Continuous Feed and Batch Feed Disposals: Which Type of Garbage Disposal Should You Install for Your Clearfield, Utah, Home?

Most homeowners are used to and often opt for continuous feed garbage disposals. This is the most common option and the more convenient to use. Continuous feed disposals are easier on the budget and offer easy operation, making them a popular choice for the majority of homeowners.

If you’re looking for safety over convenience, you may want to consider batch feed garbage disposals. This option requires a drain cover to be put in place before the disposal will start running. Batch feed disposals are often pricier than continuous feed devices, but if you are after safety and efficiency, batch feed garbage disposals may be the right option for you.

Our Clearfield, Utah, plumbers will help you find and install the best type of garbage disposal device for you based on your needs and budget.

Garbage Disposal Repair Versus Replacement in Clearfield, Utah

A garbage disposal problem can cause a disruption to your daily routine. But when is it time to replace your device versus simply having it repaired? 

If your garbage disposal is leaking, jammed, or blocked, we can typically carry out a repair to help extend the life of your device. Our goal is to provide the most cost-effective solution for our customers. But if you have an older device (over ten years old), and your disposal is experiencing recurring problems, a full replacement might be the more practical option.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to Thurgood Plumbing & HVAC for honest advice and recommendations, and to have your garbage disposal installation needs carried out to the highest quality.

FAQs

Garbage disposal installation in Clearfield, UT, often encounters issues such as incorrect wiring, leaks, and compatibility problems with existing plumbing. Many homeowners might struggle with wiring the disposal correctly if it’s not plug-in type, which requires electrical connections that match the home’s wiring. Leaks are usually due to improper sealing at the sink mounting flange or mishaps in connecting the drain lines. Furthermore, the physical size of the disposal can interfere with existing plumbing or cabinetry, requiring adjustments for proper fit​​.

To ensure successful garbage disposal installation, homeowners should start by choosing the right type of disposal for their needs, such as continuous feed versus batch feed, which have different safety and operational features. It’s important to gather all necessary tools and installation components beforehand, including plumber’s putty, pipes, connectors, and a wrench for securing connections. Following the manufacturer’s instructions precisely is crucial, as is ensuring that all seals and connections are tight to prevent leaks. Testing the unit thoroughly after installation for any operational issues is also recommended​​.

Regular maintenance is key to prolonging the life of a garbage disposal. This includes routine cleaning with dish soap and cold water to prevent odors and build-up of food debris. Homeowners should also run ice cubes through the disposal to sharpen the blades and clear residual food inside. Additionally, it’s important to avoid putting hard or fibrous materials down the disposal, such as large bones, celery, or corn husks, as these can damage the blades or cause clogs. Regularly checking for leaks and promptly addressing any unusual noises or poor performance can prevent larger issues​.

Homeowners should consider replacing their garbage disposal if it frequently jams, makes excessive noise, or experiences repeated leaks despite repairs. Age is also a factor; disposals typically last about 10 to 15 years. If the unit is nearing the end of this lifespan and repairs are becoming more frequent or costly, it might be more economical to replace it. Upgrading to a newer model can also offer more efficiency, better grinding capability, and lower operating noise, which can be beneficial for frequent kitchen users​.

    My sewer ejector pump broke. We couldn't shower, use the toilets or any type of plumbing. It was horrible. I called around and some of the other companies, after they saw the job, did not want to take it on because it is more complicated than your average sewer pump. I called Thurgood Plumbing and they got a plumber out the same day. They rearranged their schedules to fit me in and started the job the next afternoon. It was greatly appreciated because we didn't want to have to go several days without plumbing in the house. The job took way longer than expected and two other plumbers came to help get the job done! Shout out to Rocky, Kevin and Todd! They did an excellent job, were super friendly and stuck with the job until it was done at 9:30 p.m. on a Friday night! That is what I call dedication and great customer service! Thank you Thurgood Plumbing!!

    Had a water leak in my ceiling appear out of nowhere. Called Thurgood in the morning and it was fixed by 4:00 the same day. Kevin was our plumber and he was amazing. Hard working, respectful of my home, able to diagnose the problem quickly. Repair was made and Kevin explained and showed us what had happened (a pipe and fitting had failed). I also received bad health news about my dog while Kevin was here. He was so kind to express his concern and sympathy and spent time "talking dogs" with me. Was very comfortable having him in my home. Everyone from the scheduler to the supervisor to the plumber were professional, kind and concerned. Also changed out the expansion tank on my new water heater, that the previous plumber didn't do. Would hire them again.

