin or a waste disposal bag. Once it is there, switch on the grinder so that it can ground the waste. The ground waste flows into a discharge pipe that connects it to the drainage pipe of the sink. From there, it is easy for the wastewater to wash it down the drain.

Types of waste disposal units

There are two major types of waste grinders. The first type has rotating blades that shred the waste into small pieces that resemble paper strips. These types of shredders are very noisy and are not very effective in pulping the solid refuse because the waste can still block pipes. The second type has a grinding wheel with a serrated edge that cuts the waste tiny bits. This type of grinder is very effective in disposing of solid waste and can handle tough objects such as fruit seeds and small bones. A basic test of the quality of a grinder is the amount of noise it produces; the quiet ones are more effective than the noisy ones.

Installation of waste disposal units

The installation begins by setting up the bowl next to the sink. Once it is in place, our expert plumbers can remove the strainer and replace it with the disposer flange. We can then puts the gasket, the mounting rings, and the secure it in place around the flange. Our waste disposal installation technician can then attach the disposer by rotating until it is firm. We can then connect the drain lines and the dishwasher if it is part of the setup. After that, our plumbing expert can install the circuit including the air switch and the remote control so that it is ready to use.

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.
