You take it for granted, but previous generations did not know the conveniences of the garbage disposal and the dishwasher. No, they toiled away scraping food into the trash and washing dishes by hand. Then they joyously smiled as they scoured the porcelain kitchen sink clean while wearing special ceremonial cleaning dresses.
Now those days are gone in most areas of the country, and we are a pampered lot all used to our kitchen cleaning appliances. And of those appliances, the smallest and most powerful of all is the 1 HP garbage disposal.
Unlike your forefathers (OK, mostly foremothers) you take it for granted and dump tonight's leftovers down the drain while the garbage disposal works away. But did you ever think to know how it actually works or what is inside this thing?
Well I've demystified all that for you in the tutorial Anatomy of a Garbage Disposal. In it I'll show you how the garbage disposal works and what pieces and parts make up this little giant.
And for repairs and troubleshooting, don't forget to read the popular tutorial Garbage Disposal Troubleshooting. (Original title, yes?)
