Can I Install a Garbage Disposal Myself?

If you’re handy and you have the time, you can install your own garbage disposal. You can also do your own repairs if you know what to look for. That said, making a mistake here can be costly, time-consuming, and even dangerous.

Like all major appliances, you run some risk when going the DIY route with a disposal. Improper installation or repair of your disposal can potentially void any manufacturer or seller warranties.

Beyond voiding manufacturer warranties, you may also do damage to your pipes or nearby appliances. Then, you’ll need a professional to both install the garbage disposal and repair the added damage.
