5 Tips to Avoid Holiday Plumbing Emergencies

Anthony's Plumbing

December 24, 2019 - Tuesday


For many people, this is their favorite time of year.

Not so much, though, when you’re ankle deep in water or frantically trying to think what could be causing your clogged drain.

Before your guests arrive for the holidays, be sure you’re equipped to avoid a plumbing emergency and enjoy the festivities without a hitch. Check out these 5 tips to avoid a holiday plumbing emergency.

1. Clear your drains.
Your drains are soon to be consumers of more than you think. If you want to be sure they’re in working order, consider having them cleaned before your beloved guests arrive. Installing a simple drain strainer in your sinks and showers will ensure debris won’t get stuck in your pipes and save you from having to unclog the drain or deal with a plumbing emergency. Wouldn’t you rather be partaking in your holiday outing?

2. Keep an eye on your garbage disposal.
Certain foods are a recipe for disaster for your garbage disposal. Whether you’re husking corn or looking for a dumping place for extra grease or oil, the garbage disposal is not the place. In fact, your garbage disposal can only handle so much, and the consequences of throwing even the slightest amount of unwanted items down your drain can cause quite a stir. Choose the trash bin instead.

3. Be conscious of shower times.
Unless you’re planning to tape off your bathroom doorway or invest in an “out of order” sign, your guests are going to want to shower at some point. Ask them to allow a 15-minute resting time between each person so your drain and water heater can catch up. If running out of hot water is a frequent problem in your household, perhaps it’s time to invest in a tankless water heater. If that’s something you are interested in, contact us and let’s talk. 

4. Invest in extra trash bins.
Toilet clogs are the last thing you want to deal with when there are guests in your home and the festivities are in full swing. Get some extra trash bins and place them in the bathroom and kitchen to be sure unwanted items aren’t being disposed of in the improper way. Place one near the toilet so guests won’t be prompted to use the toilet as a garbage can and cause a plumbing emergency.

5. Leak Detection
Leak detection is important before having guests over for the Holidays. You guest bathroom may not get a lot of use, and therefore may not be up to the challenge of Holiday entertaining. Also, you may be unaware of any plumbing issues that might exist if you never use the guest bathroom. Before your loved ones arrive, it is better to inspect your guest bathroom for any leaks. Look under the sink, check the shower, and look around the toilet. Make any necessary repairs before people get there to prevent any unnecessary leaks.

Although you can take precautions to avoid a holiday disaster, sometimes a plumbing emergency strikes when you least expect it. That’s why Anthony’s Plumbing is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to solve your plumbing needs. Our punctual plumbers are experts in drain cleaning and emergency plumbing, as well as any other plumbing services you might need. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and ensure your plumbing is in proper working order.

How To Make Your Own Drain Cleaner at Home

Anthony's Plumbing

December 3, 2019 - Tuesday


Is your home filled with clogged drains? Did you know you could fix most of them by spending less than ten bucks in easy to find materials?

Most of the labels on drain cleaners in the store can make you feel dizzy with all the scientific terms. Good news for you, though: there’s a whole DIY community that has made it easy to unclog a drain yourself.

If you want to save money on drain cleaner and learn a bit of chemistry along the way, keep reading for the tips you need to know! 

When you are making DIY drain cleaner, it’s best to have a stable list of ingredients that you can afford monthly. Start by researching the baseline supplies for the drain cleaner you want to make, then adjust your list to your needs and your budget. Here are the basic ingredients that you’re likely to need:

Baking soda is one of the best store-bought solutions for drain cleaning. Composed of sodium carbonate, baking soda is full of sodiums that help break down dirt and grime. You can buy baking soda almost anywhere and because of its low price you can buy it in bulk.

Baking soda is reactive, meaning that if you add an acid (such as vinegar) it will become excited. This compound can jostle and break down grime that’s built up in your drain.

The trick is starting with sodium. This means you can use salt or Borax instead of baking soda just as well. Anytime you combine a sodium base with an acid you will get a halfway decent cleaning solution.

You can think of Borax as a concentrated form of baking soda. It contains a few extra chemical chains that make it a cleaning alternative and not a cooking formula. If you decide to use Borax make sure to keep it away from any sensitive body parts, children, or pets.

Acids are your key to a positive chemical reaction. When you add any acid, even one mild as lemon juice, to sodium, you get a reaction capable of cleaning your drain. If you want to unclog your drain, find a multipurpose acid that you can buy for cheap.

