Frequently Asked Questions
HOW CAN I KEEP MY GARBAGE DISPOSAL WORKING?
There is one major rule to keep in mind for your garbage disposal: no grease, oil, fats, or similarly gooey substances. These things can often pass easily into your garbage disposal and then harden rapidly into a mess you will never quite clear out. Even if these substances do make it through your disposal, in the colder months of Greer, there’s a good chance these substances hit cold pipes further in and harden into clogged drains, affecting more than just your disposal. For similar reasons, avoid using your garbage disposal on food items that expand, like rice.
WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX MY GARBAGE DISPOSAL?
While we recommend against most garbage disposal DIY repairs, you can try running hot water, enzymatic cleaners, or vinegar and baking soda through your garbage disposal to get the gunk out. Make sure you reset it if you tripped the internal breaker by pushing the small button on the underside of your garbage disposal. If this isn’t enough, it’s time to call in the pros for proper garbage disposal repair.
WHY IS WATER LEAKING FROM MY DISHWASHER?
Many dishwashers drain through the disposal of the adjacent sink, meaning that a blockage in your disposal will be a blockage for your dishwasher. For similar reasons, if you have a blockage past your sink and continue to run the sink, water can end up in your dishwasher—especially if you try to plunge it or otherwise add pressure.
HOW CAN I KEEP MY DISPOSAL CLEAN AND FRESH?
Make sure you always run your disposal with cold water during the grinding process. Hot water can have negative effects if you use it at this point, and if you need it to melt grease, you’re already doing something wrong. For cleaning, on the other hand, use vinegar and baking soda and flush with hot or even boiling water.
CAN I PUT A LIQUID PLUMBER DOWN MY DISPOSAL?
Any experienced plumber will almost always recommend against liquid plumbing products because the effects they can have on your plumbing will be unpredictable at best. Liquid plumbing also does nothing to resolve the root cause of your clog while potentially pushing you closer to needing a full replacement of drains, pipes, etc. If you’re going to use anything, stick to safer enzymatic products.
