The installation of a waste grinder, which can turn garbage into dust completely, sends sewage water to the sewer in modern homes. A food waste chopper is an electric machine that grinds inedible components like bones, pasta, veggies, fruits, and grains. Installing a waste disposer in your kitchen will keep pests and odours out while still allowing you to recycle leftovers. Garbage disposal units are a must-have for any home nowadays. In this article, we give you all the information you should know before buying one.

A new garbage disposal

The best way to buy new garbage disposal is in a store. There, you can see different models and choose the one that suits your needs. However, if this isn't possible for you, we recommend shopping online. Don't worry: there are many reputable websites selling quality products at affordable prices. However, you need to take care of some key elements before making a purchase:

- Capacity: you need to choose the capacity that corresponds to your needs. If you think that your household wastes a lot of food, we recommend buying a more extensive unit;

- Power: the power of the garbage disposal depends on what type of waste is disposed of and how it will be used. The more powerful the unit, the better it grinds food waste.

- Noise: garbage disposals can be extremely loud when in use. To avoid this problem, look for units with insulation to reduce noise while grinding;

- Energy efficiency: if you want to save money on your bills, choose a disposal model with good energy efficiency. This will reduce your electricity costs by up to 40%.

Two types of garbage disposals are available depending on the material they can get rid of food waste or all kinds of waste, including bones. Waste disposers are usually suitable for light use. However, if you generate a lot of food waste in your home, buying a device with a greater grinding capacity is advisable. The most powerful units can even process bones, which are considered challenging types of waste.

A garbage disposer will help you take care of the environment by recycling waste instead of sending it to landfills.

To install a food waste disposer with an electrical cover plate, you must remove the old kitchen sink flange and replace it with an electrical cover plate. Then, you should attach the discharge pipe to the electrical cover plate and connect this section to your new garbage disposal unit.

Benefits of garbage disposal for homeowners

Garbage disposal units and food waste grinders provide several benefits for homeowners, including:

• Reduces the amount of garbage you send to a landfill

• Keeps odours from building up in your kitchen by grinding food scraps just before they enter your home's drain trap system. As a result, many people say their plumbing lines smell clean instead of when food scraps can decompose in the drainpipe connection.

• Convenient way of turning unwanted foods into compost for flowers and plants

Waste disposal units come in two different types: continuous feed disposals and batch feed disposals. Continuous-feed garbage disposal units are activated by a wall switch, while batch-feed models must be turned on by moving an arm that protrudes into the sink flange. The choice between these two types is up to you, although batch-feed units are known for lowering noise levels when in use due to their lack of a "sneeze guard" over the drain opening.

• Reduces the amount of organic waste in your home's septic system

• A garbage disposal unit can help expedite the cooking process

Tools and materials:

- Waste disposer

- Drain and dishwasher hookup kit and mounting assembly (to connect the disposer to your sink's drain)

- Adjustable wrench or slip-joint pliers for tightening fittings together

- Tube cutter for cutting discharge tube to the proper length

- Plumber's putty

- Hob pliers (if your drain is a type that screws into the mounting assembly and not a compression fitting)

- Drain cleaner and gloves

Installation features

To convert it into a preparation area, the sink mounting assembly must be removed and the drain connected to the sewage system and electricity supply. Water will accumulate in the corrugated pipe, allowing food particles to develop and decay. If the sink drain hole is 90 millimetres in diameter, connecting equipment to it should be sufficient. Remove electrical cover plate. Disconnect screws that attach to the frame of the cover plate using an adjustable wrench. Remember that some electrical hookup schematics are not alike, so ensure you know what kind of wiring setup you have before proceeding with this step.

- Connect handholds of the disposer to sink mounting assembly using screws provided in the kit

- Load some grease into the unit's throat

- Connect the dishwasher drain line to the opening on the bottom of the disposer, which is labelled for this purpose

- Install electrical cover plate onto disposer. Turn screws until they lock in place. The opposite side of the cover has a hole that needs to fit over the outlet pipe from your dishwasher, so run the dishwasher drain hose into that hole and then tighten the screw-style clamp onto it

- Turn the electrical switch on. If disposer does not start, flip the toggle switch on top to off position and try again

If the installation is not done correctly, your waste disposer may malfunction. Contact your local plumber for assistance getting a waste disposer installed in your home.

Do not connect the chopper yourself!

To install a waste disposer, you'll need to call for a plumbing service. Never take on an operation without understanding basic plumbing and electrical skills. In addition, it is critical to provide a moisture-proof connection for the equipment, and if it is not feasible to connect the gadget directly, give a specialized adaptor.

Turn off electricity to the unit with mounting screws. Use an adjustable wrench to remove the plate covering the electrical outlet located on top of the disposer. Disconnect water supply to disposer by unscrewing faucet connections with adjustable pliers.

Drain pipe connection is made by threading the discharge tube onto the inlet connection of the sink drain mounting bracket assembly. Use pliers to tighten the line, taking care not to cross-thread it.
