Better to have garbage disposal or not?
Our 10-year-old InSinkErator is leaking and some have advised not replacing it at all as they're not good for the plumbing (I can't remember the reasons). I don't think I'd miss it so much because ours wasn't very powerful and cleaning the clogs has always been a disgusting procedure.
But if a more powerful one does a better job, then why are they not good?
I'm also wondering about what happens when we go to sell the house--will people consider that a bad feature if we don't have one?
What if we got a small one and didn't use it much? I'm thinking of the InSinkErator Evolution Compact 3/4 hp.
