    We have a granite counter without a hole to receive the air gap for our dishwasher. I set it up underneath the counter top when we bought the house 4 years ago, propped it upright, and it has worked fine since then. Until a few days ago, when it started discharging a lot of water. I...

    Just bought a deeper sink and am concerned about the height of the disposer. Looking at my current setup, I have 2 inches difference from the disposer drain height and the line into the wall; my new sink is 2 inches deeper so it looks like they will be even. 1. Is it ok for the disposer two...

    I want to swap out our double-basin kitchen sink for a large single basin. However, whenever I find how-to information it always assumes the two sinks from the double connect under the sink and travel to the wall via a single pipe. But in sink, each drain travels into the wall separately where...

    I posted a bit ago but didn't get any replies so I am making clearer post. My newer garbage disposal has stopped draining. When you turn it on the water is pumped down the drains fine, unless there is a large amount of water in the disposal side and then it will back flush into the sink side...

    Water backs up at the garbage disposal and will not drain until the disposal is turned on. I've made sure the sink drain was not clogged, and even used a plunger on the disposal. Otherwise the disposal works fine so I'm not sure what else could be wrong. Any thoughts?

  8. Landscaping & Lawn Care
    I am looking to do some re-landscaping at my house, and will be generating a large amount of excess dirt (20-30 cy). Does anyone have any suggestions for a cheap way to get it hauled off or disposed of? It won't be clean, there will be sod, a bit of roots, and some concrete mixed in, plus...

    Hello all, I have potentially a two-part question: 1) My kitchen garbage disposal (which, as best as I can tell is ~12 years old; it was there when I moved in) has started leaking. The odd thing is that the water is leaking out from under the bottom of the disposal. When I run water into...

    I just finished a remodel of my basement and in the process, I managed to put all kinds of stuff down my sink that shouldn't have been put down there, including drywall compound, grout, paint, you name it. Yes, I know, this was dumb. Needless to say, my garbage disposal is pretty badly gunked...

    I don't know what's going on with my kitchen sink. It's a double sink, and one side has always worked perfectly, but the other side (the side with the garbage disposal) has always drained poorly. Each side of the sink has a separate p trap that goes into the wall. I don't know what happens to...
  12. Flooring
    I have 9"x9" vinyl tiles that I popped off the floor of our small (12' x 12') bedroom. Most are whole, a few broke into large pieces. They fit into two cardboard boxes (each the size of a milk crate). I understand these tiles may contain asbestos. Is there a legal and affordable way for me to...

    Hey - general question here on in sink disposals... I ripped out the kitchen a couple months ago, saved the disposal knowing I wanted to get a new one, but to compare stats on when buying so I knew what would fit, etc., and it go thrown out along the way. :jester: A few questions as I begin to...

    Got a small 13" copper prep sink in a kitchen island with a 2" drain. Anybody know of a company selling garbage disposals to fit 2" drains? If not, any ideas of how to apply a 3" disposal to a 2" drain opening? Thx.
