Garbage Disposal

QUESTION FROM Tyson

I accidently puncture a hole in the neck of the garbage disposal, what is the best way to fix it?

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear Tyson:

When you say the "neck" of the garbage disposal, did you mean the "splash guard", as shown in this photo:

FOLLOW-UP FROM Tyson

it really is more like filange http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=b119a2i1394319&PartID=1394319

Also if I order the filange will the washer come with it? What other parts to I need to order to replace?

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear Tyson:

You should double check with whoever you are ordering the flange from, to see if the gasket needs to be ordered separately.

Also, you will need some plumber's putty for when you are re-installing the new flange.

Here is a video on how to replace a garbage disposal, that you might find helpful:
