Case Study: My Experience With Garbage
Things to Consider in Buying a Garbage Disposal Unit
Today, we see many high-tech tools installed in our homes including out kitchens. Even garbage disposal units today are getting their share of high technology today. While the garbage disposal may not be the star of your kitchen, it has a major role to play and that is to keep you kitchen clean and free of bacteria and odor from leftovers and garbage.
Before, kitchen garbage disposal systems were only used b y the rich, but today most homes already have one installed. Garbage stuff can be disposed in your garbage disposer including chicken bones, fruit peels, coffee grinds, and others. This makes you have less garbage to handle.
Below are some considerations to make for choosing a garbage disposal unit that is right for your new home or one to replace your old one.
The fist important thing to consider is that the garbage disposal system should be compatible with your plumbing system. If your plumbing and sewer hookups are compatible with the disposal unit, then you have to know what kind it is.
Consider the type of garbage disposal unit. Garbage disposers can be the continuous feed model or the batch feed model, which are the two common types. As the name suggest the continuous feed runs continuously as long as the switch is turned on. The batch feed model runs only when the unit cover is in place, allowing you to dispose of a limited amount of food at a time. If you want the more popular one, then buy the continuous feed model. With this model, more waste can be disposed of at one time. Batch feed models have safety features. Unless the disposer cover has been put in place, the device will not run.
Consider also the power of the disposer. There are garbage disposal models that run on one fourth horsepower motors to one horsepower motors. It would be more costly to buy the unit which uses higher power. The size of your household and the amount of waste you are disposing should determine the type of garbage disposal motor power to get.
You should also check out the connection with the dishwasher drain. The disposal unit can also flush out food particles in the dishwasher after it is ground.
The best material for a garbage disposal unit is a stainless steel one because it prevents corrosion. Invest in a durable garbage disposer if you are building a new home to delay future repairs.
Some people are particular about the noise their machine produces. Extremely loud noises can be made by these garbage disposal units. You can buy low volume disposer but they will cost you more. If you don’t mind the noise, then you can save money on a noisy model.
If you want to make your kitchen running efficiently , then you should choose the right garbage disposal unit for your home.
