    Default Dead Disposal. Can I remove it?

    I've got a plumbing nightmare that has been going on for a few months. First the garbage disposal died, then the dishwasher. We've gotten by simply by using a little screen in the sink and dishwashing by hand, but now my disposal and dishwasher leak bad whenever I wash dishes. And the water coming smells HORRIBLE. Like rotten eggs.

    What I want to know is if it's possible to completely remove the garbage disposal and take the dishwasher out of the plumbing "loop". To simply have the sink drain out and the water to go straight to the faucet. I don't have the money to replace any non essential appliances right now.

    Is this possible? Would be it very difficult? I'd appreciate some information =)

    thank you!
