As an essential service, Billy the Sunshine Plumber is open and here to help you with your plumbing emergencies, maintenance and upgrades 24/7/365.

Like many people, you’ve been spending part of the COVID-19 coronavirus “safer-at-home” time practicing new or little used skills. One of those is cooking. When you were going out to work every day, you spent a lot of time eating restaurant or takeout meals for lunch and bringing them home for dinner. But now that you’re home all the time (or almost all the time), you’ve got time to cook. So you’ve been trying lots of new recipes and techniques.

Now, your sink is clogged and your garbage disposal won’t run. 

Sounds as if you’ve been putting stuff down the garbage disposal that shouldn’t go down the garbage disposal. It’s a bit counter-intuitive that a machine made for grinding stuff up isn’t really that tough. It’s actually a bit finicky.

Some things should never be put down a garbage disposal. Among them, according to homehacks.co: potato peels, bones, pasta, celery, grease, beans, coffee grounds, fruit pits (seeds), asparagus, egg shells, corn husks, rice, and shells from things like crabs and shrimp.

Each of these things can, in its own way, gum up your garbage disposal’s works and/or damage the blades. They can also end up causing clogs that can block your drain and pipes. The proper place for them is in the garbage.

If your garbage disposal is suffering from the effects of such things, it’s time to call a reliable plumber like the plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
