Anyhow. Today I was running water when I noticed the water on the cold side of kit faucet kept running warm (92°F to be exact). No matter how long I ran it. Isn't even that warm in dead of summer here (SoFlo). It finally straightened itself out; but I wonder if one could've had something to do with the other. Either that or that the stupid disposal has been jury rigged so much. The tech who replaced the components did raise up the disposal on his first visit, "so it'll have to work that much harder" to backwash gunk into the DW. It really did look like the schmutz in there, but never came off w/o chemical help and even then not all.
The faucet is a cheap POS that has also been jury rigged a couple or more times. It's one that you lift the lever & swing it whichever way.