Vinegar is a great acid for your drain cleaning mixture. You can add it to any of the sodiums listed above to get quick results.

Lemon juice is a weaker acid that works just as well. However, lemons have less acidity than vinegar, meaning you will have to add more lemon juice than an average drain cleaner recipe.

Cream of tartar is less another option that is derived from tartaric acid. This makes it a viable acid that you can add to baking soda and water to get a great cleaner.

The general rule applies: when you add a weak salt base with a strong based acid you will get an acidic solution. Accordingly, combining medium-strength salts and acids will leave you with a fairly strong compound.

Adding sodium and citric acid will give you carbon dioxide gas. Don’t worry, adding the right amount of both creates enough reaction for drain cleaning. It will not cause you harm.

Now you know the cheapest and most simple ingredients for homemade drain cleaner. For this section, we’ll be talking about how to mix and apply your ingredients to your clogged drain.

First, get all of your ingredients in the right order. For example, you will always add your sodium before you add your acid solution. You might have some blockages at the surface of your drain, clean these out before moving forward.

Begin by pouring your sodium solution to the drain. Remember, you can use any of the contents listed above. If you choose to use a powder like baking soda, you can use a funnel to pour it down the drain.

This fills your drain with the base to your draining reaction. It makes a foundation for your acid, leading to the dissolution of gunk and grime.

Now it’s time you add your acids. You can use any of the acids presented in this post, just make sure to always add them after your sodium. Doing any of these steps out of order will make the process useless.

After you add something like vinegar or cream of tartar to your powdered sodium you must wait up to one hour. It’s advised that you plug your drain while you wait.

Add a pot or two of boiling water to your drain. The hot water has an easier time passing through your drain and pushing the dissolved gunk through.

To recap: add your powder sodium and acid then pour a pot or two of boiling water down the drain.

This will work for almost any drain you have in your home. If you are dealing with a larger drainage system you might want to buy a professional solution or call us at Anthony’s Plumbing for help.

There’s no question that DIY home repair can be a pleasing experience. After all, it’s your home so why can’t you be the one to fix it?

After reading this post you are well-equipped to unclog your sinks and bathtubs using a homemade drain cleaner. The formula is simple and most importantly, everything on this list is cheap.

Still, sometimes a drain is harder to fix than with baking soda and vinegar. In cases like these, it’s best to hire a professional.

If you can’t do it with store-bought items, try contacting Anthony’s Plumbing by calling 909-823-3807. Your next step is exactly that, start a dialogue with a pro and get your house back to its old self!

How Does a Slab Leak Happen?

Anthony's Plumbing

November 1, 2019 - Friday


Have you noticed your water bills are on the rise, but there’s no real increase in water usage in your home? If that’s the case, there could be a leak in the slab under your home. Knowing what causes water leaks can help you be more aware of how to maintain your pipes, and if there is ever an emergency, you’ll know exactly what service to ask for when you call us. Creaking, bending, or bubbling floors, along with the smell of mold or mildew are also common signs that there is water leaking in the slab foundation throughout your property. These concerns aren't just costly, they could be putting the structure of your home at risk.

Slab leaks occur in different ways. A water leak could be causing the concrete foundation to crumble, or the soil around the foundation to moisten and give way, reducing the support the foundation has to keep the home in place. Our experts at Anthony’s Plumbing are able to target the leak, repair or replace the pipe, and inspect the water meter and surrounding pipes to look for other water concerns.

If there is a problem where water comes from the city pipe to the house, trenchless repairs may be necessary. You’ll want to have the slab examined if the leak was going for a long time without notice. The longer the leak goes without repair, the more potential there is for damages to all the structural materials throughout the house like the house frame.

As soon as the signs of a slab leak are noticeable around the home, take action and contact a professional from Anthony’s Plumbing to service your home. That way you can restore your home quickly and get back to life!

In Case of Fire

Anthony's Plumbing

October 24, 2019 - Thursday


With the Santa Ana winds upon us, there are fires flaring up everywhere, it seems. As a home owner, or a small business person, what do you need to do in the event of a mandatory evacuation [like the one they had this morning]? 

A very real concern for the safety of your family and home or business is to make sure you turn off the gas to the kitchen, laundry room and water heater. 

Gas Supply to Your Water Heater
All gas appliances have a separate shut-off valve, and it’s usually found within a few feet of the appliance. To find the gas shut-off valve on your water heater, simply look for a single handle, which is usually located near the bottom of the unit.
To turn off the gas, turn this valve clockwise. If you can’t get the gas valve to turn or can’t find the gas valve, then you may need to trust that the second option will do the trick, which is when you turn off the gas to the whole house. 

