Frequently Asked Questions

What are the common signs that your garbage disposal isn't performing properly?

If your kitchen sink drain runs slow or continuously gets clogged, the most common cause is food particles not being ground up small enough to wash out of your pipes. This can happen if your garbage disposal blades have corroded over time and are no longer close enough to grind everything small enough.

Do you have a foul odor that lingers from your kitchen sink area? Try grinding ice cubes down your disposal to clean away the particles sticking to your blades.

If your garbage disposal hums when you turn it on or doesn’t turn on at all, it could be jamming due to something stuck in the disposal that can’t be ground or the blades not grinding the particles small enough to pass through the strainer and wash out of the pipes.

Not all garbage disposals are created equal.

The best garbage disposals have stainless steel, NOT galvanized, grind components so the garbage disposal doesn’t rot out and the teeth don’t get ground down, rendering them ineffective. Look for cutting teeth that are closer together so everything gets ground up small and can wash through your pipes freely.

High-RPM motors and longer warranties are also features of premium, high-performance models. Although premium garbage disposals cost more initially, they provide a better long-term value along with high performance and fewer drain backups.

What can and can't go down a garbage disposal?

  • A good rule of thumb is if you don’t eat it, you shouldn’t put it down the garbage disposal. That covers things such as bones, eggshells, thick rinds, and fish tank gravel.
  • It’s not a good idea to put pasta or rice down a garbage disposal, as it continues to expand when it absorbs more water. Stringy vegetables like celery or hard ones like carrots are also not garbage disposal friendly.
  • When pouring grease or melted butter into the disposal or drain, run cold water, not hot water.
  • Grind ice cubes to sharpen blades and run a baking soda and vinegar mixture through to clear up smelly food bits.
  • Adding 2 ounces of BioOne once a month is ideal for keeping your garbage disposal and drains clear and fresh smelling.
