A garbage disposal is one of the unsung heroes of a kitchens drain system. With a working disposal, wastes flow through the wastewater pipe and your kitchen smell nice. Otherwise, theres clogs, bacterial buildup, odors, and eventually, more nuisance surfaces.
Let's take a look at the working of a disposal, why its essential as well as some maintenance tips.
How Garbage Disposal Works
An electric motor drives the disposal. Unlike a blender, which uses blades to chop down food into particles, a disposal features a spinning plate with impellers on it. After chunking down garbage and food debris into particles, the wastewater, running down the sink, flushes the particles through the grind ring to the disposer and wastewater pipe.
Importance of a Disposal
Without a garbage disposal, you wouldn't find your kitchen an exciting place to stay while the rate of fixing or replacing components will be also high. Besides, the overall efficiency of your drain will surfer.
Garbage disposal, mounted underside your sink drain, reduces debris and bacteria build-up, prevent odors and overall, ensure your drains drain better. Because the garbage disposal isn't foolproof to defect and possible clogs, you need regular maintenance as well as occasional repairs. In case of repairs, you may have to consult the service of a plumber.

How you maintain or handle your disposal predetermines its lifespan. Some maintenances do not require special knowledge or technical skills. In some instances, you may only have to remove the P trap, using a pipe wrench in case there is food clogs.
Besides, to avoid jam and clogs, we recommend you dont feed food materials with husk (as in corn) or pouring grease down the drain. If you noticed unusual clogs as a result of grease, run a hot water through for some minutes and hopefully, your system should be back up and running.
When you cant seem to figure out the source of the nuisance, you should seek the help of an experienced plumber. And this is critical because major repairs require high safety precautions. Some replacements or repairs may require the electricity mains turned off. However, with proper care, regular maintenance and quick fixes, your system will last years.
