Do I need to open the faucet on the sink while using a garbage disposer?

Yes, this is very important. Otherwise the unit will be unable to grind the waste. Moreover cold water allows grease and oil in the food waste to solidify, which in turn is broken down by the impeller. Even after the waste is flushed through, continue running water for 10 more seconds to wash away any remaining scraps.
