Southampton Waste Disposal Services

Waste disposal units add a level of ease and convenience to food preparation—not to mention the cleaning up process afterwards—that may seem like an extravagance. But this appliance can actually be considered a money-saving purchase when weighed against the potential cost of blocked sinks and drains further down the line. If you would like to ensure your kitchen—be it at your home or business in Southampton—runs smoothly with a brand new waste disposal unit, or you have an existing one that is need of servicing or repair, call No1PHD on 08006906777 and speak to one of our specialists.

What is Waste Disposal?

Waste disposal—also sometimes referred to as garbage disposal—is an appliance that is installed below your kitchen sink and connected to your sink drain. It then chews up scraps of food that happen to get flushed down the drain, ensuring that large pieces do not clog it up and cause a sink blockage. Understandably, faults with waste disposal systems need professional attention. At No1PHD, we have a team of such professionals who can deal with your waste disposal problems so you can carry on using it without a worry.

What Problems Might a Waste Disposal System Develop?

One of the most common problems likely to be encountered with a waste disposal unit is the accidental dropping of items that you don’t want disposed of. It’s happened on screen many times; a wedding ring or precious heirloom gets lost in the drain. It turns out that it doesn’t just happen in the movies. Obviously, with an appliance that consists of sharp cutting edges that are intended to chop up food, you do not want to put your hand in there to fish anything out. Other problems you may encounter include dulling blades and items not meant for waste disposal getting lodged in the mechanism and jamming the blades. In these cases, or any other problems you may have, simply call No1PHD for assistance.

What Kind of Sink Can a Waste Disposal Unit be Installed In?

Waste disposal units can technically be installed in any sink where there is space for the unit underneath. However, there are other things to consider beyond pure space. Your waste disposal unit will need a power supply, which in turn will require a qualified electrician to install to legally regulated standards. There is also the size of the drain to consider. For particularly narrow drains in smaller sinks, it may be best to avoid the temptation to put anything other than water down the plughole to avoid blockages. For larger sinks, especially in kitchens that see a lot of use, such as restaurants or houses with a lot of people living in them, a waste disposal unit is a thoroughly recommended piece of equipment. If you’re unsure whether your sink is suitable, talk to one of our experts and they will be able to give you advice based on your specific circumstances.

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.
