Size of disposal

sjhockeyfan325November 18, 2013

Sorry, I would have appended this question to my previous thread about disposals, but I couldn't find it.

In the past, we always had the 1.0 HP disposal. However, now we compost almost everything and just use the disposal for sink scraps. Is 1.0 HP overkill and would 3/4 HP work fine for that purpose?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

We have 3/4 HP. Our little composter (guinea pig) recently died, so I am using the disposal more :( It works fine for us, sounds like it will be enough for you.
