Helping your Service Tech Solve the Problem:

  • When you have a problem with your plumbing, AC, or other home appliance, write down what you’re experiencing and the timing. For example: the toilet turns on to refill every 10 minutes.

Achieving Your Home Improvement Goals:

  • Have a long-term plan for the home improvements your want to accomplish. 
  • Break the long-term goal down into short term goals. 
  • Finally, make actionable steps to achieve those goals.

Eating the Good Pro Tip:

Don’t need pretty meatballs?  Save time by making “meatball cubes.”  Press the uncooked meatball mixture into a 1″ thick “pancake” on a cookie sheet.  Bake in the oven until done.  Cut the flat meatball pancake into small pieces using a pizza cutter.

Garbage Disposals Tips

  • Don’t use your garbage disposal to grind up fibrous food like potato peels, Brussels sprouts, celery, broccoli, etc.
  • Don’t throw bones, egg shells or other hard objects down the disposal.

Troubleshooting Tips for a stalled Disposal:

  • If the disposal has an electric hum when turned on, but won’t grind the food, try pressing the red button on the bottom of the disposal.
  • If the red button doesn’t work, give the disposal gear a manual turn using the disposal allen wrench that came with your disposal.  The wrench can be fitted into the exterior bottom of the disposal.
  • If there is no electric hum when the disposal is turned on, make sure the breaker has not tripped.
  • Still can’t get the disposal to work?  You will need to call in a plumber to help get it working again.
