“Why is my garbage disposal leaking?”

Well don’t worry you are not alone. Many people go through the same stressful thinking, including myself. We rent a home, and it comes with a garbage disposer under our kitchen sink. We thought when we moved in that “this will be great!”.

And it is, for the most part. But after an incident recently of our leaking, and leaking, and leaking. My personal opinion on our garbage disposal is…well a little negative.

  1. Sink Flange


This is the flange that rests around the lip of your sinks drain hole. It’s a metal pipe that goes down and connects to your disposer. You will find this right at the bottom of the interior of your sink.


These can become worn out over time, with your dishes bouncing off them, and water can start to leak through the plumber putty that was applied to it years ago. Look for water underneath your sinks flanged connections. You may need to run some light water over it to ensure that this is the spot. Also check for dents that may have bent your flange and opened a hole.

How To Fix It

Skill: Moderately Easy

  1. You will need to buy a replacement flange, go to a nearby hardware store or big name ones like Lowes or Home Depot [get a putty knife/Plumbers Putty if you don’t have either]
  1. Get the correct size [refer to your owner manual or measure the diameter with a tape measure]
  2. Remove your garbage disposal
  3. Clean off the old putty with a putty knife [if your flange is sealed by compression replace the screws and mounting rack instead]
  4. Lay a liberal amount of new plumbers putty around where the flange will sit on your sinks surface. Add a layer around your actual flange as well.
  5. Place new sink flange in and hold it down firmly and evenly [look at directions for how long it takes to dry]
  6. Cut off any excess putty from around your seal and reinstall your garbage disposal

Hose Connections


Any of your hose-connection points. Your outlet drain and inlet dish washer drain—if you have one.


Over time of constant flow and vibration from your garbage disposer these connections can become loose. Especially the ones that are compressed by a hose clamp wrapped around it opposed to the ones that screw directly into your unit.

How To Fix It

Skill Level: Easy

  1. Wiggle your hoses to get a feel for how loose they are
  2. Screw down any clamps or screws that are loosen so that they are firmly and securely tight using a flathead or Phillips head screwdriver
  3. If leak persists, replace clamps. If it continues than you will have to replace the hose
  4. Unscrew the hose completely at each end its connected and replace it

Interior Seal


If you have water coming out of the disposal itself than you have an interior seal that has been broken. Check underneath an all the sides to track down where it is, but you may not be able to pin point it.


Wear and tear. Over time of usage the rubber seals used to case your garbage disposal are going to begin to come apart if they are not high quality parts from a high quality manufacturer.

How To Fix It

Skill: Expert-Professional

  1. Start looking for a new garbage disposal, if they are too expensive start looking at plumbing pipe to connect to your sewer drain directly
  2. Call a professional to come install your new one

If you have an interior seal that has broken, the time you will spend removing your unit, taking it apart, and putting it back together will cost you not only time but money for replace parts. Plus, you will have to reseal the entire unit when your down fixing what the problem is inside of it.

iXL Smart Devices that Target Children

ixlsmartWith the rapid development, in the sector of entertainment and technology, all I see is people hooked on a smartphone, iPad, laptop, T.V and the list never ends. When I enter my home after a hard day of work all I am greeted with are squeaking hellos and quick hand gestures by my teenage kids from the back of the screens of their iPads and laptops, not concerned with anything going around. The only person who’s always excited to see daddy back is my 3-year-old girl. Well, I’ve never been more concerned about this technology driven culture until I saw an iXL product review targeted for 3-year olds on fisher-price.

Before I proceed, I’d like to disclaim that I have never seen this product in person and my opinion is entirely based on the promotional review posted on the website fisher-price.com which goes like, “These days, even preschoolers want cool digital devices. Wait ’til they get their hands on iXL—the learning, entertainment and media center just for kids. Like them, it’s small but powerful. Full of creative fun. And very, very smart. It flips open and turns from a book to a game player and so much more—it’s like having six digital devices in one!”

I’m pretty sure that a lot of parents would take this product as a blessing which is going to save their smartphones and laptops from their little mechanics but are we ready to get our kids hooked on technology labeled as a “toy” at such immature age? I agree that our dependency on various smart devices for the sake of connectivity, work and entertainment attracts our kids to have something similar of their own but I’m more concerned about the long-term effects of giving your children such devices at such an early stage. The given response to the previous statement could be the fact that it is better to be more technology literate at an early age to be more competitive as an adult but we don’t have any facts or statistics on how technology might re-wire the brains after years of dependency. What about the concept of playing outside, discovering the nature and other pleasant activities that we use to have in our times. I and my wife are already so worried about the amount of screen time that our kids are exposed to via laptops, T.V and you know the list.

