New Waste King disposal causing water to pool in sink

smbhOctober 22, 2010

We had a waste king disposal installed yesterday. The water is now VERY slow to drain (ie when clean water is just running from the faucet into a clean sink it pools). Could it be the rubber flange thing that covers the drain is too tight and not letting water down fast enough? when we push it around the water flows more freely - can we trim it or adjust if?) Or could a bad installation do this? Thanks.

They tend to become more floppy with age.
