We have a rental unit in Dana Point and our tenant called, saying no heat. I called Kalka Heating and Air and Jarrad took my call, and scheduled Ryan to service the unit. Replacing the Furnace Filter was all it needed. We have perfect heat again! I received a call from Vanessa to say there was no charge for the service call. I was so happy to hear this! Thank you's to everyone at Kalka Plumbing and Heating for making my day! And thank you Kevin for running such a straightforward company. This is so much appreciated!

I have had two plumbing emergencies that they have responded to and repaired right away. They also did a great job replacing my air conditioner and water heater. They are kind and professional, and their work quality is excellent.

Ryan and his co worker (I forgot his name, sorry!) were a pleasure! They were very careful about putting on shoe coverings and wore masks the entire time. They spent a good amount of time tuning up our AC and furnace. Ryan was very detailed about how everything was running and had a couple of suggestions that would make our system better. We appreciated their professionalism and friendliness. We will take them up on their suggestions. We will definitely use Kalka again!

Ryan and his trainee were not just on time for the appt, they were actually a little early! I was so impressed with that! They both were wearing masks and those booties to cover their shoes. They were professional and very friendly. It is always a pleasure doing business with Kalka.

Fixing A Garbage Disposal

What is Garbage Disposal? Garbage disposal units are a great invention for people who do not want to be bothered with the task of taking out their kitchen garbage. Garbage disposals can be used in kitchens, laundry rooms, and other areas that have a water supply. A common problem with these units is clogs which cause the waste material to back up into your sink or bathtub. Garbage disposals can also leak from time to time due to a cracked seal in the unit itself.

Garbage disposals are appliances that are built to grind up food waste so it can be washed down the drain. This is done by using a spinning blade that chops up the food into tiny bits, then flushes them away with water. It's an essential part of every home because you don't want rotting garbage in your trashcan for days on end while flies begin to breed and contaminate everything else in there too.

A bad garbage disposal installation or sudden malfunctioning unit could make any homeowner tense - but fortunately, these issues are usually pretty simple to fix if you know what you're doing.

The most common problems with Garbage Disposal are noise, leaks, and blockages. The easiest way to troubleshoot these issues is by starting at the sink drain where water flows down into it from your fixtures above (such as faucet or tap). 

First, check for any loose hoses that might be allowing water to leak out of them under pressure - this typically causes a loud banging sound when running the garbage disposal if you have leaking hoses in place! 

Secondly, remove any debris caught around the edges of the Garbage Disposal chute using either hand or power tools such as an auger bit attached to the drill. 

Lastly, try turning on both hot and cold water handles simultaneously so there is equal pressure on the Garbage Disposal blades. Garbage disposal should be able to grind up most food scraps by this point!

If these steps don't work, Garbage Disposal may have a physical problem that requires replacement or repair. If you are buying new Garbage Disposals for your house renovation project either install the same model of Garbage Disposal as was in place before (if possible) or find one with a similar size and power capacity so it fits into existing space easily without compromising water flow further down drain pipes.

If you want to ensure that the job gets done right. These professionals have experience with fixing Garbage Disposals and know how to do it quickly, efficiently, and without creating a bigger problem for you down the road.
