Garburator under single sink

Recommended Posts

Does anyone see a problem with this installation? A garburator has been installed under a single sink. Is it or is it not more prone to clogging?

Am I being too picky?

Why would it be more prone to clogging?

(Is there a power cord to it? Without power it will definitely be more prone to clogging.)

Not anymore prone there than anywhere else.

What makes you think it'll clog more under one sink than under one of two sinks?

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it.

I don't usually see a single sink with a garburator. Also, I have also been told by a few plumbers that they don't recommend them as people often put the wrong things down there like stringy veggies, rice and starchy foods like potatoes which can cause clogging. With only one sink, and a clog then it can be a hassle.

I see a lot of homes with hammer arrestors common on PEX systems.

Thanks again guys...

Even with two sinks. Usually both would be piped and trapped to the same drain. I have a single sink with disposal for over 30 years. No clogs. Just replace the disposal every ten years or so.
