Types of Garbage Disposals

Garbage disposals come in different brands, motor powers, and sizes. Our expert plumbers can install any type of garbage disposal.

Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal

A continuous feed garbage disposal runs continuously after the operator activates the switch. The unit stops only after turning the switch off. Most models include an automatic reverse function to avoid jams. Some models also feature splash guards to prevent items from flying back out of the disposal during operation. Continuous feed disposals work well in commercial kitchens and homes where safe operation is less of an issue.

Batch Feed Garbage Disposal

Batch feed models work in batches and offer more safety than continuous feed models. The batch feed unit only runs when the stopper covers the disposal opening. Plus, the operator must turn on the activation switch. These models work great for homes with kids who may stick things down the disposal. The stopper prevents objects from falling into the disposal or accidents occurring while the disposal runs.

We are happy to discuss the pros and cons of each unit. We’ll work with you to recommend the best option to meet your needs and budget.

  • Run the water continuously while operating the disposal
  • Use cold water when processing food waste
  • Safely clean the inside of the unit to remove grease and other debris that build up over time
  • Check for any unwanted objects in the unit before running, like utensils, bottle caps, or other small objects
