Garbage Disposal FAQs

You should run cold water while using it, regularly run hot water down your disposal when it’s not running & use a garbage disposal cleaner regularly to help keep it clean & clog free.

Knowing what food shouldn’t go in the disposal is important. For example, never put grease, oil, or fat down the drain; avoid putting non-food items or hard materials like glass, metal, or plastic down the drain, don’t overload it with too much food waste; and don’t put fibrous or stringy materials like corn husks or celery down the drain.

The worst thing to put down is something that can damage the blades or motor, like bones, fruit pits, or non-food items like glass or metal. If any of these items fall in by accident, take caution and unplug your system before attempting to remove said items. Also, never insert your hand into the disposal.

Yes! Garbage disposals can be installed on any sink with a standard drain opening and sufficient space for the unit under the sink. Call us today if you have any questions.

Garbage disposals may not work if they are clogged, overloaded, or have a malfunctioning motor. Check to see if any food or debris is blocking the blades, reset the disposal using the reset button or circuit breaker, and give us a call if the issue persists.

The reset button is usually near the motor at the bottom of the unit. It may be red or black and require pushing in or turning to reset the disposal.

Yes! For safety reasons, a garbage disposal should be installed with a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). GFCI helps prevent electric shock during a short circuit or electrical malfunction.

The type of disposal you need depends on your household’s needs and the type of sink and plumbing you have. Our professional plumbers can recommend the best type and size of garbage disposal for your home.

No! The two appliances are connected, but in a way that allows your dishwasher to drain into your garbage disposal. Not the other way around.

Installing a garbage disposal can be a complex and potentially dangerous task, especially if you are not experienced with plumbing or electrical work. Therefore, it is recommended to have a professional plumber install your garbage disposal for safety and to ensure it is installed properly.

The time can vary depending on the unit type, the installation’s complexity, and any necessary repairs or modifications to the plumbing. Installing a disposal can take anywhere from 2-4 hours.

No, it is not better to throw food away! Using a garbage disposal can be a convenient and eco-friendly way to dispose of food waste. By reducing the amount of garbage, you also help the environment.

Nope, it’s beneficial to do both! What can’t go down your drain can also go into your compost. Combining the two reduces your carbon footprint.
