You’ve gone this long without a garbage disposal, and so far, you haven’t run into too many major problems. Sure, there’s the occasional drain clog. Sometimes, chunks of food travel down the drain as you empty out the drain cover to dump food scraps in the trash. And drain covers certainly are not the most convenient methods of throwing out food waste.
All of these inconveniences, along with the potential for a drain clog, are not worth going without a disposal unit for any longer. A technician can install a new garbage disposal for your home in a matter of hours. So what are you waiting for?
So Why Haven’t You Upgraded Your Kitchen Sink?
A garbage disposal is a viable option in most households. We’ve heard of a few reasons homeowners with older plumbing systems decide to forgo installing a garbage disposal, and we’ll discuss some of these in the list below.
I haven’t gotten any major clogs so far. Some food is bound to slip down the drain as you work in the kitchen, and with no system in place to break it down, it moves into the drainage system whole. A major clog is bound to happen sometime or another. But with proper usage, a garbage disposal helps to prevent this from happening, breaking down food into tiny pieces that won’t trouble your drains.
I have a septic tank. Some people have heard that a septic tank was not designed to take on waste from your garbage disposal. But that’s simply untrue with modern garbage disposals and sewage pumps. Buy a new high-speed garbage disposal, and food waste is no more of a bother to your plumbing system than any other type of waste.
I’m not sure if I can afford it. As far as plumbing installation costs go, garbage disposals are nowhere near the top of the list. At the very least, it’s worth it to call your plumber and find out what it will take to get a garbage disposal in your kitchen.
