Garbage disposals are one of those plumbing fixtures that often go unnoticed until they don’t work. Some common problems with disposals are clogs, leaks, and motor malfunctions. While garbage disposal repair is possible in some cases, it is more common to have to replace the disposal altogether.
But, How Do You Choose the Right Garbage Disposal?
Most homeowners can simply replace like for like, but there are many different types of disposal to handle different needs of customers.
A professional plumbing technician is the best person to make recommendations when installing a new garbage disposal. They can ensure that the new disposal will have the right fit, have the features customers are looking for, and can determine if any electrical component is needed.

Bill Howe’s San Diego Garbage Disposal Installation
Every Bill Howe plumber has a standard Badger 5 disposal on his truck at all times. It is one of the most common displays installed in the community and fits most customer needs. However, we are happy to discuss what you hope to get from a disposal and ensure that we provide the right solution.
When calling to repair or replace your broken garbage disposal, our dedicated customer service representatives will walk through some of your options and even provide quotes over the phone.
When Bill Howe installs and provides the disposal for installation, customers receive a full one-year parts and labor warranty. What that means for customers is that if the disposal fails for any reason, we will come back out at no charge and install a new disposal. Customers should also register the disposal to take advantage of the manufacturer warranty period.
Our plumbing technicians can also install a disposal provided by customers, as many want to shop around for the best price and a product they know and want.
When installing a customer supplied disposal, Bill Howe offers a 30-day warranty on labor only. But if you choose an InSinkErator, you are still covered as long as you register your product. Just enact the warranty, and Bill Howe will come and install the replacement at normal labor rates.
How Much Do Disposals Cost?
At home stores, most Badger 5 disposals can be purchased for about $99-150. With Bill Howe’s additional warranty, with installation, customers are looking at approximately $325. The Evolution Series and other high horsepower heavy-duty disposals with quiet functions typically start at $300 and up just for the disposal.
Is it true I can Put Anything in A Quality Disposal?
This is where we disagree with InSinkErator. We recommend, as most plumbers do, to use disposals sparingly. Proper care and garbage disposal maintenance will keep it running long past its warranty and keep your drain lines clear.
While a high quality, high horsepower disposal can grind and push just about anything down the kitchen sink, it doesn’t mean it’s good for the pipes.
Most kitchen sink clogs are due to heavy grease buildup and food particles. So, scrape those plates in the trash and use the disposal for the small particles that are left. Run cold water while running the disposal and you can count on clear pipes and fresh smelling drains.
