Replacing Garbage Disposal
Posted by penc on June 23, 2004 at 21:55:43:
I'm considering replacing the garbage disposal myself and would like to know what I'm getting into. Being female the strength tighting worries me, and frankly the mess factor.

Would you please give me some idea of the "unclog the line" type issues. Also what to expect when you open the drain bend/elbow thing. I've never run an auger but this is an old building. The plumbing hook up includes a dishwasher (who's input value is broken so it fills with water - I cut it off at the wall valve after a few days of draining it. Duh). Dishwasher drain goes through the garbage disposal.

What I'm really asking here is would Beverly DeJulio attempt a replacement situation, not just an new installation? Or should I just "call the man". I'm reasonable adept but hate to start something that I can't finish. Like trying to cut your own hair and having to go to the hair dresser anyway.
