Then let the water run for a few seconds to be sure all waste is flushed through the drain. 4. A food waste disposer can be used with a septic tank. The tank t however, must meet minimum FHA standards for tanks to be used with disposers. Also you may have to clean the tank a year or so sooner than normal, 'say manufacturers. ' 5. A disposer is self-cleaning because of the scouring and flushing action of waste and water. Do not use drain- cleaning chemicals, as they may damage the-disposers interior. ~ v f. Do not overload the disposer or pack waste in tightly. Dispose of food waste as it accumulates. Water must flow freely and , the .food must come in contact with the shredding elements. 7. If you have an auto- ma t i c dishwasher * that drains through the disposer, clear the disposer before using the dishwasher so the stored waste will not back up into sink or dishwasher. 8. A lemon or orange peel put through the grinder will rid the disposer of odors. • Dual detergent dispensers • Plate-warmer setting . • Telescoping top rack •• Concealed easyrroll casters Filter Clean Portable Dishwasher • 6 pushbutton cycle selections • Westinghouse Sanitizer • Self-cleaning filter • White'porcelain-on-steel tub, not plastic • Exclusive TiJt-Guard Door • Multi-level washing action • Lighted Cycle-line dial • Maple lift-off cutting board top • Rinse wetting agent dispenser -'• Concealed power cord and hose compartment • Aerator and water release button • Silverware basket with covered compartment ..... ...--. - Model SFK6A .......
