Garbage Disposals

We service and repair garbage disposals of all brands.

Is your garbage disposal not working anymore? Is it clogged, dirty or has an odor?

Garbage disposals are a great way to dispose of food left overs and provide us with a convenient way to clean our dishes.

Unfortunately a lot of people treat the garbage disposal as “jaws of life” and use it for all kinds of disposal purposes. Egg Shells are one of the hardest things on your blades even though they seem so fragile. Running your garbage disposal without water in another way to damage the effectiveness of your garbage disposal and will make build up of grind and dirt even more.

We services all makes and models of garbage disposals from 1/3 horse power the 1 full horse power…If you ever get a bad smell coming from your disposal it is recommended that you grind a lemon in the disposal to eliminate the smells. Also you can grind ice cubes inside of the disposal to help sharpen blades to grind food.

Drain Masters Plumbing can repair or service your garbage disposal for you to make sure it serves you for many more years to come.

Can It Be Repaired Or Is It Time For A New Garbage Disposal?

If your disposal has some age on it or is not sounding the same, it may be time for a major repair or a new disposal altogether.  La Mesa, Pacific Beach, La Jolla,  El Cajon, Santee, Rancho Bernardo, Encinitas, Carlsbad, or San Marcos and need help with your garbage disposal?  Give Drain Masters Plumbing a call.  In the meantime, here is how yo may be able to tell if your unit is repairable or if it is time to retire it.

What Can Be Fixed

It can be very disheartening to hearing a loud humming noise instead of the usual spinning sounds of your disposal’s blade.  However, this situation could in ways be a good thing.  Although garbage disposals are built to handle an enormous amount of wear and tear, they can get clogged.  When this occurs, the kick-off switch is activated so as to preserve the motor from burn out.  Typically, cleaning out the disposal and resetting restores it to normal function.

What Should Not Be Fixed

We have come across disposals that leak water, either at rest or while running.  These situations are telling signs of significant part wear within the disposal.  In our experience, we find that repairing a unit by replacing parts is not an economically viable solution.  First, the parts can be expensive relative to the cost of a new unit.  Second, typically if internal parts have worn to the point of replacement, the warranty is usually expired.  Consequently, it is easy to understand why most lean towards buying a new garbage disposal.

Sometimes you have time for DIY plumbing projects, sometimes you do not.  If you find that you fall into the latter group, give Drain Masters Plumbing a call.  Our team fixes small things like garbage disposals and large plumbing system problems.  (619) 346-4212

    Just received the BEST SERVICE EVER from the friendly members of DRAIN MASTERS PLUMBING. Total damage was at least $200 cheaper from all the other places I called. The service was EXCEPTIONAL from the very helpful and pleasant dispatcher whom I spoke with to the actual service man ( Zeke) who came out to do the repairs. I will definitely be using them again and telling all my friends about this company !! 🙂

    Drain Masters Plumbing was the best experience I have had with a plumber. I was helped by Zeke during a very traumatic time. My toilet riser had malfunctioned and when I awoke the next morning, the bathroom was flooded and my living room was flooded. The responded quick and had the problem resolved within an hour. I appreciated the way they took care of me and I recommend them to everyone with similar issues.

    I called several plumbing companys for estimates to replace garbage disposal and cable kitchen line. Zeke showed up and gave me free estimates. I chose Drain Musters Plumbing Company, because he arrived on time and explained to me exactly what needed to be done with best price. So I scheduled another appointment to install new disposal. Again he showed up on time and installed new one and cleaned kitchen line. He is very quick, efficient and does great work. I recommed this company for plumbing needs. He said that they are family owned and BBB accredted. Thanks Zeke!.

    Drain Masters was professional, timely and courteous. Zeke arrived at my house within 30 minutes of calling (on a Saturday) and was able to fix a rather intricate problem that a previous drain company had told me could not be done without literally cutting my pipes! Thank goodness I trusted my instincts and called Drain Masters for a second opinion. Within 45 minutes, the problem was fixed and for less than 1/3 the price the other company had quoted. I highly recommend Drain Masters and will use them again if ever I have another issue.

    We just used Drainmasters for a camera inspection of our (soon to be short-sale purchase) sewer line as we were worried about possible root-intrusion. Good news is that everything came up clean. Zeke showed up on time and was a complete professional. I'm pretty comfortable performing basic plumbing jobs myself and Zeke was more than happy to walk the property and show me some possible issues. He comes across as very knowledgable, extremely personable, and HONEST. He is also the owner of this small business so he's willing to go the extra mile. I know I will call him again anytime I have something I'm not comfortable doing. This is a good man that deserves your business if you are looking for a plumber.

    I have used them repeatedly for so many plumbing issues. I swear no matter the time of day you call zeke, and he is just there. My grandmother owns 3 rentals and 2 of them had eroded pipes, sewer backed up, all in all a complete stress...but zeke and his team of professions do jobs so fast and accurate you'd think I was full of it. He made sure our tenants were able to use there plumbing while the pipes where being replaced, which if you have renters you know you just saved on the hassle and the money of setting them up in a hotel. Zeke is very informative and lets you see the issues at hand. This company is so helpful not with just getting the job done, but helping you, for an example...we had sewer water all underneath one of our rentals do to a busted pipe...he took the initiative and got a hold of a company to depose and clean all of the hazard waste, we didnt have to look in the phone book and call some one up and wait from them to get there, by the time i arrived at the property zeke was there with the people who clean the waste, and got down to work. My grandmother has own these properties for over 50 years, and plumbers before this have been a joke compared to this company, i would NEVER use anyone else then zeke and his team.

