Garbage Disposal Installation
A garbage disposal is one of those things you never realized you needed until you have to go without it. With a good garbage disposal, you’ll spend a lot less time scraping food into the garbage—or fishing your soggy dinner leftovers out of the drain. If you’re considering adding a garbage disposal to your kitchen, the plumbers at your local ARS/Rescue Rooter can help you not only choose the right model, but also make sure it is installed correctly.
Your go-to garbage disposal installation professionals
If you’re on the fence about whether to add a garbage disposal to your kitchen or you want to upgrade the one you have, think about all the ways it can save you time. Just remember, like any other appliance, you have to treat your unit with respect if you want to avoid frequent garbage disposal repairs.
Avoid putting certain things down the garbage disposal, such as:
- Stringy vegetables (asparagus, celery, corn husks): The fibrous strings get tangled up in the disposal blades.
- Starchy vegetables (potato peels, beans): They expand and cause water to thicken, leaving a soupy mess that will clog up pipes.
- Grease and oil: When it cools down, grease and oil will clog up your pipes and become difficult to clean.
- Bones: They’ll just keep spinning around and around the blades, and if they make it down the drain, they’ll clog up the pipes.
- Egg shells: The shell’s membrane lining can stick to the sides of the disposal and wrap around the shredder.
- Fruit pits (peach, avocado): They are too hard to be ground up easily and could damage the disposal blades.
- Coffee grounds: They’ll pile up in your drain and cause a sludge-like mess that’s hard to clean up.
