A question on having a disposal - or a stinky sink!
I've been smelling something bad in my kitchen. not much food prep goes on in there yet - zilch really. made some toast and that's it. but I think I tracked the smell down.
my sink w/a disposal. that does not work. it didn't work and the electrician just disconnected it. A thought just hit me that maybe he just unplugged it and I could plug it in (will one of you come plug it in for me? thx). I think it's scary under there.
The question is about having one there that doesn't work. Water started to not go down on that side of the sink. I had to get out the plunger - and it finally went down. I expect it'll happen again tho.
I'm on a septic and don't really want a disposal. Haven't had one in over 20 yrs and haven't missed it. But the water 'pipes' in here are a plastic tube. good grief. The piping under the sink in my old place looks like regular piping (but it leaks).
I mentioned this tube stuff to my BIL sometime back and I swear he told me that's what they are using now. That's what they have in their many 100's K $ home built a few yrs ago. This can't be true, can it? Tell me he lied to me - lol! or I misunderstood him. I'll ask him again...
anyway, I'm wondering if I shouldn't just get a cheap/small disposal to have put in so that I can just run it to clear stuff out now and again. I did buy a plastic flower looking thing w/tiny holes to put over that drain so things wouldn't fall into it.
words of wisdom from my wise friends here?