    Charles Holzwarth
    Competent Tech, great work, done in a timely manner that reduced the amount of overall water damage. Kinda pricey, for the parts and labor required, but inline with today's other service contractors. 👍
    Tristyn
    Kevin Scoville at Thurgood plumbing did a fantastic job!! I got a free consultation and they did a very thorough review of everything before giving me a quote. They gave me multiple options on my services and let me know what would need to be looked at exactly. While the other plumbing companies wanted to open the wall and replace the whole water valve, these guys took the time to search for the parts needed for replacement and made it waayyy cheaper!! Kevin was super friendly and wanted to help in anyway possible!! They truly are the friendly plumbing company!!

I will be happy to refer everyone I know to Kevin and all those I had the pleasure of speaking with at Thurgood Plumbing!

    Our service guy came out for a clogged sink and also noted that our water heater was really old (we just purchased this house). We talked about getting the heater replaced and the costs for doing both jobs and had everything done super quickly! The tecchnician was here on time and had everything needed to complete the job and also was able to haul off the old water heater. I was really happy that he took the time to check out not JUST the clogged sink, but also the system in general. Super happy to do business with these folks and will do so again the next time I need a plumber! Highly recommend!

    Thurgood sent me Gusto Dutson and I am delighted that they did. He arrived exactly on time, was polite, calm and reassuring as I explained what I thought the problems were (I know nothing about plumbing terminology). He assessed the situation, explained to me what the actual problem was, and began work immediately to resolve it. Competent, capable, reassuring, nice — Gusto is now my go-to guy for all things plumbing!! Thank you, Thurgood, for sending him my way!
    Mandy Mae
    Service was quick and excellent! Thank you

    Karen Kinnaman
    We had recently received some catastrophic and devastating news regarding our main sewer line and were in shock as we had received a rather Doom and gloom prognosis from two different plumbing companies.I decided to fill out a form online and request diagnosis and bids from other companies.Daran was the first to respond by phone the next morning representing Thurman's plumbing. I gave him a brief description of the issues and he set up an appointment for later that day and arrived on time.Daran brought with him the necessary equipment to examine the situation. Daran offered thorough and detailed prognosis and some options that he would present to us along with various quotes for our options.When Daran was finished with the appointment we felt comfort along with a relief of the stress we were encountering due to the circumstances. This attribute of Daran's was greatly appreciated by us.I give Daran a five-star review because I would definitely recommend Daran @ Thurman's plumbing for his excellent service.
    Susan Freestone
    I highly recommend Todd Snyder for any plumbing work you need done. My toilet was leaking into my basement and I did not have a functioning shut-off valve in my house. First of all Todd came across as an excellent communicator and very personable. He gave me HONEST and detailed descriptions of the things that needed to be done. He had good dexterity as he was working in small, tight spaces, (my crawl space), which would be difficult and uncomfortable for most people, but Todd did it with ease. Also, a big part of the job was being able to multitask, which seemed to come easily for Todd. I was amazed at his problem-solving skills and how he helped me trim the cost down while not skimping on excellent quality service. I was also impressed at his ability and desire to go the extra mile. He unclogged my faucets for free and gave me good advice on ways to keep the waterworks in my house running properly. He also double and triple checked over his work to make sure everything was done correctly and to my satisfaction. Do not hesitate to hire Thurgood Plumbing, and don’t forget to ask for Todd. 🙂
    Frank Hembree
    Daran did an awesome job and very polite. He explained everything to me. I would recommend your company to everyone I know.

    I highly recommend Thurgood Plumbing! My sewer pipe cracked. Daran came right away. He was very reliable, on time, worked into the night (outside in the cold). He kept me informed of the process and explained everything so I could understand. He was very pleasant during the 3 day job. I will definitely call Thurgoods again if I have more plumbing issues.

    Corinn Ross

    Thurgood plumbing came today to install a bidet in my house. I had arranged it with a different one of their plumbers, who removed my toilet so I could do some painting, etc. The young man who came today willing tracked down the ordered bidet, missing parts, fixed a valve and installed the bidet. Totally happy!
