Default 10 Reasons to Get a Garbage Disposal

About 20 percent of our waste comes from food scraps, and many people have a problem with the odor their trash can full of food emits. A garbage disposal can solve both of these problems, as well as provide you with many other benefits. If you are considering installing a garbage disposal in your home, here are 10 reasons you should.
Environmental Benefits

1. Effective food waste disposal:
Food that is disposed of using a garbage disposal is grinded up into tiny pieces. The waste from a garbage disposal can be turned into renewable energy and fertilizer.2. Less food waste:
Putting more food scraps down your garbage disposal means less waste ends up in landfills, which cause pollution.3. Recycling:
70 percent of the waste you put in your garbage disposal is water. The waste moves through the disposal to the sewer system and is then treated at the water plant.
Convenience and Cost Effectiveness

4. Easy clean up:
Cleaning up the dishes after a meal is much faster with a garbage disposal. You donít have to scrape all of your food scraps into the garbage. Simply leave your food scraps in the sink and flip the switch when you are ready.5. Empty the trash less:
Our kitchen trashcans are mostly filled with food scraps. If you are putting less food in your garbage can, you wonít have to empty it as frequently.6. Cheap to use:
Operating a garbage disposal does not require much water. On average a garbage disposal only costs about 50 cents to run each year.
7. Quiet options:
A lot of garbage disposals come with quiet grinding options, so even when you are using it, you wonít be bothered by the noise it emits.

8. No more picking food out of the sink:
When you are doing the dishes some food scraps inevitably end up in the sink. If you donít have a garbage disposal, you have to hand pick out all the food scraps that canít go down the drain, which is gross. With a garbage disposal, you donít have to touch the food scraps at all.

Plumbing Benefits

9. No more clogged sink drains:
Occasionally, food scraps will make their way down your drain. This causes the drain to become clogged. If a sink drain is clogged, a plumber has to resolve the issue, which costs money.
10. Easy to unclog and maintain:San Jose Garbage Disposal Services
If your garbage disposal becomes clogged, running water and then turning the unit on will usually unclog it.

Guess he's looking for some free advertising. Not real good marketing imo.

So wait, if my disposal is jammed and not draining or spinning, I just need add more water and turn it on again?....

I tried that, the sink has been over flowing for 25 minutes and there is a electrical burning smell... Is all that normal.