Gas Meter Shut-off Valve

As with the water heater’s gas shut-off valve, the gas meter shut-off valve is also relatively easy to find. It should be right next to your gas meter, which is found on the exterior of the house. The gas valve is on when it’s parallel to the incoming gas line. To stop the flow of gas, the valve needs to be turned a quarter-turn so that it is perpendicular to the gas line. Once completed, the gas line is closed and the flow of gas is stopped. Usually, this valve can only be opened and closed with a wrench, so make sure you have one handy.
If you are having trouble turning off the gas supply to the water heater or if you have any other questions or concerns, call your local gas company or you can call us 24/7 at: 909-823-3807.

When you Get the All- Clear

Once you have the okay to return to your home or business, turning the gas back on and relighting the pilot lights is relatively easy. An important note: If you have any questions at all, please call us. Safety, when dealing with gas appliances, is very important. The first thing you'll want to do is turn on the gas on your outside gas meter. Once the gas is on outside,return to your water heater and open the shut-off valve by turning it counter-clockwise [to the left]. Next, turn the gas regulator valve's knob to “Pilot,” press down on it and hold it down. This starts the flow of gas to the pilot burner. On some water heater models, you press and hold down a separate red button to start the pilot burner gas flow. Once the pilot light is restored, go to any of your sinks and test the hot water to ensure it is working correctly.

Your Other Appliances

While we don't work on dryers, or gas appliances in kitchens, if you turn off the gas, for whatever reason, it is important to be careful and know what you are doing when you restore the gas. Most dryers today have an electronic ignition, so restoring gas will be a matter of turning on the shutoff valve. If your dryer is from before 1994, or if you are unsure, please contact your gas company for further help. Dryers from before 1994 usually had a pilot light, but relighting it will vary from model to model. The same applies to the appliances in your kitchen that use gas. If the appliance uses a pilot light, it will need to be re-lit, but please consult your gas company or other service professional before you proceed. If you have any questions, please call your gas company first, or you can call us at 909-823-3807.

Did You Know That Traditional Water Heaters Need Cleaning Too?

Anthony's Plumbing

September 30, 2019 - Monday


Did You Know That Traditional Water Heaters Need Cleaning Too?
Every day, the typical family or business relies on their water heaters, but too often we forget about the maintenance necessary to ensure that they are functioning properly and that they last as long as possible. For those with a more traditional water heater, one important part of hot water heater maintenance is cleaning and flushing out the tank. Water heater flushing helps to clear out sediments and minerals that build up. Doing this routinely will extend the lifespan of your water heater, help it work more efficiently, reduce the risk of clogs in your pipes and make your water heater safer. Given the importance of hot water heater flushing, today we’ll talk about some of the basics of this process so you can make it part of your maintenance routine.

When is Water Heater Cleaning Best?

Sediment and minerals naturally build up in your water heater over time. This is an inevitable part of the process of using your water heater and, as long as you regularly flush it out, this won’t lead to problems. However, if you don’t clean it out regularly, this buildup can create problems for your hot water heater and other plumbing systems throughout your home. We recommend that you clean your hot water heater at least once a year. An annual water heater flushing will help to keep your unit running properly and to help it last as long as possible.

Signs That it’s Time to Clean Your Water Heater

While you’ll want to clean your water heater at least once a year, there might be times when you need to clean it more often than that. Being aware of those signs will help you avoid a plumbing issue and avoid causing damage to your water heater. If you find that you’re getting less hot water from your tank, if you see sediment in the drain valve or if you hear a banging or rumbling sound from your water heater, it’s likely an indication that your water heater needs to be cleaned. If you notice any of these things, you should clean out your water heater as soon as possible.

When it’s Time to Install a New Water Heater
Even with routine maintenance, at some point, you’ll have to replace your water heater. Recognizing when you need to do this can help you avoid an outage, a plumbing emergency and water damage to your home. The average water heater lasts for about 10 to 12 years. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, you’ll want to be especially aware of any issues and address them as soon as possible. If you’re getting warm, but not hot water, if you’re getting cloudy water, if you hear banging or rumbling even after cleaning your water heater or if there’s rust in your water, it’s likely time to replace your hot water heater. If you see any of these signs, it’s best to have your hot water heater inspected. Recognizing when it’s time to replace your water heater could save you from some major plumbing headaches. We hope these tips will help you stay on top of your hot water heater maintenance.

