Veggies Can Harm Your Garbage Disposal | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Some vegetables can hurt your garbage disposal and cause clogs in your plumbing. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you get rid of those clogs.

You went  bike riding this morning in Starkey Preserve but your mind wasn’t on the scenery. You were thinking about having to clear a clog in your kitchen sink when you got home. It’s not the first time recently that’s happened. For some reason, the sink seems to clog, then you clear it, things work for awhile and then the clog comes back. It’s frustrating to say the least.

Sounds as if you might have a partial clog that reduces the size of the pipe and catches debris, causing frequent clogs. That can happen when you try to put the wrong things down the drain.

You don’t do that, you say? You say you put food debris in the garbage disposal to grind it before rinsing it away.

That’s the problem – garbage disposals are made to dispose of food debris, but not all food debris. As says, “Garbage disposals are for getting rid of, well, garbage, right? Yes, but not all of it. Some things are better off composted or thrown away.”

Among the items you should not grind – potatoes, stems, corn husks and rinds. says, “Many vegetables can wreak havoc on your garbage disposal. You shouldn’t put fibrous vegetables in the disposal as they’ll bind up around the blade. Watch out for rhubarb, asparagus, celery, chard, artichokes, kale and lettuce.”

But let’s face it, life is not perfect and neither are we. Sometimes things get put into a garbage disposal that has no business being there. If that happens and you get a clog you can’t handle, it’s time to call for help from the trusted 24-hour plumbers at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
