In the Market for a New Garbage Disposal?

Before you go out and buy a new garbage disposal you should talk to a licensed plumber. There are several things to consider when purchasing a new disposal unit including the horsepower, special features and if you are using it with a septic system. You can also save by having your garbage disposal installation done at the same time as replacing your kitchen faucet, sink, fixture, or during other routine plumbing repairs.

Garbage Disposal Maintenance Tips

  • Always flush the system for at least 15 seconds after using the garbage disposal. This will clear out debris that can sit in the drain line and ferment and smell.
  • Never put metal, plastic, or glass down your disposal. These items can damage the cutting blades and reduce the efficiency of your system. The garbage disposal is for food items only.
  • Limit the amount of fats, oil, and grease that you put down the drain. If deep frying or disposing of more than roughly 1/2 cup, it’s strongly recommended that you fill an empty container and throw it away instead. Any more than that and you can clog your drain pipe or sewer line, which usually means you’ll need plumbing service to unclog the line.
  • If you are trying to retrieve a jammed item from the interior of your disposal, use pliers or tong to grab it. Don’t put your fingers in the disposal for any reason unless you have protective gloves. Also, make sure the power is off so the disposal doesn’t get turned on while you are working on it.
