Potato Peels in the Garbage Disposal | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber is ready to help if potato peels gun up your plumbing or garbage disposal.

You’re headed to the farmer’s market this morning hoping to find some good, local produce. Among the things you’re searching for are potatoes. After this week, you really want some comfort food.

Be careful your comfort food doesn’t turn into a stressful plumbing problem that ends with your calling a plumber to clear out a gummy mess from your garbage disposal or drains.

“Today’s garbage disposals can handle a wider variety of challenges than the earliest models, but putting potato peels in garbage disposals presents an ongoing challenge. While not overly tough or fibrous, potato peels contain a high amount of starch that can clump up and form a thick paste that clogs your disposal. Intact peels can also pass through the disposal and collect in the drain trap or other piping, creating a tough clog,” hunker.com explains.”Instead of using the disposal, peel potatoes directly into a plastic grocery bag or onto newspapers or paper towels before discarding into a trash receptacle or relocating to your compost bin.”

It’s a shame because it seems so easy to simply grind up the peels, then rinse them away. That may be why people don’t resist the temptation to dump the potato peels in the disposal and end up with a mess they can’t handle.

If that happens to you, it’s time to call the local, 24-hour  plumbing pros at  Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
