Kitchen Sink with Garbage Disposal
A garbage disposal is a motorized device that is attached under the kitchen sink that grinds different foodstuffs into pieces small enough to send down the drain. There are many advantages and disadvantages to garbage disposals. It is important for homeowners to understand both the pros and cons to make a more educated decision on whether or not to buy a sink garbage disposal.
Many homeowners in Baton Rouge like the convenient way of disposing food scraps through sink garbage disposal. It saves a lot of time and trouble in doing dishes or cleaning the kitchen. Also, reducing the amount of trash at home means less waste for the garbage collector to send on your town’s landfill.
Lastly, many garbage disposals come with quiet operation options. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a sink garbage disposal includes the costs, the maintenance required for the unit, higher electricity bills depending on how often the unit is used and clog pipes down the line.
Although clogs may happen infrequently, it can be difficult to diagnose and fix requiring partial disassembly of the unit to remove old food and other solid objects that could not be disposed of by the unit. For a stress-free sink garbage disposal installation, call Mock Plumbing.