And, if you haven’t recently done so, take a moment to check your water heater to ensure that everything looks, sounds and works properly. If you notice any problems or need to have your hot water heater serviced, or if you want to upgrade to a tankless water heater, call Anthony’s Plumbing today at (909) 823-3807.

Clean Your Drains The Green Method

Anthony's Plumbing

September 27, 2019 - Friday

Whether it’s food particles and grease in the kitchen or hair in the bathroom, your drain is bound to get stopped up from time to time. Traditional drain cleaners are filled with toxic chemicals that can corrode your pipes and be harmful to your health. Anthony’s Plumbing has a few simple tricks to keep your drain flowing smooth while also being sensitive to the environment, and your wallet.

Bring roughly a gallon of water to a boil and slowly pour it down the drain, careful not to flood it. This is great for grease clogs and soap scum because the boiling water turns the solidified oils back into liquid and washes them down the pipe. For a little more power, add some salt to the boiling water before pouring.

You’ll want to unravel a wire hanger with needle nose pliers to create a slight hook at the tip. Feed the hanger down the drain, wiggle around all edges of the pipe, and pull it out. Clean the hair off and do it again, rinsing the drain with boiling water every so often.

Clearing a stubborn kitchen or bathroom sink calls for a different approach – the plunger. The suction force of the pull is just as important as the flushing force of the push. Take care while plunging the kitchen sink as the unit does not have much support beneath.

When plunging the bathroom drains, make sure to remove any stoppers beforehand. If you are experiencing difficulty in creating a tight suction, apply petroleum jelly to the rim of the plunger for an airtight seal.

If these household remedies don’t fix the problem, it may be time to contact a professional. Anthony’s Plumbing is trained in diagnosing all your drain and pipe issues, no matter how big or small. Call us today at (909) 823-3807 or visit www.AnthonyPlumber.com online for more information.

Need Local Plumbing Services?

Anthony's Plumbing

September 22, 2019 - Sunday


Need Local Plumbing Services?
Few people ever think they’ll have no choice but to call local plumbing services in Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, Rialto, or anywhere in the Inland Empire, for that matter. Even though plumbing is a crucial part of our homes and business offices, most people rarely pay any attention to it until there is some sort of plumbing emergency.  The problem is when something unexpected happens, few people have planned for what to do to address the emergency. Unfortunately, left with an expensive problem to fix, people worry about costs and whether or not they can rely on the plumbing company they call. 

In the end, we all undervalue local plumbing services until we really need their help. The article below will explore the importance of local plumbers. If you need to speak with the best rated local plumbing service in the Inland Empire, Los Angeles or Riverside areas, contact Anthony’s Plumbing for help.

Importance of Hiring a Licensed Plumber
People will often turn to unregistered or unqualified plumbing contractors in an emergency in an attempt to save money. Unfortunately, hiring unlicensed, cheap plumbing repair services will leave you more exposed to problems in the future and can often cost you even more in the long run. Simply put, mistakes happen. In the event a plumbing repair is poorly done, you will end up being the one having to pay for any damage and future repairs. Why leave yourself vulnerable? Instead, look for professionally licensed plumbers in the area. Though it’s true that you can’t always anticipate a plumbing emergency, it’s important not to hire the cheapest plumbing services you can find. Though it may be a stressful and time-consuming search, the effort you put in will be critical to gaining a successful outcome and keeping yourself protected. 

Finding Local Plumbing Services You Can Trust
So, how do you find a reputable, licensed plumber in the local area? Perhaps the easiest way is to use the internet and do a quick search for ‘plumbers near me’. It’s also helpful to ask people you know for referrals. Still, if you want someone that is reliable and 100% guaranteed, you should take some additional steps and ask the potential plumber some questions. When considering local plumbers, you should create a list of questions to ask them. This will help to ensure you are going with a knowledgeable, experienced option. The first question should be whether the plumber is going to charge anything for the initial plumbing repair assessment. Plumbing estimates should always be free of charge. Next, it’s important to determine that the plumbing company is legitimate. Ask the plumber to provide you with proof of their license and insurance. This is for your protection and can help to eliminate unlicensed plumbing contractors from taking advantage of your emergency.

