I purchased this model to replace a 10 year old GE when we installed new countertops/sinks. My cousin installed one in his new home and said it worked well and was very quiet. I used the electircal cord from the GE unit for the install. The installation took about 30 minutes. The most difficult part was getting the snap ring installed. I tried using the disposal to hold the sink flange in place but it wasn't heavy enough. I had my wife push down on the sink flange from above. This worked like a charm and the snap ring went in easily. I highly recommend this model.

The product worked well for about 6 years and then I noticed water in my custom cabinet coming from under the Insinkerator 500. The water did some damage and warped the wood. I researched the problem and found that a seal inside the unit (flywheel seal) very often fails allowing water to drain out of the bottom of the unit. It appears that this is a design flaw or possibly built in obsolescence since there are a great many blogs on this issue. I purchased another of the same and hopefully the company has corrected the problem. I am saving the old unit and will try to find a replacement seal to fix as a backup unit. No luck finding the seal so far. I find it odd that it does not show on the parts diagram...

Product did not work for me

By greg64

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

got the first one installed and it did not work. Took it back to the store and got another one. Had it all wired up but after installation it works but is grinding like the bearings are bad. I paid someone to install it who has done many of these. So basically it works but is loud.

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

Very happy with the product so far. Only minor critique would be noise, but that isn't an option with something that disintegrates food, I guess. Not loud, just wish it was a bit quieter. Love the fact that the top rubber piece lifts out for easy cleaning and easier access to see if something is in chamber that doesn't belong.

Great garbage disposer

By chufferlover

from Milwaukee, WI

Verified Buyer

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

Didn't realize how important a garbage disposer was until mine broke and caused issues with my sink draining. It was a different brand and only a few years old. As they say, you get what you pay for. Really happy with my new Evolution Essential. Surprised at how quiet it is, especially because it's so powerful. Can't really rate ease of installation because I hired a plumber to install, but it didn't take him long so I'm assuming it wasn't difficult.

I didn't know how much I loved and would miss a disposal until I lived in a home that was on septic; NEVER AGAIN. This particular disposal works great, has great power, and gets that food outta the drain lickety split. I would buy another one, and would recommend this product to anyone.

The only reason I purchased your product is I did not want to spend a fortune reconfiguring the plumbing under my sink. My plumbing is configure specifically for your disposal. The prior disposal only lasted 24 months (awful)

Good Replacement Disposal

By NCgrinder

from Charlotte, NC, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

Once I figured out I would need to redo the plumbing to fit this disposal it all came together. This disposal was almost 2 inches shorter at the discharge than the existing one. Rather than add a second trap, I removed the old plumbing and installed new PVC pipes to fit this unit. The first time I installed the sink adapter, the retaining spring worked its way between the disposal and the sink causing a leak in the seal. The retaining spring seemed to easily dislodge when mounting the disposal. Once everything lined up it went together nicely.

Downsize to Badger 1

By IDidIt

from Gainesville FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

The old 1/2 disposer began leaking because the drain screws rusted and came loose from the motor body. We purchased the smaller replacement Badger 1..

The installation went without a major problem. A quick trip to the store was required to get a fitting to connect the disposal to the drain.

We are very satisfied with the result. The smaller unit works fine and should last a long time

Comments about ACE HARDWARE InSinkErator Badger 5 1/2HP Disposal (BADGER5):

My old Badger 5 rusted and leaked after many years of good service. I read the recommendations on which disposal I needed and went with the Badger 100. It was extremely easy to install except for replacing the power cord. I used the old cord and installed it in the new disposal. It works well, it is quiet and I'm extremely happy. Yes I would recommend it.
