My water heater is leaking. What do I do?
Is it much of a deal if my toilet is running?
What's safe to place in my garbage disposal?
When grinding to move waste down the drain lines, it is important that you always run cold water. Grease and fats thicken and harden in cold water, making it easier for them to be flushed down the system. Never use hot water as it dissolves grease and fats and they may then end up accumulating further down the drain line – worsening the situation.
Almost all sort of biodegradable food wastes can be disposed of in a disposer. However, never use your disposal system to grind oyster shells, cornhusks or food stuffs that are high in fiber content. But most of all, never, under any circumstances, put plastic, metal, glass or non-food materials in a disposer. This includes aluminum foils, tin covers and bottle caps – some of the most common items found in broken or clogged disposers.
The great thing about garbage disposal maintenance is that it is easy. Grinding eggshells and small bones could actually help clean the system as they scrap away pulp, stubborn deposits or citric acid. Grinding some ice through the system is another great way to clean of deposits and to get rid of odors. However, the good thing is that most disposers are self-cleaning.
