Tips for Using Your Garbage Disposal

Many people think disposals are hardier than they really are. The real purpose of this appliance is to dispose of small bits of food remnants down the sink. They are not made to dispose of large amounts of food items when you’re cleaning out your refrigerator.

Here are some ways to avoid needing garbage disposal repair:

  • Do not put fibrous foods down the drain, such as broccoli, melon rinds, onions, and the like.
  • Do not put more than a few tablespoons of soft food down the drain at one time.
  • Do not pour grease or fat down the disposal.
  • Do not turn the disposal off before the grinding is complete.
  • Avoid putting starchy foods like potato peels, a lot of rice, or pasta down the disposal. (They turn into a paste.)
  • Never grind non-food items such as bones, glass, or plastic.

I have used this company for my plumbing needs for years and I am always a satisfied customer. Dakota, my plumber, came to my house prepared, knowledgeable, professional and personable. He quickly went to work and fixed the water draining problem I had. The price is always reasonable and I never had a bad experience from this company. I will continue to use, them for all my plumbing needs.

The Plumbing Joint was responsive and communicated well. The technician they sent out, Aaron, did a fantastic job. When the Utility was unable to take care of their part during the line replacement from the meter to my house, Aaron went the extra mile to make sure my family had water service while we waited (6 days as it turned out) for the Utility. I highly recommend The Plumbing Joint!

This is the second time I've called The Plumbing Joint and they once again provided great customer service. Today, we were getting an estimate on a new bathroom and updating some existing plumbing. Buddy, our technician, was on time, professional, and offered sage advice as we talked through our project. He said he would have our bid written up in the next couple of days. Regardless of who've I've spoken to at The Plumbing Joint, I have always experienced kind, real people who are looking to do their best for you.
