    Default Cool...I woke up to a leaking garbage disposal.

    I now have the day off, and I'll be changing my telcom tech hat to a plumbers hat. I really hate it when I have to do that, DIY plumbing always turns into a giant cluster for me.

    So the trip count to Home Depot will begin in a few hours.

    Yeah it can be a PIA...recently swapped my disposal out, good thing the new ones have a one step locking ring that holds it in place, not too bad. The plumbing portion is another story. Have fun.:tongue:

    Something to keep in mind (based on my own experience), is that a brand new garbage disposal might be cheaper than several runs to the store to get parts that match up with an old disposal. Check the sink gasket and check the pipe seals. If its not something that can be fixed with teflon tape, I'd just replace the unit.

    I'm not a plumber, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

    I went and bought the same model disposal from Lowes, so replacement should be easy.

    I get home, and my wife tells me the washing machine stopped. She plugged it into another outlet off an extension cord and it's running fine, so it's either the outlet or the circuit (hopefully it isn't the breaker, they're a lot more expensive than an outlet). I know I have a few bad outlets and switches in the house, so I need to go on an electrical repair offensive this weekend.
