Garbage Disposers & Dishwashers
A garbage disposer or disposal unit is an electrically powered device that is set up under your kitchen sink. It minces food particles into tiny pieces small enough to pass through the plumbing system. A dishwasher washes dirty dishes and kitchen utensils. The washing and rinsing of the dishes is done by the machine. This includes the draining of the waste water right into the pipes under the sink or through the garbage disposer first then down the drain.
What Causes Garbage Disposer Clogs?
Even garbage disposers that are used properly can sometimes get clogged. If you try to dispose of grease, fat and hard objects such as meat and chicken bones or coffee grounds as well as fibrous materials such as artichoke stems, avocado peel and cornhusk silks, they are more likely to get clogged. These food residues are hard on the motor of the device and could cause jamming of the disposal unit. This could trigger a back up of the garbage disposer that can create a mess and stink in the kitchen sink. And since a dishwashing machine is piped down through a garbage disposer a jammed unit could also resort to a stinking and messy dishwasher, just when it is most needed.
