Rated 4 out of 5 by stargazer quiet, septic friendly, not quite as powerful as one it replaced
This disposal was recommended and installed by a contractor to replace an ancient (different brand) disposal during a recent kitchen update and works well. I especially like that it is septic system friendly. It is very quiet. My only problems with it are that it is a bit harder to get the food scraps into the disposal than with the old one it replaced and it is not quite as powerful. You need to be a bit more patient and make sure pieces are small. I jammed or possibly overheated, the InSinkErator once trying to grind up a rotten cabbage, even though I was using lots of water, but the anti jam tool worked great, so didn't need any help getting it back to working order. I learned from the experience to make pieces smaller and not to put as much in at one time. I haven't had any other trouble with it since. I think this is a fine product and would recommend it to a friend.

It took us 10 yrs to get to our kitchen remodel and I finally got the Insinkerator that I've wanted! Its quiet, efficient and the best thing is it won't clog our septic system! It was worth the wait.

We have been years without a disposal since we bought this house with a septic system. It is tremendous to have a disposal that functions with a septic system. The disposal is so quiet that you wonder whether it is actually running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doug65 This product is very quiet
We replaced our old septic assist insinkerator that we had used for 15 years it finally cracked down the side on the inside of the housing. After I installed the new model and turned it on I thought there was a major problem for I could hardly here it run, thought for sure it was in a bind. Then I realized it was actually working properly what a major difference in how quiet this new model is over our old one. Great job! much improved. Very pleased to this point just hope it lasts for at least the next 15 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Slugger1950 Quality product
This is my second Septic Assist Insinkerator after having my previous one for 11 years. It developed an internal leak. This one is much quieter, and does an equally good job of chopping waste material. When you pick one up, you can tell it is a quality product. It is a little larger in diameter than my old one so I had to shorten my crossover pipe to my drain pipe a little. No big deal though. Still as easy to install as the old one. I'm sure this one will last even longer than the 11 years of my old one.

The disposal is heavy duty, quiet, and works well. Installation not too bad, but the unit is rather heavy. That's OK. Remains to be seen how the added squirt of Bio-Charge affects our septic system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marmotridge Is it running. ?
I received a replacement for my 12 year old Insinkerator that had developed a leak through the bottom of the body. Within a couple of hours I had the new unit hooked up and running.
The only problem was that the new unit is so quiet that I thought, at first, that it was not running. It was. I have never heard a garbage disposer that produced nearly no noise. It is amazing.
My only question is, "Should a garbage disposer leak after only twelve years?"

Rated 5 out of 5 by HGrant Quiet... Love it.
Maybe I just haven't been around enough to experience the new disposals, but this is nice. I have always had the Insinkerator brand, but the last one I bought was 12+ years ago.
Very happy with this unit.
