Frequently Asked Questions

Plumbers generally view garbage disposals as convenient kitchen appliances but caution against their misuse. While they acknowledge the convenience they offer in reducing food waste, they often encounter issues stemming from improper usage, such as clogs and damage to plumbing systems. Some plumbers advocate for proper maintenance and cautious operation to prolong the lifespan of both the disposal unit and the plumbing infrastructure, emphasizing the importance of responsible disposal practices to avoid unnecessary repairs and inconvenience for homeowners.

To connect a drain pipe to a garbage disposal, begin by ensuring the disposal is turned off and disconnected from power. Then, remove the drain plug and connect the disposal’s drain flange to the drain pipe using a suitable connector, ensuring a secure fit with plumber’s putty or a rubber gasket. Next, tighten the mounting assembly to secure the disposal in place. Finally, reconnect the power and test the disposal to ensure proper functionality and leak-free operation.

Putting liquid plumber down a garbage disposal is generally not recommended as it can cause damage to the disposal unit. The chemicals in liquid plumber are designed to dissolve clogs in pipes, but they can also corrode the metal components of the disposal, leading to leaks or even complete malfunction. Additionally, the residue from the liquid plumber can linger in the disposal and contaminate food scraps. Instead, it’s advisable to use safer methods such as plunging, vinegar and baking soda, or a mechanical snake to clear any clogs in the garbage disposal.

Garbage disposals can potentially contribute to sewer problems if not used properly or if the sewer system is already compromised. While they efficiently grind food waste, solid particles can accumulate in sewer lines, leading to blockages over time. Additionally, oils and fats from food waste can congeal and adhere to pipes, exacerbating clogs. Regular maintenance and avoiding disposing of certain items like grease or fibrous materials can mitigate these issues, but improper usage can indeed lead to sewer backups and costly repairs.

Garbage disposals should not be used for disposing of certain items such as grease, oils, fats, stringy or fibrous materials like corn husks or celery, bones, eggshells, coffee grounds, and non-food items like paper or plastic. These substances can clog the disposal, damage its blades, or cause plumbing issues. Additionally, it’s important to avoid overloading the disposal with large amounts of food at once, as this can also lead to inefficiency or blockages. Regular maintenance and proper use can extend the lifespan of a garbage disposal and prevent costly repairs.

What Can You Put in Your Garbage Disposal?

Knowing what you can and cannot put in your garbage disposal is essential for preventing clogs and maintaining its functionality. Here’s a guide from Mister Quik Home Services on what you can safely dispose of:

Food Scraps

Insulation helps to keep heat in your home during the winter and cool air in your home during the summer.

Soft Foods

Soft foods that can easily break down in water are safe to put in the disposal. Examples include cooked pasta, rice, and oatmeal.

Ice Cubes

Running ice cubes through your garbage disposal helps keep the blades clean and sharp. It also helps dislodge any small food particles that may be stuck inside.

Citrus Peels

Citrus peels not only freshen up the disposal with a pleasant scent but also help clean and deodorize the unit.


While controversial, many people safely dispose of eggshells in their garbage disposal. They can help clean the blades and break up other food particles.
