Older Septic Tank and Garbage Disposal
Posted by Carolyn Asfalg on August 18, 2002 at 13:49:08:
There are a total of 4 units in our condo complex,2 with disposals and 2 without.Recently we had a problem with our sink backing up when the upstairs condo used her sink or dishwasher and garbage disposal.Also a pipe broke.The plumber said that a garbage disposal should not be used.Could you tell me if these 2 units are causing problems for us who do not have a garbage disposal. And could their continued use do damage to the septic system? I'm not sure if you can help me as I'm not too good on the computer but I could use some help! Thank you very much
