Food waste disposers don't just offer practical convenience; they provide an environmentally sound answer to the growing problem of food waste. Food waste disposers can provide an environmentally responsible alternative to transporting food waste to landfills. And they can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. At capable wastewater treatment plants, food waste can be recycled to produce renewable energy.
The Badger 5 features a one-stage grind technology that includes a GrindShear Ring that makes tough to grind foods a thing of the past as food waste is virtually liquefied to safely flow into your sewage system.
For trouble-free disposer operations remember these tips. Use cold water while operating your disposer, never pour grease or fats into your disposer or drains. To freshen your disposer, occasionally grind citrus fruit peels.

Frequently Asked Questions
How easy to replace existing badger 1 with badger 5?
Not difficult as long as you have a helper or something to prop up the replacement as you screw it into place.
I have a badger 5 it is leaking water at bottom near reset bottom plus, does a new one came with a ss ring for inside the sink?
If your garbage disposal is leaking out the bottom near the reset button, you most likely have a leak in the metal plate that is located directly under the blades. This plate is designed to protect the electrically powered parts of the motor (the rotor, the shaft, etc.) from moisture, but it is rather thin and is only made of galvanized steel. After a year or two, especially if you use highly acidic cleaners which you rinse down your sink, the zinc layer will corrode and expose the steel, which will then also start to corrode, until something hard eventually pokes some kind of hole through the plate somewhere (could be somewhere very small), signaling the end of the machine's service life. The plate is not meant to be repaired, only replaced along with the rest of the unit. That water is getting through to your rotor is an electrical hazard, and should be dealt with immediately (by removing the damaged unit). The manufacturer has figured out that the blades need to me made of stainless steel, but has chosen to skimp on making other interior parts of this more-expensive metal.
Can this unit be connected with a dishwasher?
