Garbage Disposal

Did you know that the quickest way to send your garbage disposal to heaven is to lose a spoon down the drain? While most people realize that their disposals are in fact not wood chippers or diamond cutters, it doesn’t stop us from pushing them to the extreme. Here is a list of things that you should never throw down the disposal:

  • Bones—no matter how small the bones are, beef, chicken, pork, and even fish bones should be thrown into the trash. Grinding these scraps puts a lot of strain on the garbage disposal and can leave it beyond repair after too many attempts.
  • Pits—avocado, peach, and apricot pits are very similar to bones in that they are tough enough to wear out a disposal very quickly. Throw these out the old fashioned way or plant them in your garden.
  • Paper, cardboard, or other manufactured materials—plastics and papers are not designed to go through sewage systems and will end up causing serious blockages and other problems.

Follow these tips for better disposal care:

  • Use enzymes. Roto-Rooter drain products include several enzymes that are crucial for the long-term health of a garbage disposal. These enzymes help break down gunk and grime that gets caught in the cracks and crevices, preventing clogs from forming.
  • Pour boiling water down the drain once a week. If you add a little bit of vinegar and baking soda, the garbage disposal will be free of problems.
