Question about Ace Hardware InSinkErator Badger 5, 1/2 HP Garbage Disposal
My garbage disposal was poorly installed. It has been slowly leaking for some time. It finally gave way the other day, leaving me with no use of the kitchen sink until I reinstall it.
It functions fine so I don't need a new one, but the metal rings that attach to one another were encrusted with junk. (Months of slow leaking I suspect) I have removed as much as possible with scraping and use of lime away to clean up the surfaces....
Now what? I am unsure of how to reattach. Also is there particular adhesive or chaulking to better seal it?
any other wise knowledge advise. welcomed
The disposal is attache to the button of th sink by means of ring and clamps.
take a look how th ekitchen sink is mounted. the disposal is mounted the same way. you may need to get new rubber seal and a new plate for the buttom, where the screws is. you can take the ring to the near home center of plumbing store, and get a replacement.
you can use "plumber's putty", or " goop" .thing else will keep the water out.
