Maintaining Your Garbage Disposal
This is extremely important because it helps to keep your drain and sewer system free of clogs caused by grease or food waste from faulty garbage disposals. Avoid pouring grease, cooking oil, coffee grounds, or other oily substances that can build up in your drain lines and cause clogs. Avoid putting large chunks of any food, starchy foods such as potatoes or pasta that build up a sticky paste and clog up your drain and tough meat scraps into your disposal because these can cause jams and/or cause major damage to the blades. For disposal jams, use the wrench that is designed for the slot under your disposal to release most jams.
