Garbage Disposal Tips
To help minimize the need for garbage disposal repair, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Cold water – Use only cold water when grinding food as hot water can melt fat which clogs in other areas of your drain when it cools.
- Overfilling – Garbage disposals are the unsung heroes of kitchens, yet they are often overloaded which can lead to clogging and burned out motors.
- Running water – Always run water before and after using your garbage disposal. As with any sort of pump designed for use with water, they wear when running dry.
- Drain cleaners – Never use bleach or drain cleaners in your unit.
- Hard items – Any hard food scraps or waste should be avoided such as bones, pits, and coffee grounds as well as any items made of rubber, metal, or glass.
While we do have a DIY guide to changing your disposal on our blog; it is highly recommended to seek the assistance from professionals like Jerm’s Plumbing & Heating due to the risks from handling sharp blades and also working with electricity in an environment that includes water.

James - Hartland, VT
After being told by multiple companies that there was about a 5 week waiting list, Jerm’s plumbing came within 24 hours to help replace faulty valves. They surveyed the situation, made suggestions, wrote up a couple quotes, and when we decided which route to go, they had the repair done in about an hour. Quick, clean, and priced at the quote we discussed. Will definitely recommend them.
