QUESTION from fubar on 8/22/2009
i'm removing my dishwasher and i want to know if there is a way to plug the inlet drain to the garbage disposal or do i have to buy a new disposal


Dear fubar:

Many brands of garbage disposals have a "knockout" plug that is removed when you connect it to a dishwasher.

I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your garbage disposal ("Google" their name, and they should have a toll-free customer service number), and ask them if two things:

1) for their particular brand/model of disposal, can the knockout plug be replaced after it has been removed; and

2) can then send you a knockout plug.
