How Garbage Disposals Work
Garbage disposals are pretty simple and they all work on a similar principle. They have a flat plate with small, rotating, steel mashers, and an inner disposal wall that has “teeth” to do the job of grinding your food waste. A motor inside the unit rotates the flat plate in the food-grinding area. When you switch the unit on, the mashers are forced to swing toward the outside of the spinning plate.
Disposals should be run just until the food has been ground up-which is usually less than 30 seconds. Also- make sure to run a full stream of cold water through the disposal while it grinds. Water will help dispose and flush materials properly.
Tips for Garbage Disposal Owners
- Never put bones or metal materials into unit
- Keep rubber materials out of device
- Use a strong flow of water when using device
- Never use drain cleaner in unit
Functioning Disposals Shifting from Landfill Waste
It’s true that putting the food waste in the trash will shift the burden to the local landfill instead of your sewage treatment system, but landfills are causing more problems today than sewage treatment systems. A functional disposal will dispose of food properly and eliminate the need for landfill waste build-up. Call Suzie B’s Plumbing to learn more about our professional garbage disposal installations in Minneapolis.
When you buy a new disposal, installation instructions are included. But before you scrap your old disposal, check the manufacturer’s warranty. Some warranties cover parts and labor for 5 years or more. This could end up saving you money in the long run.
Proper Use of a Garbage Disposal
When using a disposal, be sure to flush it with plenty of water-two gallons per minute. If something has been put in the disposal that shouldn’t have been, including metal, rubber, glass objects, or fibrous food waste such as artichokes and corn husks, shells, or large whole bones, use tongs or pliers to pull the material out; never use your hand.
