Today’s disposal models typically last ten years before needing to be replaced. If you have inherited one from a previous homeowner and think it’s struggling, consider these factors:
Motors – higher-end motors come with more quiet, inductive motors, ranging from ½ to 1 horsepower. Budget disposals are in the ⅓ range, are generally noisier and tend to wear out sooner.
Grind stages – ranging from one to three stages; the more stages a disposal has, the more expensive and more thorough the grinding. The higher the number of stages, the less likely it is to experience clogs.
Material quality – more expensive models will be manufactured from stainless steel for optimum corrosion protection, as well as built-in sound muffling. Budget-priced disposals are typically constructed from plastic or polymers and can be 50% noisier.Schedule Service