The intention of this article is not to pick on fisher-price because they offer a lot of other kid products that let them use their imagination and other words act like kids but to point out the direction where the technology industry is headed. I don’t claim that I’m a psychologist but exposing your kids to smart devices at an early stage doesn’t seem natural to me. I would really love the opinion of other parents regarding this subject- positive or negative. Am I being too afraid? or is it really a demand of time?- let me know.

Becoming A Dad

DSC_2005_2Becoming a father is the best thing that has ever happened to me and even if I’d be crowned as the king of the world and other nearby planets, it still will be the best thing that would have ever happened to me. I love how my kids look up to me and even laugh at all of my otherwise silly acts. If it was in my hands then I would never let them grow up because I really adore the cute laughter of my loyal audience during my stand-up comedy acts. I know that is not going to happen, they’re gonna grow up and one day have their own little audiences but I cherish every moment of our interactions and hope to have grown as a comedian for the sake of our future audiences. That being said, I love being a father and I enjoy every moment of it and will always do.

A father’s influence is very important in the upbringing of a kid’s personality. Your relationship with your children plays an important role in developing you kid’s social skills and views towards different aspects of the society. It also decides that how successful your children be in their academic and professional life. In other words, you are mentoring your kids’ personality and perspective towards life. The US Department of Health and Human Services in collaboration with Ad Council is extensively working to raise awareness among men about being a more interactive and responsible father. According to their statistics, it can cause a major influence on economic development and crime control.

As our societies are evolving with the new age, so are the relationships and interactions among family members. According to the national surveys conducted by Ad Council, 86% of the fathers claim that they spend more time with their kids than their fathers did during their childhood. 7 out of 10 fathers also said that they can use tips and suggestions regarding how to be a better parent which depicts that men are more concerned about being a good parent than ever. A kid’s healthy and loving relationship with his father results in higher performance and grades at school, good self-esteem, kind-heartedness and a healthy social life. Criminal activity and drug abuse are noticed less frequent among people who had a balanced relationship with their father as a kid.

The makers of Kung Fu Panda 3, DreamWorks Animation have donated a large sum of resources for their campaign called “Take Time to be a Dad today” which is focused on raising awareness about fatherhood. The campaign also features a lot of footage and characters from the film. The film revolves around the reunion of the main character “Po” with his long-lost dad and the obstacles he is able to overcome because of his love and support. The film was released on 29 January 2016 across the USA and features famous comedian/actor/musician, Jack Black as Po and Bryan Cranston as the long-lost father.

Why I left my Apple iPhone for Nokia Lumia 1020

lumiaThey say true love only happens once in a lifetime, they say it is impossible to move on and start over with someone else but what they don’t know is, there comes a time when you don’t see things the way you use to, or you and your needs evolve with time and so does your expectations. I never thought I’d be at a point in my life where I’d insensitively leave my iPhone for another- who am I kidding, things were already falling apart between us. I’m not saying that I don’t love you anymore (actually, I am), I just don’t see you the same way anymore like I use to. Your looks are still as beautiful as the day I first met you.

Maybe it was me that didn’t pay much attention or it was you who would dress up in otter box defender case which would make your retina display look fat but the passion is far gone. At this point, you have to understand that there is nothing wrong with you, it’s me. Either my preferences have changed or maybe I’m just not the same person I use to be, I don’t want you in my life anymore. My love for you has faded. And I didn’t want to bring it down you like this but I have found someone else. Her name is what you ask? Nokia Lumia 1020, yes! She’s from the Lumia family, I know they are new in town and aren’t as popular, but the heart wants what it wants and I have made my decision.

One of the main reasons why I’m leaving you is that you would never connect with any of my friends and family over a glass of Bluetooth during any given event. You would never expand your memory or let me listen to FM radio every once in a while. Maybe it was your 8 megapixels vision or over-dependency of i-tunes, I have just had enough! I met Lumia 1020 while I was hanging out with one of my friends at the mobile shop around the corner. The first time I saw her, she mesmerized me with her bold looks and vibrant colors.

I use to think that I might never experience it but it was love at first sight! I will always cherish the memories of the time we spent together and I hope you find someone who appreciates you for what you have to offer. I consider myself lucky to be with Lumia 1020 which gives me a 48 megapixels perspective on life. She also takes care of all my white balance, shutter speed and connectivity needs. I feel happier than before and I hope you’ll find peace too. It’s over between us.
