Your post reminds me of the time when I had extensive plumbing problem at my home, moreover the incompetent local plumbers, whom I called up in hurry, damaged the floor badly. I made a great effort to look around for reliable plumbers after this big fiasco, and contacted Aames Plumbing by chance. I now, rely upon these guys for all my plumbing repair jobs. They also keep providing plumbing advice and tips to their customers!

Great discussion here. :) Truly, garbage disposals aren't a big deal nowadays since the issue is quite tolerable compared to other issues. But it must still be monitored. Tinkering with tanks can be hazardous and costly if done wrong.

Sewer Backup in Aurora IL

Very informative post. I have a garbage disposal in my home and there seems to be an odor coming from the sink drain. I was going to just try to fix it myself, but after reading this article I think it would be best to hire a professional. Thanks for the advice!


Thanks for posting. Garbage disposals need to be treated with respect because of the environmental impact they can have. Not to mention, the last thing you want is to have a sewer backup and need to call a plumbing company for a repair. Lots of times, putting the wrong material down a disposal can make for drain backups too.
