*this is NOT a zombie question*

cleaning out the refrigerator this am
i put some sourkraut down the garbage disposer
now it is plugged!
any suggestions, short of calling some repair guy to charge me a million dollars?

i have boiled one pot of water and put in the sink

dang, why did i not just put in garbage and take the smelling half full bag out!
stupid stupid stupid

*maybe if zombies do come to the house, they can either help me with the clog issue
or i will have other issues on my hands besides a clugged garabge disposer - sorry had to

  • You can undo the piping under sink and let if fall out... OR get 'snake' I think its called at home depot. I have put a pot of rice in mine once and undid the piping under and all the rice fell out. It was still a bite clog so we got the 'snake'

  • Yes you can undo it but if you do not tighten it right it will leak so try to plunge or use the snake first.

  • Snake it. You can get a snake at a hardware store for about $25, nothing compared to what you would pay a plumber (the last time I had one out it cost us $150 and the landlord was supposed to pay for it - nope, we did). Anyway, ours hooks onto a drill and you turn on the drill and it spins the "snake" and it will move on your sauerkraut. Also, your drain pipe should be at least a 3/4 pipe that goes to your garbage disposal. If not, it will clog easily. Good luck (c:
