You’ve got a garbage disposal in your kitchen, but is it really working?

Garbage disposals are great for getting rid of food scraps that would otherwise go to the landfill, but they can also be bad news if you don’t take care of them properly. That’s why we created this guide to help you keep your disposal running smoothly and avoid any problems with septic systems or plumbing lines.

Here are some tips for using your garbage disposal without causing any damage to the pipes or septic system:

Don’t put anything other than water and food scraps down the drain, including coffee grounds, eggshells, bones, grease (including bacon), oils and fats (including cooking oil).

Avoid putting fibrous foods like celery into the sink at all costs; these will clog up your pipes quickly because they’re not easily broken down by water alone.

Only use cold water when running a garbage disposal; hot water can cause grease buildup on blades and lead to corrosion over time.

Keep an eye out for leaks from under sinks or dishwashers as well as strange smells coming from drains.  These could indicate a problem with either the pipe leading away from the house or even something more serious like sewage backing up into your home!