Anthony’s Plumbing has been helping people with their plumbing services for over twenty years. If you look at the reviews we get from our clients on Yelp, you will see a consistent image of the quality and care we provide when we come to your home or business. Our goal is to fix it right the first time at an affordable price and leave you with the comfort of knowing that you have found someone you can trust. Ultimately our goal is to be your plumbers for life. That is no easy task, to live up to a reputation like that, but we believe that when you call us, you deserve the very best. Whether it be something as simple as drain cleaning, toilet repair or faucet repair, or maybe you need a more advanced procedure like hyrdo jetting or tankless water heater installation, or maybe even garbage disposal repair, whatever the call is for, we aim to serve with the ultimate professionalism. If you need local plumbing services, give Anthony’s Plumbing a call. You’ll be glad you did.

Quick Solutions to Plumbing Problems

Anthony's Plumbing

August 29, 2019 - Thursday


Have ever experienced a flood in your kitchen or bathroom? If so, there’s no doubt that you know how quickly plumbing emergencies can ruin your day. Anthony’s Plumbing offers 24/7 emergency plumbing services, but after you give us a call, you may wonder how to protect your property from further damage before we arrive at your door.


If water is rushing onto your floor, you want to stop it as quickly as possible. Here’s how:

1. Locate the main water shut-off and turn the water off.
2. Find the problematic fixture’s isolation valve to shut it off completely.
3. Turn off your gas hot water heater to prevent a burst.
4. Turn on outside faucets to redirect water to the outside.

By following these steps, you can get the flow of water under control before you try to clean up the mess.


During plumbing emergencies, you may not have all of the tools you need to repair a pipe, if you have any at all. The fact is, with a few simple items, you can temporarily protect your home from a leak before help arrives. Use Teflon tape or epoxy to quickly seal a damaged pipe. If you don’t have these available, wrap a towel around the leaking pipe and spread more towels around the area to soak up as much water as possible. You can also use a bucket, trash can or even a cooking pot or large pan to catch drips and protect your floors from damage.


Plumbing emergencies can be scary and stressful. We totally understand that. After you take the preventive actions listed above, take a deep breath. If you stay calm, you can be better able to tend to your belongings and prevent further damage to your home. Anthony’s Plumbing helps with all kinds of local plumbing problems, no matter how serious they may seem. From slab leak detection to tankless water heater repair to clogged drains to broken faucets to garbage disposal repair, we've done it all over the last twenty plus years. Give us a call at 909-823-3807, and you can rest assured that we will come to your aid as quickly as possible.

Leak Detection

Anthony's Plumbing

July 31, 2019 - Wednesday


Ever walk into a room in your home and there's a new lake that wasn't there before? Leaks can come from a variety of sources in or near your home. The older the pipes are, the less effective they become. If your system is aging, it may be at a higher risk of leaks. In addition, hard water, consisting of minerals and other rough materials, can eat away at the pipes and cause a small rupture to occur, leading to a leak. Depending on the material of your pipes, rusting can take place. If the rust problem is significant, it can weaken your pipes and the very pressure from the water can cause a rupture. 

It is important that you find the cause quickly because leaky pipes are actually dangerous. Water that seeps out of pipes can cause a major flood, if left unattended. When the flooding is over, you are left with severe damage and mold growth. Mold is toxic to humans and animals and can cause serious respiratory problems after a few weeks of heavy exposure. Along with serious health problems, wet, slippery floors can lead to falls and other issues like bacterial infections. If your pipes are leaking, it’s wise to seek a leak detection service provider [like Anthony's Plumbing] to spot the exact location of the leak and mend the problem immediately. 

When clients call us, we know that every leak is different, so we look for different signs of where the leak may be originating from like odor or sounds. Using high quality, high-tech tools, we are able to find a wide range of leaks in your home that vary by size and condition. Once we locate the source of the leak, we measure it and determine a way to fix it. With over twenty years of plumbing services experience, we are experts at finding leaks and repairing leaks, no matter where they may be. People call us when it comes to leaks because, to be honest, most leaks are not something that can be fixed by wrapping duct tape around it. Generally, fixing a leak requires a professional, and that's where we come in. 

For those of you who are looking for plumbers in my area or plumbers near me, the good news is that Anthony's Plumbing services the entire Inland Empire, San Bernardino County, as well as the Los Angeles and Riverside areas. If you have a leak that needs to be repaired, we are here 24/7 for emergency plumbing services. We service both residential plumbing and commercial plumbing clients, and financing is available [on approved credit]. 