    As my last plumber up and moved to Montana I needed to find a new one to unclog a shower drain.. I looked in the BBB phone book and picked Drain Masters who came in January and did a fine job with that. When I recently heard a leak in the other bathroom, I knew whom to call. Drain Masters did a reroute of the hot water pipe which was leaking in the slab. Job was done quickly and professionally. I am totally satisfied and would highly recommend Zeke and his crew if you have plumbing problems.

    I recently had two major floods in the crawlspace beneath my house only 8 days apart. I contacted Drain Masters because the plumber offered by my insurance company couldn't fit me in for two days even though I didn't have water service. Drain Masters responded within a couple hours and was able to patch the pipe, restore water service and return 36 hours later to make the bigger repair. They were timely, professional and reasonably priced so of course I called them right away when I discovered the 2nd leak. Again, Drain Masters arrived within hours. This time I had them replace all of the old style pipes with copper to avoid a 3rd disaster. They coordinated with my insurance agent, finished the work in one day and gave me a great warranty on their work. I've never had a really bad experience with other plumbers but I definitely had mediocre experiences that left me wondering who I would call the next time something happened. Not this company! Zeke was responsive, knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly. I would not hesitate to refer Drain Masters to anyone I know in need of a plumber and they have gained a customer for life.

    Zeke and his employees were so great! We were having problems with our shower and toilet clogging up and had another company come out about 5 times in 5 months. All they did was snake the drain and leave. Not Drain Masters. Zeke genuinely wanted to help fix the problem so it never happened again. He was professional and very honest about the situation in regards to pricing. I'm glad my landlord had this company come out to do the job because they were very friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks so much Zeke!

    Zeke came out today and hydro jetted my mothers backyard drains. It took them quite sometime to clean out the 40 yr, solid dirt packed, root filled drain lines. But they did it!!! No more backyard floods next winter. Thank you Zeke

    We had a problem with our sewer pipe gushing water right before leaving on vacation. When we returned, the plumber who was supposed to be out last Thurs was a no show. I saw the ad for Drain Masters, gave them a call and Zeke was here within a couple of hours and very efficiently and quickly did a major repair and had us up and running. The best part besides his very professional and polite manner was the reasonable price! I definitely recommend this company 🙂

    I live in Otay Ranch, Chula Vista and had a kitchen sink clog. First off, The boss at Drain Masters was able to schedule a appointment to come out to my house the next day. Great fast service. Highly Recommended. Appointment was from 9am - 11am and George showed up at 8:55am. George is one of their plumber techs. He did a very fine job. Cleaned up after himself even though he didn't make much mess and had a very positive attitude. He was able to fix the clog and took care of everything. Very professional.

    Ive been using Zeke for years now. Never have I been disappointed. He is extremely nice and accommodating. I had to reschedule with him a few times and he would even come by late in the evenings for plumbing emergencies. Never has he ripped me off, actually quite the opposite, he will give me certain discounts and is willing to have payment plans. He also gives great advice and at home tips. I use him and highly recommend using his services if you live in the area. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Zeke at Drain Masters Plumbing was fantastic. We needed a new toilet, and he installed it professionally while also cracking some jokes...because I mean. come on...toilet humor is funny. 🙂
    When I called my landlord about some problems with our toilet, Zeke was over within 2 hours. We set up an installation date and time, and once again he was early. An installer early?! I don't know about you guys, but usually I'm waiting around all day for them. It was so nice to be done with the install and have the rest of our day. He also cleaned and disposed of everything so we didn't have to. I'd highly recommend these guys for any of your plumbing needs. Expect prompt courteous service with a smile.

    Thank you Drain Masters for coming to our rescue!  We wouldn't call on anyone else to help us with our plumbing needs.  Reliable, knowledgeable, trustworthy, fair and honest.  Don't do it yourself, call the experts!

    Zeke stopped by looked at our toilet bowl. Knew the problem and cleared out the BLOCKED Septic tank with a power snake, reinstalled the bowl, and cleaned the floor clean enough to eat off of. The drain actually never flushed this well in years. I recommend this company not just because of the reasonably great price, but for the quality and craftsmanship showed. I will refer Zeke to any one who needs a great plumber. ~ Robert

    WOW!!! Very impressed by the service I received from George from Drain Masters!!! He arrived 15 min early, diagnosed our problem in less than 5 min and had us all fixed up within the hour. There are no after hours/weekend fees, so the cost was EXTREMELY reasonable AND the work has a 30 day warranty! THANK YOU George!!!!

    Zeke and his crew were awesome. My 93-yr-old mother needed to replace all the cast iron pipes in the house (from 1948)! Needless to say, an overwhelming proposition and only one bathroom in the place. Zeke's crew were courteous and showed us what was needed or going on every step of the way. They even gently took up and replaced her strawberry plants. At the end of the day, pipes replaced, old pipes removed, stuccowall repaired, Zeke took broom and dustpan to make sure the place was clean and ready to use. These guys are my plumbers for life!

    It started with a simple phone call asking a question about a procedure.  I lucked out and got the owner on my first call.  We made a great connection and he truly was a problem solver and not just a "salesman".
    Zeke and his team showed up promptly, worked diligently and resolved my issue. Super friendly, honest and knowledgable.    I felt really comfortable in the fact that Zeke wanted to put the needs of his customer first and do what was right for the situation.  He has my business from this point on!
