Garbage Disposal Leak
What is a garbage disposal?
A garbage disposal is an appliance connected to a kitchen sink that grinds food waste into small particles, usually using water and electricity.
It is designed to then flush these particles down the sink drains to pipes underneath the house.
What is garbage disposal made of?
The garbage disposal has three parts:
When you turn on the garbage disposal, it will use electrical energy to spin the blades at a high enough speed to process food waste — fruits, vegetables, scraps, leftovers, etc.
What are the Most Common Problems that Cause a Garbage Disposal to Leak?
A leaking garbage disposal is one of the more common calls we handle at Rescue Plumbing.
Garbage disposal leaking from bottom
If the garbage disposal is leaking from the attached drainage piping, often the most practical solution is to replace drainage piping.
When your garbage disposal needs to be replaced
Sometimes, when the actual garbage disposal leaks, this means the garbage disposal needs to be replaced.
If the actual garbage disposal is leaking, that usually indicates that the garbage disposal grinding chamber lining has been breached. The grinding chamber lining is plastic and cant be repaired.
