Garbage Disposal System Unplugged

By Harry Corley Subscribe to RSS | February 16th 2012 | Views:

Garbage disposal is the best friend of the homeowners. People observe it as the most suitable accessory for their kitchens. It helps to keep the kitchen clean and clear without any garbage. It helps to get rid of food scraps and table scraps. In fact, it can handle most things in very compact portions, however, there are few things you should never put in your disposal system. Any kind of hard or tough-peeled vegetable should not be put in the garbage disposal system. It prevents the blades from turning and dramatically makes the system less efficient.

People should never put oil, grease or any sticky substance in the system, as it will ultimately solidify and block some or all of the drain. One should understand that a disposal system is not as strong as stone crusher and cannot handle pulverizing animal bones. It may affect the blades that might break down, and can affect the crushing process.

Rice and other such items have the same problem and can never be broken down small elements. They also gain size when contacted with moisture and water. They clog the system eventually and make it less efficient. Seeds from fruits and puffy vegetables should not be put down the system, as they can’t be broken down further and can clog the line. They can ruin your disposal and therefore should be dumped away.

Other items to trash instead of tossing down the disposal system mainly include rubber bands, glass, screws paper, plastic, rags, flowers, children’s toys, or hair. All these items can damage the system and can challenge its limits. If you find any problem in your system then you must call your reliable plumber to solve the problem. Plumbers can understand the problem and diagnose the system for efficiency. They ensure your sink and dishwasher is properly working in order to handle the daily task of food scraps you run through the garbage disposal.

Plumbing companies also offer vital tips for the longevity of the system including:

• Putting a cup or two of ice is a good tool to assist in maintaining the sharpness of your blades.

• To address the occasional odor associated with usage, discard a lemon or orange in the unit for a fresh scent.

• Pour a mixture of ammonia and warm water in the drain and let it sit for 30 minutes, then run cold water with your disposal turned on.
