Disposer Continuous Feed and Batch Feed Differences

A disposer grinds food into small particles allowing it to pass through plumbing. Garbage disposers (disposals)are safe to use with septic tanks. GE Appliances disposers have a powerful grinding action that reduces food waste to small particles, they are safe for any properly sized and maintained septic system.

There are two styles of disposers: Continuous feed and Batch feed.

Continuous Feed:

Continuous feed disposers operate with a switch (on/off) and running water. These have a splash guard to prevent debris from splashing out. A stopper is included with the disposer.
