If you notice your drains are draining slowly, this may be early warning of a clogged drain. Contact a plumber immediately to diagnose the issue and clear any clog in your plumbing line. The Concierge can assist with contact information for several plumbers who have knowledge of the building plumbing. If the clog persists into the main drain, which services the whole tower, notify Management immediately so they may have the association’s plumbing vendor inspect and repair. If you have household help, make sure they also understand the following “Do’s and Don’ts”.
Do’s: First, turn on a moderate to strong flow of cold water and then turn on the disposal. Place food to be disposed of in the disposal. Continue running cold water for 15 seconds after grinding is complete to flush the drain line.
Don’ts: Don’t allow grease or fat to go into your disposal or your drain (This not only wreaks havoc on your drain and the building drain, but also on the city main drain systems. Pour grease and fat into a container and place it in your refrigerator until it becomes solid, then place it in the trash.); Don’t use hot water; Don’t fill the disposal with vegetable peels (Vegetable peels, e.g. potato peelings, when ground are likely to stop in the drain line.); Don’t grind extremely fibrous materials such as corn husks, artichokes, etc.; Don’t turn off the disposal until grinding is completed and only the sound of the motor and water is heard; Don’t put rice or pasta down as it will turn into a hard blockage in the drain line; Don’t put coffee grounds or egg shells, as they may cause the disposal to jam; Don’t put steel wool pads in the garbage disposal or dental floss down the drain; Don’t put drain cleaner down the garbage disposal, as it will damage the disposal and it could injure someone clearing a stoppage.
