There are common problems that can occur with an Insinkerator or garbage disposal. If the disposal is leaking, check near the sink flange. A leak here is typically caused by lack of plumber?s putty. Force putty between the sink flange and the disposal wiping off excess putty. If the disposal is draining slow, there is probably a clog or obstruction in the line.
