That’s the sound you want your garbage disposal to make. But plumbers say way too many people are going to have broken ones today. That’s because they try to stuff too much of the wrong things down their disposals.
"They’re going to try to put onions down, sweet potato peelings, egg shells, we’re going to see probably a lot of grease which is going to be your drain’s number one enemy."
Sharon Blomquist with Rapid Rooter in Sacramento says grease will just shut down your pipes. Some tips: don’t put the wrong stuff down your disposal also don’t put too much down there. And run your disposal several times to clear out smaller amounts of waste.
