Do I need a plumber and electrician to install my dishwasher and garbage disposal?

I am putting a dishwasher in a kitchen that never had one and there is a plug in a "wall" between the under-the-sink area and where the dishwasher will go. I've heard several different opinions on whether I'll need a plumber AND an electrician or just a plumber.

We also want to get a garbage disposal, will that need an electric source as well?

Any ideas/suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    unless you are a licenced plumber or electrician yes you should call them in to do the work. sometimes you can hire someone that does both if you can this can be a big savings of not only money but also time. if you get one of them in you might not get the other for a few days.

    you will require the thoughts of the two a plumber and an electrician. A plumber shouldn't do any wiring for you except the twine is right there. A electrician shouldn't do your plumbing hookup. A electrician won't splice into your gentle swap to furnish you power to a rubbish disposal unit. A rubbish disposal could require a sparkling twine out of your provider panel or a branch circuit. Do it superb and do it sturdy. magnificent sturdy fortune Richard
