Tip & How-To about Garbage Disposals

How to install garbage disposal

The one thing they don't tell you in the instruction guide is how to hold the garbage disposal in place while attempting to connect it to the drain collar.

After trying to lift, balance, and align the disposal to the point my arm was getting warn out it finally occurred to me that there was definitely an easier way. I went down to my car and got my scissors jack, put the disposal on the jack, and slowly eased it into place until it mated with the drain collar. Easy as pie from there on.

How to replace a Garbage disposal


If you buy a similar model from the same manufacturer, you can leave the sink fittings in place. Unplug the power and disconnect the waste pipe. Undo the bayonet fitting securing the waste disposal unit to the sink fitting. Fit new unit to sink fitting, reconnect waste pipe and power. Run the unit with plenty of water to check for leaks. Job done.
