Two types of garbage disposals: continuous feed vs. batch feed
Garbage disposals are available as continuous feed as well as batch feed models. Continuous feed garbage disposals are those that have a power switch that you turn on and off to control the power of your disposer. A batch feed disposer has a special strainer that you put inside the drain and acts as a key to turn the unit on. Generally speaking, a continuous feed is useful if you have large amounts of waste to grind. Still, the manufacturer recommends running water while the power is on, so if water is an issue as in some rural areas, this is a matter to consider. Batch feed is suitable for smaller amounts of waste and does offer added safety since foreign objects cannot fall in the disposal while it is running.
We are more than happy to help you decide on the appropriate model to meet your household demands.Contact Us
