Kitchen Drainage System Explained

In your home, the kitchen boasts a drainage system utilizing gravity to eliminate wastewater. Commonly known as a drain-waste-vent system (DWV), it ensures efficient wastewater disposal.

When water descends the drain, it navigates through the trap—a distinctive S-shaped pipe positioned beneath the kitchen sink. While the majority of water travels down the drainpipe to the sewer, a portion remains in the trap. This retained water serves as a barrier, preventing sewer gases from backing up through the drain.

Issues with slow or ineffective drainage might indicate a clogged S-pipe. For persistent clogs, seeking assistance from a professional drain cleaning is advisable.

Completing this system is the vent, a small pipe protruding from your roof. These vents play a vital role by allowing air into the drainpipes, ensuring smooth movement of wastewater. The presence of these air vents maintains the balance necessary for proper drainage, preventing any potential obstructions or inefficiencies.

Garbage Disposal

Thinking about incorporating a garbage disposal into your kitchen sink or replacing an older unit that’s no longer functioning? It’s a decision you won’t regret! Having a reliable disposal significantly enhances the convenience of food preparation and cleanup.

Garbage Disposal Repair

Although garbage disposals are sturdy appliances meant to endure extended periods of heavy usage, they’re not impervious to issues. Here are common indications that signal it’s time to arrange for garbage disposal repair:

  • No response when activating the wall switch: Ensure the disposal is connected and check for tripped circuit breakers. If resetting the unit via the button on its base fails, seeking professional servicing may be necessary.
  • Humming sound but no food grinding: This often indicates a jammed flywheel. Utilize a 1/4-inch Allen wrench to clear the jam from the unit’s base. Alternatively, carefully use a broom handle down the drain (avoid using your fingers) to dislodge the flywheel.
  • Inefficient food grinding: Over time, disposal blades can dull or wear out. Restoring functionality might involve sharpening the blades or replacing the grinding mechanism.
  • Leakage from the disposal: A damaged hose or seal could be causing this issue. A plumber from Jackson Plumbing will meticulously inspect the unit to pinpoint and resolve the leak.
  • Operative disposal but stagnant sink drainage: This points to a blockage deeper within the pipe. Avoid using drain cleaners and instead, opt for professional drain cleaning services by contacting a plumber.


Is it safe to use the dishwasher when the garbage disposal is not functioning?
Certainly! If your dishwasher is linked to the garbage disposal, ensure you rinse off any sizable food particles before loading them into the dishwasher for cleaning.
How can you eliminate unpleasant odors from the garbage disposal?
To naturally freshen your garbage disposal, try this simple method: Sprinkle half a cup of baking soda into the disposal, then add vinegar and let it sit for 15 minutes. Another quick refresh involves placing half a lemon down the disposal. If these DIY methods don't work, consider seeking assistance from our drain cleaning experts!
Does a Garbage Disposal need to be cleaned out?
Though you don't have to clear your garbage disposal entirely, regular maintenance is crucial for cleanliness. For optimal performance, aim to clean it every 2-3 weeks. Frequent cleaning helps prevent unpleasant odors and food decay, ensuring your disposal operates efficiently.
What causes my sink to drain at a sluggish pace?
A slow-draining sink often results from a buildup of grease, food residue, or other debris within the pipes. Our skilled kitchen plumber in can efficiently remove the blockage and offer advice on preventing such buildups in the future.
Are chemical drain cleaners safe for my kitchen plumbing?
Chemical drain cleaners offer a temporary solution for small clogs but can harm pipes over time and pose health risks. For persistent or tough clogs, it's safer to rely on professional assistance from Goodman Plumbing.
If your dishwasher fails to drain properly, what steps should I take?
If your dishwasher fails to drain correctly, it may be caused by a filter or drain hose clog, an issue with the air gap, or a malfunctioning drain pump. Although basic tasks like cleaning the filter can be attempted at home, it's advisable to seek our team's assistance to prevent potential damage to your appliance.
