Garbage Disposal | ASAP Plumbing

Garbage DisposalThe garbage disposal may be one of the most misused appliances in any home. Few people realize that garbage disposals are only designed to handle light food residue that is rinsed from plates and cooking utensils before they go into the dishwasher. That’s why so many of ASAP plumbing service calls involve garbage disposal repair.

Large quantities of food and debris going into disposers can overwhelm them and clog the kitchen sink drain.

Looking to repair your garbage disposal yourself? If your garbage disposal hums but won’t operate properly, there may be a simple fix. Follow these steps:

  • Press the reset button located on the bottom of the disposer. If this doesn’t work, turn off the power switch and shine a flashlight into the drain.
  • Look for a foreign object such as a coin, plastic bread tie or staple.
  • Remove the item with pliers or a grasping tool. It is dangerous to put your hand inside a garbage disposal.
  • Look to see if your disposer has a hex key jam clearing tool under the sink or taped to the disposer.
  • Check for a slot at the bottom of the disposer where the tool can be inserted and turned back and forth to clear the jam.

Our technicians have the training, knowledge and tools to ensure garbage disposals are installed and operating correctly, saving our customers from future problems with their investment. Foul odors, compactors that won’t work, mishaps in installation – we’ve seen it all, and we know how to fix it. Put your trust in our expertise, and remember: your satisfaction is guaranteed with ASAP Plumbing.

I will never use another plumber ever after my experience with ASAP Plumbing. I had an emergency plumbing issue on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. My sump pump had overflown and there was water and sediment in my basement. Within an hour of calling ASAP Plumbing they had dispatched a plumber to my home. Not only was her able to quickly diagnose the problem and get the part ordered, but also the owner Keith Miller came out the next day to access the progress and make sure it was completed quickly. Keith also helped me work with the builder since our home was only five years old to make sure this was an isolated incident and explained what questions we needed to ask the builder. I would recommend ASAP Plumbing to anyone who needs a professional, reliable plumber

I just wanted to take a moment to applaud one of your service man, Shane. I recently found myself in the midst of a plumbing emergency in Parma, Ohio and I thumbed through the phonebook and randomly called ASAP Plumbing. I am so pleased with the level of service that I received! Shane was expedient, professional and thorough. He was also extraordinarily compassionate to my situation and he helped me to find the most effective and inexpensive solution for me. Shane went above and beyond, staying until after 9:00 p.m. to ensure that the job was not only completed, but that it was completed well. Of course, I hope that I will not need plumbing services again anytime soon…but I can assure you that if I ever do, I will be calling ASAP Plumbing and I will be requesting the services of Shane. He is a stellar representative for your company!

I wanted to thank you for all the wonderful work you did to solve my plumbing emergency. From the first panicky phone call to Karen, to the last shovel of dirt back into the hole, you folks handled my emergency and me with the utmost professionalism. I found your number on the spine of the phonebook at 10:30 at night and called after trying to get hold of my own plumber. I am so glad I did. I will recommend your company to anyone and everyone I come in contact with that needs a plumber. I was in the service industry for 35 years and it is rare to come across a company that provides the kind of service that ASAP Plumbing does. You should be very proud of all the great work you do. Thank you again!!!!!!!!

I choose ASAP Plumbing, not because they were the cheapest, but because their estimator Shane showed a genuine concern about the problem at my house and seemed extremely knowledgeable. My gut said he’d do the best job. No surprises! Shane was on time, did a great job, and even talked to my neighbors about their problem. He is a very good listener and a real professional without putting any other company down and knows what he is talking about. I was very impressed and pleased. Not only did he do a great job, but also he wrote his report very clearly so that I can include it with the documentation that will go with information about my house which is on the market. Thank him again for me. He’s the best and has a great future. Shane is a real asset to your company and a first class representative of it. You will always have customers as long as he works for you.

On September 16, my wife and I awoke to discover the sanitary sewer system failed causing sewage to back up in the floor drains flooding our finished basement. We called ASAP Plumbing. The crew was on site within the hour. They proceeded to scope the connection with remote television equipment; contacted and met with Medina County water crews to survey the main sewer line. It became clear the failure was with the house connection. ASAP Plumbing purged the line as best they could allowing us limited usage of the system until the line was properly replaced on September 21. We are very happy with the speed and efficiency with which ASAP Plumbing handled this situation. We would recommend ASAP Plumbing to anybody experiencing a similar situation.
