This basic disposer was very easy to install and is performing well (light user). The only negative is the fact it does not come with an electrical cord - not a major issue since cords are easy to purchase but from my view it's lame that you have to purchase it separately.

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...

Great disposal

By djvanrand

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

This disposal was purchased and installed by the builder of my new home. Although I've only been using it 2 months, it works great and I don't expect to have a problem with it. I had a Badger in my previous home and never had an issue with it.

We've had the disposal for a couple of months now and love it! It's quiet and efficient and was actually very easy to install. It gets the job, no problems! (We put everything in it except bones even though it says you can) I would recommend it to anyone looking for a disposal.

      Best Uses

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

        Replaced a 11 year old model that died recently. Since the last one was an Insinkerator installation took only 10 minutes start to finish. The new rubber bushings at the sink and pipe attachments are great for two reasons: 1 this thing is so quiet you almost don't know it's running, 2. It gives you a little "play" with installation of the drain. I like the double grind feature, we have an old house with old pipes that sometimes clog, hoping the double grind will help lessen the amount of clogs. I would have rather had a lower price point and not get the air switch since I was replacing a unit with a dedicated switch and I have stone counters so I cannot ups the air switch if I wanted to. Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet reliable disposal.

            A plumber installed it so I have no comment other than he had no problems, and that was all of 2 weeks ago so i have no comment on reliability or longevity (though I had an InSinkErator in my old house and it lasted forever, so I'm not concerned).

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

            A nice, quiet disposal that does what it's supposed to do. Easy installation but I had it installed and then figured out I needed to have the serial number for the warranty. I didn't crawl under the sink again. As a side note my wife and I attended a builder's open house that weekend and really liked one model that was @3000+ sq ft and well over a half million. Guess what was under the sink. Badger 1.

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

            It was not difficult to replace old unit. It works and it does what it is there for, what more can I want. Now if it lasts over 20 years like the old one did that will be when I know it did a great job. Right now it is too soon to judge on dependability since it is still new, the true test is longevity.

                    The Badger 1does an excellent job at disintegrating any biodegradable material I put into it. It is efficient enough to work with my septic tank. But yet quiet enough not to disturb someone watching TV even though my kitchen opens directly into the living room.

                      This is a typical Insinkerator unit... great quality and robust... but, I seem to have water flow problems with then new twin level design... seems water is not draining fast enough into the plumbing and has a tendency to flow into my dishwasher .... never had this problem with my previous insinkerator... this seems to happen when water is constantly flowing into the unit...and it will fill and hold water.... not typical... must make sure the unit is running... this seems to help.... outside of filling up with water, it is flawless...

                      We bought our house about 4 years ago. It had been vacant for about 4 years also. Everything worked OK for a couple of years, and one day this past December my wife told me under the sink was wet and she thought it was from the dishwasher. After investigation I found some hairline cracks in the upper housing of the disposal. I tried the epoxy repair route, and thought I had corrected the problem, but we had continued leaking. I bought a new Insinkerator and when I removed the old one I found another crack around the back side which had not been visible from the front view. New one installed--no more leaks ! Unit works well and is much quieter than the old one; although the old one did work fine.

                            I am disappointed that it can't handle some of the vegetable scraps that I have tried to put down it, like onion skin and butternut squash peelings. It backs up and we have to plunge it. Also it is noisy and it makes a terrible noise if I put a half a lime in it. It comes with a little rubber flange for the sink, that gets sucked into the machine if I have too much water go down the sink.

                            The product was ready to install right out of the box with little effort so long as it was originally plumbed in properly. I had to fix a bad plumbing job and it was that hard to correct that and install the new unit. On a scale from 1 to 10 I'd give this unit a 10 for ease of installation!