Have questions? Just give us a call at 909-823-3807 or you can check us out online at: www.anthonyplumber.com. With over twenty years of plumbing experience, we are still family owned and operated. For a local plumbing company you can trust, call Anthony's Plumbing today.

Plumbing Services

Anthony's Plumbing

July 24, 2019 - Wednesday


For over twenty years, Anthony's Plumbing has been providing plumbing services throughout the Inland Empire, the Riverside and the Los Angeles areas. But with all the over-the-counter plumbing solutions available, why do people call a plumber these days? How hard can it be to clean a drain, after all? Don't they sell plungers and Drano and Liquid Plumber to pretty much anyone who has a pulse? Of course they do. The reality is, people call us because simple solutions aren't enough. You pour out the whole bottle and wait... a few bubbles... then nothing. It's very frustrating. Believe me, I know. And then there's Uncle Bob. He knows how to fix everything, or at least so he says. Three hours later, guests are starting to arrive in the living room, the sink is still clogged and Bob is beside himself, sitting on the soggy throw rug on the floor, watching YouTube videos of cats chasing dogs, or some other such thing, and that's when you go look for our magnet on your refrigerator so you can call us and get things back to normal. Maybe you'll need hydro jetting. Maybe a snake. Whatever the problem, we are experts at finding it quickly and giving you the best rates for repair. Many of our repeat clients have learned it's better to call us sooner than later. Especially when flooding is involved. Pipes burst and water starts to fill the floor and that's when things get very real. Of course the hot water heater going out when you're trying to take a shower so you can go to work is very real, as well. Those people in Alaska who cut holes in the ice and jump in, well, they are a bit different. Everyone I know likes a little hot water when they shower or bathe. And that noise hot water heaters make when they are going out, the clanking, that can be rather scary. The good news is that we don't scare easily. When it comes to plumbing, we've got your covered. Whether you need drain cleaning, toilet repair or an  emergency plumber at 3;15 in the morning, we are here for you. No matter where you are in the area and you're searching for plumbers near me, consider us your local plumbers, ready to respond wherever and whenever. Of course we also provide services when it's not an emergency. Toilet installation, shower installation, repiping, garbage disposal installation, of course water heater installation, sink or faucet installation, we do all of that and more. We offer free quotes and phone consultations, but of course for some jobs we'll need to come to your home or business to give you a more realistic quote. Any questions? Just give us a call at 909-823-3807 and let us win your trust.

Garbage Disposal

Anthony's Plumbing

July 15, 2019 - Monday

Garbage Disposal

Ever notice the bad smells coming from your Garbage Disposal? Many times, the reason is because of the food particles that get stuck in the nicks and crannies along the way. Disposals are known to crack and leak because we accidentally drop utensils or other hardened objects and grind them without knowing [like forks, spoons and knives] so check first before grinding and having the outer plastic housing crack. If you are Superman or Wonder Woman, common utensils would pose no threat, but to the average kitchen sink garbage disposal, we rely on the operator to exercise a certain level of caution. 

Bottom line: It's good to always check your disposal before you turn it on. Also, cut up larger food particles, and run a lot of cold water just before you turn it on. Rather than spend a lot of money on garbage disposal cleaner, we recommend that you use Dawn Ultra Dishwashing Liquid Dish Soap, whenever possible. We do not own stock in Dawn or P&G, but we find it to be a very high-quality product. They do sell it at Walmart, as well as most other quality home product retailers. To get rid of food particles hidden in your disposal, you can also throw ice inside the disposal. Maybe a few lemon peels from time to time. Also, for the smell, clean out the hose that goes from the air gap that drains into the disposal. It is better to run your disposal regularly. If you ever need help with your disposal, or want to upgrade to a newer, better model, just give us a call. For plumbing emergencies, Anthony’s Plumbing is here 24/7 for all your plumbing needs. If you want to do it yourself, we recommend the badger garbage disposal. So, what is the best garbage disposal? Of course, the answer will vary depending on who you ask. 

The InSinkErator Badger 5 is what we usually install. You can find it at Home Depot [Click Here], or on Amazon [Click Here] or if you prefer Lowes [Click Here]. Want something a little quieter? Then we recommend the Evolution Excel Garbage Disposal [Click Here]. Nothing grinds more with less noise. InSinkErator Evolution Series disposals represent the highest standard in performance. 

Simply put, they are the best grinding, quietest line of disposals Emerson has ever made. We install and repair all makes and models of garbage disposals, so if you need help, just give us a call at 909-823-3807 or visit us online at Anthony's Plumbing.
