Waste disposal units are a small appliance that’s fitted beneath the plughole of your kitchen sink. This utility is attached to the drainpipe underneath your sink and acts like a bucket of sorts for large chunks of food waste to be collected. The food you accumulate is ground down using the blades within the machine before being sent down your drain in much smaller chunks. Many homeowners are having this mechanism fitted thanks to its convenience and ease of use.
The disposal unit is powered by the nearest electricity source and suitably protected to meet all health and safety standards. Water will continue to flow through the unit as it would through normal drains, while any food that does not slip through the bottom sits in the utility. You can then turn the unit on at your convenience to breakdown the food inside before rinsing it down the sink. Having less dense food waste entering your drains vastly reduces the chance of any drain pipe blockage occurring.
Waste disposal units have continued to grow in popularity in recent years thanks to the many benefits they offer homeowners. As well as helping to prevent blockages in your drainage system, some of the other advantages these units provide include that they:

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.
