Hi, my name is Joe Wise. I’m the owner of Buildwise Construction in Orlando, Florida and today we’re going to over how to install a garbage disposal.
Now, we’re going to hook up the waste pipes coming off to disposal. Now this is something that I use to get a lot of different types of pipe for. You look and see basically what you need and by a couple extras. I always buy one of the flex hose because you can normally use it on two or three different places. You know along the supply line like this, different types of P-traps depending on how or what you're connected too on the wall. And you need just have to have patience and feed it altogether.
So, right now we’re going to hook it up. We’re going to start with the discharge tube on the disposal. Now this discharge tube on the disposal has a rubber gasket that you put in place right here. You put the plates over your pipe like that. Put it right over there like that. Then we’re going to put the flange over and put the screws in. Careful not to cross toward your screws you want to go in nice and straight. You should be able by hand tight in them until you get them on and there a little further. Try to put this gasket on a straight so you want tight a little bit of them on both sides. Give you a nice flush appearance because there so get a nice seat in there so it doesn’t leak. What does is that once you push it that against that plate, the plunge plate gives you a nice word tight seal.
So, it‘s not bad in right there. I’m going to put a plastic nut and connectors on here. I'm going to shove that all the way in and I’m going to take the piece of fork’s hose fitting, put that on there and tighten it up. This time I leave it —just hand tight just a little bit at least for now. We’ll come back and snug it up in a minute.
Now, we’re going to come off the sink strainer and we have the dishwasher on this so we have to have a dishwasher discharge tube so we bought a piece that has a discharged tube built in. I'm going to I attach this to the flange, the point of discharge tube towards the dishwasher pipes that’s coming out, I'm going to hand tight these. It’s ready to come down with it the section of pipe so when the piece is coming over from the disposal, slip it up underneath the tail pipe, sure when I cross and turn in these things, very easy to do, go ahead and connect that and we’re going to put our P-trap on right here.
Again, don’t close the disc or they will leak. Get all those hand tight, leave them on just a little bit loosely. We’re just going to see how everything is fit and make sure that and looks like it’s under a bind here then I’m going to go back and tight this up and all I’m going to do is hand tighten them. If you strip one off, it’s going to leak. So, you don’t want to strip it off. You just want to get it hand tight. Give those connectors there’s a chance to work.
Now, we’re going to put the dishwasher disposal tube back on, as you can see we have to go get another end piece at hardware store. It will dry on this hose and gave us a little bit of outlet so we can put it on—over that. We’re going to snug that up, just like that. Make sure that’s not turning. And now we’re going to finish it up this garbage disposal installation by turning the electricity back on, testing that the motors running and then we have a wired properly that we don’t have any leaks in our waste system.
