Tips & Hints

  • White spots around the outer band of the garbage disposal are a sign of deterioration and replacement of the unit is advisable in the near future. If you are not yet prepared to replace the disposal, placing a water alarm below it might be a useful alert measure.
  • Please don’t use a liquid sanitizer in your toilet tank. The chemicals are very strong and they can cause the rubber gaskets and fittings in the tank to break down prematurely. They also leave a sticky buildup in the tank and the tank must be removed and cleaned before new parts can be fitted.
  • If you have a faucet with low water pressure , try this trick before you call me. Remove the aerator from the end of the faucet spout, clean it and replace it with the washer intact. Sometimes a little debris trapped in the aerator can really reduce the water flow from a faucet.
  • You can keep the housing on your garbage disposal clean and the blades sharp if you run a cup of ice through the unit once a month with plenty of cold water. If you follow that with a few slices of lemon you will sanitize the unit and make your whole kitchen smell lemon fresh.
