Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Do you stock disposers in something other than the standard 110/120volt?"
A. Because we ship strictly to the U.S., there is really no need for us to stock other voltages. We buy in volume and we only buy/sell the U.S. voltage disposers.
Q. "My garbage disposer smells! Is there anything that I can do besides buying a new one?"
A. Generally the simple solution to this is to clean the disposer by having it grind up a few cups of ice and some table salt. This helps to cut the grease and slime off the sides of the disposer. Then flush it out with cold water followed by half of a lemon or lime to deodorize.
Q. "Should I be adding enzymes/bacteria to my disposer or septic tank whenever I use my disposer?"
A. Not in our opinion. There are even disposers that add enzymes every time that you use that disposer. From what we have read, bacteria grow naturally after initially being introduced (mostly by nature) into septic tanks, and no additional enzymes/bacteria need to be introduced. From our perspective, adding additional enzymes/bacteria each time seems like a waste of money and resources. One additional note, our Leader wishes to encourage you to use composting and not throwing all wastes down your food disposers. Save the Planet and recycle as much as possible.
Q. "I've heard that garbage disposers waste harms septic tanks. Any truth to that?"
A. We have yet to read any study that reflects that. Some cities have banned disposers and then, later changed their minds and allowed them, such as New York. From what we know, food disposer waste gets consumed by bacteria in sewage treatment plants and septic tanks.
