Garbage disposals typically last up to 15 years. Depending on the age of your current garbage disposal, it can last anywhere from eight to 15 years. This is because older models were not designed to last as long as newer models.

The most common causes of a garbage disposal to stop working is worn-down blades or a burnt-out motor. Depending on the type of wear and tear to your system, you will either need a new garbage disposal installation or you may be able to get by with a few garbage disposal repairs.


The primary job of a garbage disposal is to shred any food waste in the drain of your kitchen sink so it doesn’t clog the pipes. In order to keep your garbage disposal running smoothly, it’s a good idea to run it regularly with running water and make sure it’s clean.


p>Food scraps are safe to be shredded by your garbage disposal as long as they’re biodegradable; keep in mind garbage disposals are meant to reduce the outcome of a clog should scraps of food make their way down your sink. Garbage disposals are not an alternative trash bin. The following items are considered safe in your garbage disposal:

-Citrus rinds these also work great to clean and freshen your disposal

-Coffee grounds but only in small quantities

-Egg shells these can help clean and sharpen the blades of your garbage disposal

-Fruit scraps

-Vegetable scraps


There are a few different ways to tell if your garbage disposal isn’t working properly. These problems may require a professional garbage disposal repair, but ongoing issues are a sign that it’s time to replace the system entirely. Keep an eye out for the following signs that your garbage disposal is malfunctioning or broken:


It won’t turn on.

If your garbage disposal won’t turn on, there could be a couple problems. Worse-case scenario is that the motor has gone out. A better scenario is that the circuit breaker just needs to be reset.

You have to reset it regularly.

Once in a while, having to reset your garbage disposal is okay. If you have to reset it on a regular basis though, there’s a problem. The issue could range from faulty wiring to general wear and tear on the system, but either way, it’s best to call a professional plumber for this type of garbage disposal repair.

It takes a while to break down food.

If your garbage disposal isn’t shredding food waste in your drain quickly, it isn’t doing it’s job. This slower breakdown speed is probably due to dull blades. Contact a plumber for garbage disposal repair and replacement blades.

It always smells.

A garbage disposal that smells — even after being cleaned — is harboring food waste and the odor it causes. A plumber may need to disassemble and reassemble the system to thoroughly clean it or they may recommend a new garbage disposal installation if the system is old.

It makes loud noises.

As your garbage disposal shreds up food scraps, it’s going to make some noise. However, if it’s screeching or squeaking while it’s on, the system could be off balance or the motor could be going out.


Depending on what the problem is with your garbage disposal, it may or may not be a good idea to pour Drano in your garbage disposal to unclog your sink. Pouring chemicals such as Drano can have negative affects in your plumbing cause much more of a headache than a clog alone.

Take a look at what the professionals recommend down below before purchasing a chemical drain cleaner.

Can I Put Drano in My Garbage Disposal?


The cost of a garbage disposal repair depends on how severe the issues are with the system and whether any parts need to be replaced. If you were to need a new garbage disposal installation, the system itself would cost around $200, plus any labor to install it.

How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Garbage Disposal?

    After calling many other septic tank companies, I found that none of them would come out on a Sunday. In my panic to stop the flooding into my house and not waste any more time, it was so relieving when you came out! Your technician arrived in no time after being called for help and he handled everything with expertise. He cleaned up all of the mess from inside as well as outside where there had been some leakage onto our yard. Thank goodness we have your emergency septic tank service because even though this is an unusual situation; every household should be prepared for emergencies such as these! Thanks a lot!

    We had a nightmare of an experience with our septic tank, so we called for some professional help and they actually came out to pump it! You have very nice people answering the phone. We really appreciated that when other companies would just hang up on us after hearing about what was going on. It's not easy being in an emergency septic tank situation, but these guys made everything go as smoothly as possible while still getting their business done right too! Thnx so much!

    I am delighted with this company. I called them on Tuesday and they were here by Friday morning, just like they said! They got the tank pumped out for me and replaced my broken sanitary tee too. Mike was totally professional and he even helped make sure everything else looked good before giving his approval to start pumping (he's a pro). Definitely recommended!

    We were at a point where we had to move out of our rental and wanted to leave the septic tank pumped before going over. We called these guys, who sent John to assess what needed to be done. It was an interesting experience for me; I learned more about tanks from him! He gave me some advice that really helped in this situation as well when it comes down to whether or not you should ever pump your own tank - DON'T DO IT!!!

    These guys are the best! I've used them twice (one for my parent’s house) and both times they were prompt, kind, professional, and reasonably priced. They're an absolute must if you want to get your septic tank system cleaned professionally at a very affordable price! Very good COVID precautions as well.

    I was looking for a company that could help me with my septic system and I didn't know who to call. Luckily, I found these guys! Their superb customer service paired with rapid response times makes them an absolute must if you’re looking for any plumbing needs (especially septic tank services) They pumped my septic tank in no time at all!

  • My septic tank maintenance was not only efficient but quick. We contacted High Speed Rooter & Plumbing over the phone and they knew how to give accurate solutions to our septic tank problem. They were fast on response and by coming to help us as well. Thanks to everyone involved in my requirement!

  • Can’t say enough great things about this company! Called at 7am and had a plumber out by 10am. Frank was my plumber. He was incredible!! I had a clogged pipe & Frank walked me through the steps one by one (cheapest to more expensive) to solve the problem. What I loved most about this company is they go step by step to solve the problem WITHOUT charging you for each step. We started with a free camera/visual inspection, then the snake which was unsuccessful, then the hydro-jet. The problem was solved & Frank showed me the pipes on his monitor to explain the problem. He also explained preventative maintenance steps. Mario was also great. He handled the hydro-jet & showed up within an hour once we realized we needed to be more aggressive. Overall, it was a great experience & Im glad I found this company!!!

  • Referred to us by my cousin who has used them in the past. Frank was very helpful and honest about the hydro jet we needed done at our house. Great customer service and reliable service. Will def use them again! Highly recommend if you need hydro jet service.

  • I will give them a 5 star cause they didn’t get my phone number right and were trying to call to reschedule me. But they accommodated me by rearranging there guys to come out the same day. Only because I don’t live there it’s my mom’s rental. Frank and two others came out to snake it and camera it. Job was done quickly they also showed me on the camera the roots in the sewage pipe that will eventually clog again. They gave me and estimate to fix the problem. They are very nice not pushy at all. I will use them again. I like to use family run businesses. Thanks for coming out today instead of me having to come back again.

  • High Speed Rooter was super helpful on our issue. Blas, our plumber came out, he was quick and easy to explain our problem and was super friendly as well! We thought we’d be paying more for a fix but was surprised by how low the cost of a clogged up pipe was. Definitely will be calling again for any of our plumbing issues.
    Amelia S.
  • We dealt with someone by the name of Frank. He came out and provided us with a competitive quote and decided to use their services to have our waterless tank replaced. He answered all my questions and or concerns that I had and went out of his way to assure we were satisfied with the service. I highly recommend them!

    These guys are great. They offered a free visual inspection and quote, so I gave them a try. The plumber was professional and helpful. He waited around with me and discussed what the problem might be, while my tenant was taking his sweet time on the toilet. In the end, he did a great job at a good price. I'll be calling these guys again if anything needs fixing.
