Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a continuous and batch-feed garbage disposal?

A continuous feed garbage disposal continues to run once the switch is turned on; this allows you to add food and waste while the disposal is running. A batch feed garbage disposal will run only when a stopper is in place over the sink opening, making it a good choice for a household with small children.

What's the difference between a garbage disposal air button and a wall switch?

Both serve the same purpose in different ways: An air switch button employs air pressure to activate a garbage disposal, while a standard wall switch uses electricity to start the unit.

How long does a garbage disposal last?

On average, a garbage disposal can last over ten years with proper care. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the items you can grind, and what items to avoid, to help the garbage disposal last longer.

Are garbage disposals difficult to maintain?

Garbage disposals are not difficult to maintain. Some tips to keep your unit functioning properly:

  • Run cold water through the unit before, during, and after grinding waste
  • Use a deodorizer or grind citrus peels regularly to freshen the disposal
  • Never leave food inside the disposal for long periods
  • Remove silverware and other hard objects that fall into the unit before operation
