Insinkerator Repair and Replacement
It can sometimes be a problem managing food waste. There are a few schools of thought related to this problem - either to bin it with your normal weekly rubbish or separate it for the food waste collection service, both of which are services offered by your local council. Food waste as another option can be composted if you're a keen gardener/grower.
On the other hand, you may want to manage food waste in a different way? Installing an Insinkerator, commonly known as a waste disposal unit is another way to manage food waste effectively. It is a handy kitchen appliance capable of reducing food waste into fine particles, virtually liquifying them which helps prevent clogging of the pipes. It then ends up in the waste water treatment plant. If you have a separate septic tank adding waste to it may increase the times it needs to be emptied, so something to consider?
If you already have one fitted but isn’t efficient/powerful enough or in need of repair or replacement then contact serviceteam Ltd. Our services extend across the length and breadth of London and surrounding areas. Our qualified tradespeople are nearby 24/7.
If you require a quotation contact us via email with pictures of the unit and a description of the fault. Alternatively, call us directly and speak with one of our dedicated team members who will be able to advise. We can then arrange a suitable time and day to visit to undertake the works.

Should you install an Insinkerator
You might be thinking why should you install an Insinkerator when you can easily dispose of food waste? Well, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill helps the environment enormously. Once buried in a landfill site it naturally breaks down (over time) producing methane, a nasty greenhouse gas. But if it’s recycled, food waste can be turned into a plant fertiliser and even a source of renewable energy (depending on how it’s treated). A few points below to consider:

Q: Do Insinkerator waste disposal requires daily maintenance?
A: You’ll be happy to know that unlike many home appliances that are constantly in use, you won’t have to put your Insinkerator through any regular maintenance or servicing. Just keep spotless and clean smelling!
Q: What can I put in a disposal unit?
A: You will be advised by the manufacturer what can and can’t be safely disposed of in the insinkerator. We recommend you adhere to these guidelines to prevent any mechanical issues. Every appliance has its limitations, so be mindful of the type of waste you dispose of. If unsure always refer to the manufacturers operating manual.
Q: Clean It Regularly?
A: Food waste can accumulate inside the disposal unit over time, which can result in unpleasant odours. Just follow these simple steps to keep your unit sparkling clean:
Q: How noisy are Waste disposal units?
A: Waste disposal units come with different sizes of motors.
The size of the unit and its HP rating is often linked to the family size. As a rule of thumb, one would assume that the bigger the family the more waste is produced? A small family could manage with a ⅓ or ½ HP motor. A medium sized family of 6 a ½ to ¾ HP motor. A larger family would probably benefit from an HP rating of ¾ to 1 HP. The higher the HP rating will determine the noise produced. Thankfully, the unit is not in continuous use throughout the day and only used in short bursts?
Serviceteam Ltd can install any Insinkerator depending on the family needs just call and we will advise..
