- Water is draining slowly through your garbage disposal or clogged.
Tips to Keep Your Garbage Disposal Operating
- Garbage disposals require frequent use to keep away rust and corrosion.
- Using your garbage disposal to crush food should be accomplished by using cold water only. Cold water solidifies any greases or oils that might have been poured into the system, making it effortless for the system to break them up and eliminate them.
Leaking Garbage Disposals
A leaking garbage disposal can be fixed if you can identify the part that's causing the problem. It's important that worn out parts are replaced rather than placing a band aid over them, such as trying to stop a leak from a cracked seal by smearing it with plumber's putty. Even quality disposals may leak over time due to wear and tear on the seals, loose pipes, flanges, or gaskets that have dried out and cracked as they aged, and even fissures in the body of the garbage disposal. Some disposals in modern homes are connected to the dishwasher, which allows the dishwasher to "self clean" so you're not rinsing out a filter after every wash or two. This area commonly has leaks as well. Any of these issues are repairable, except for cracks occuring in the disposal's body or the interior lining of the disposal. If this is your problem, you will need to replace it and install a new one. The difference in price can be significant, as a new disposal costs roughly $100, while gaskets for example are commonly found for less than $5. It can take an amateur an entire afternoon of grunting, torn skin, and multiple trips to the hardware store to diagnose and make some of the simple repairs, so make sure to factor that into the cost before you decide to tackle the problem yourself. Having a skilled technician out to diagnose and repair the problem can also help catch any other parts that may be about to go as well, so you don't find yourself repairing the same disposal two weeks later.
