Ever notice the bad smells coming from your Garbage Disposal? Many times, the reason is because of the food particles that get stuck in the nicks and crannies along the way. Disposals are known to crack and leak because we accidentally drop utensils or other hardened objects and grind them without knowing [like forks, spoons and knives] so check first before grinding and having the outer plastic housing crack. If you are Superman or Wonder Woman, common utensils would pose no threat, but to the average kitchen sink garbage disposal, we rely on the operator to exercise a certain level of caution.
Bottom line: It's good to always check your disposal before you turn it on. Also, cut up larger food particles, and run a lot of cold water just before you turn it on. Rather than spend a lot of money on garbage disposal cleaner, we recommend that you use Dawn Ultra Dishwashing Liquid Dish Soap, whenever possible. We do not own stock in Dawn or P&G, but we find it to be a very high-quality product. They do sell it at Walmart, as well as most other quality home product retailers. To get rid of food particles hidden in your disposal, you can also throw ice inside the disposal. Maybe a few lemon peels from time to time. Also, for the smell, clean out the hose that goes from the air gap that drains into the disposal. It is better to run your disposal regularly. If you ever need help with your disposal, or want to upgrade to a newer, better model, just give us a call. For plumbing emergencies, Anthony’s Plumbing is here 24/7 for all your plumbing needs. If you want to do it yourself, we recommend the badger garbage disposal. So, what is the best garbage disposal? Of course, the answer will vary depending on who you ask.
The InSinkErator Badger 5 is what we usually install. You can find it at Home Depot [Click Here], or on Amazon [Click Here] or if you prefer Lowes [Click Here]. Want something a little quieter? Then we recommend the Evolution Excel Garbage Disposal [Click Here]. Nothing grinds more with less noise. InSinkErator Evolution Series disposals represent the highest standard in performance.
Simply put, they are the best grinding, quietest line of disposals Emerson has ever made. We install and repair all makes and models of garbage disposals, so if you need help, just give us a call at 909-823-3807 or visit us online at Anthony's Plumbing.
