We do these garbage disposal installations all the time and they have become second nature to us. That is not to say that a garbage disposal installation is always easy. They at times can be a handful because of all types of plumbing or electrical issues you can be confronted with. And I would not suggest that just anyone try to do such an installation on there own.
It is a combination of knowing something about plumbing, electrical, and let’s not forget Common since.. that sometimes get thrown out the window.
If you currently have a garbage disposal installed in your sink then you are in a lot better place than if you are installing from the start. Most garbage disposals are identical and will change out without much adjusting to the plumbing or the electrical. Try and take a good look at what you have before going out to pick one up so you know the new one is exactly what you need. If you’re new to garbage disposal, you won’t know that you should get it serviced every so often, to prevent it from clogging up. Luckily, websites like ineedtheplumber.com/garbage-disposals/ can tell you more about this.
Now if you do not have one at all you’ll need to buy one, if you’ve never bought one before you might not know what you’re even looking for, to give you a hand have a look at https://helpfulhabitat.com/best-garbage-disposal-reviews. Once you’ve purchased your new garbage disposal unit then you will probably need to rely on a qualified contractor to come in and handle this for you. And this is why.
You will need to have an electrician get the power down to the area where the garbage disposal will be powered. There will need to be a switch installed to cut the unit on and off. You need this done before you do anything else. Once this is in place you can move forward with installing the garbage disposal which will now require that you know a little about plumbing.
