Garbage disposal leaking from bottom
 
My garbage disposal leaking from bottom, is there a fix for it? Or does it need to be replaced?

Does that happen often?

Time for a new one. I see it every couple of months, and there is nothing you can do. Hundred bucks for a badger 5 is easy money if you use it often (or the wife does :laughing:)

Well fine then, apparently the wife likes fancy disposals :laughing: put in whatever you want, they'll all make sausage just fine :chef:

I had a badger 1 in the already, 1/3hp, should I go with the badger 5?

I like the badger 5 for residential applications. They are nice disposals. Don't forget to knock the plug out for your dishwasher hookup if that's where your dishwasher drains.

Sears disposers use the same motor as ISE

badger 5 is a good basic disposal and the smallest one you should get. If you wanna spend a little bit more, the ISE Evolution compact is around 170 at depot, 3/4 HP, runs quieter, and is a much better quality :thumbsup:

I installed a 3 phase ss-75 insinkerator awhile back (commercial kitchen). What a beast that thing was.

My dish washer appears to drain to a pipe and not through the disposal.

The store didn't have the badger so I got a similar one.

How do I connect the black piece to the white piece? There are no threads on the black piece.

TIA

With a slip nut and beveled washer like the one on the left pipe.

MY complaint with the Badger series is they are very noisy. The uooer end ISE's are much quieter. And $200 vs $100.

Actually the one I had worked, looks like they are suppose to tighten themselves as the nut is screwed in.
