Most are strong and rugged, but even so they aren’t able to grind up all wastes. If long, trouble free service is to be expected, care should be taken in the type of garbage stuffed into the hopper THE BIGGEST TROUBLE with garbage disposers is caused by those using the appliance. An operator should be thoroughly familiar with manufacturer instructions regarding what can and what can’t be placed in a disposer.
Any garbage disposer will grind and get rid of soft food wastes, such as meat particles, bread scraps and soft vegetable leftovers. However, only the more expensive models-specifically, those equipped with capacitor-start motors-also can handle bones, seafood shells, corncobs and other heavy food matter. No garbage disposer is designed to handle non-food wastes. They are not built to grind glass, pottery, broken dishes, bottle caps, rubber, plastic, silverware, string, cardboard, paper or rags. Placing this stuff into a food disposer will damage the unit and can clog the drain? A garbage disposer can be installed in homes served by septic systems as well as those served by municipal sewers. However, there could be a problem if the drain field is not adequate to accommodate the extra load placed on it by the unit. A garbage disposer uses about six gallons of water per day. To be on the safe side, then, your drain field should meet the following minimum requirements:

The secret is rotary action BASICALLY, A GARBAGE DISPOSER is a simple machine (as are so many other appliances. It consists of two chambers an upper and lower that are bolted together with a gasket between them to prevent water from leaking. Garbage is placed down the throat of the upper chamber. The only other part in the upper chamber is a round metal ring that has teeth cut into it. The ring, which is called a shredder, is attached to the sides of the upper chamber and extends around the entire circumference. When you drop garbage into the upper chamber, it falls on a round disc which is the flywheel or table. The flywheel may or may not have a disc attached to its top onto which the garbage falls, but this is immaterial. However, the flywheel is equipped with two or more impellers or hammers that move freely on pivots. When the flywheel is at rest, the impellers lie flat. But when the flywheel revolves, the impellers fly outward and also revolve, tossing garbage against the shredder. Garbage is ground into bits and is washed down the drain by cold water, which should be running during the entire cycle. .
