  • Effects of garbage disposal on c.i. And galv. Lines

    Got a Cust. with a leaking[ internal] 8 year old Badger 5. Our homes are 55 Years old slab on grade. Another plumber said bad idea, with these old pipes. I'm putting a new one in Tue. Is there any truth to this ?

    my take has always been a disposal is a lazy mans garbage can.

    but with plenty of water before, during and after. then slowly feeding the food waste in, there is nothing wrong with normal use of a disposal.

    remember that a 2'' steel, cast iron line is like our arteries and the affect of cholesterol. some pipes can handle the load and others will need some lipitor.

      Thanks Rick. We don't use a disposal, ourselves. But this old Man is on Lipitor . Funny
