Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied My old disposal completely quit working, so we had a new one installed. This one is very quite and efficient. We only installed this a month or so ago, but at this point we are very satisfied with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from To early to tell I rated this three stars simply because it is too early to tell how this product will hold up. So far it is doing what it is supposed to. If it lasts half as long as the one I replaced , I will be happy. That was over twenty years by the way

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great garbage disposal but a bit noisey I used this make and model of a because it's the same one I was replacing and the installation therefore was a piece of cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, comfortable, convenient All of the above, plus a lot quieter than the one it replaced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works fine. The product lasted just over two years, a week or so out of the two-year warranty, and it developed cracks that necessitated replacing it, as it leaked. The serviceman said that often happens if you put bones into it, but as we're vegan, that wasn't a reason! Don't count on it lasting too long, but while you have it, it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install In my case, this replaced an old Badger 1, so the installation was really easy. I did not have to to the sink part as the collar is the same for both units. Just dropped the old one, took out the wires, installed them in the new unit, and put it in. The piping is the same for both units, so just unhooked and rehooked. I have done the collar before at another location, and it is not difficult. The Badger 5 is about an inch and a quarter longer than the Badger 1 I had before, so I had to reorganize the stuff in the bottom of the sink cabinet, but that was all. Runs reasonably quietly, so noise is not an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT DOES THE JOB What's to say about my new disposal. I have it a few weeks and it does the job. Is it a quality product? Ask me in 8 to 10 years. Was it easy to install? I don't know, I called "the guy" and HE installed it. Seemed like he did not have any problems. Is it innovative? I really don't know... all I know is that after a few weeks, it is still doing the job. Is my review helpful... I would think not.... but I can tell you after a few weeks, it is still working.

how do i fix a water leak at the power cord location

Asked by: canja
Seal the opening around the power cord with a waterproof sealant. It's like Play-Dough, and is available in any hardware store.

Badger 5 leaks from the side

My Badger 5 is approximately 5 years old, and has developed a leak in the side of the unit, where the two parts of the plastic housing meet, and the leak only happens when the unit is turned on. There is no leak whatsoever when running water alone. The only fasteners I see on the unit itself are funny little plastic pieces, which I presume a user cannot tighten. Is there a remedy for this problem? It is used sparingly, and I am surprised it has developed a leak after such limited use. Many thanks for your input. Andrew Jones Port Moody, BC Canada
Asked by: AndyBC
Mark where the disposal is leaking. Pull the disposal and you find a fine crack in the plastic housinf fix with JB weld

can the existing power cord be re-used when replacing the same model disposal

my existing model 5-81A is leaking from the power cord, I am going to order a new model 5, do I need to order a new cord kit with it, or can I use the old cord on the new unit. My existing is a plug in, not a hard wire.
Asked by: Greg50
Due to the hook up on the Badger 5 I found that I was unable to reuse the cord from my other disposer. If yours is leaking from the cord I would suggest safety be your guideline and change it, it doesn't cost a lot.

Whats the life of a Badger 5?

My disposal started pouring from the bottom today. Model number is 5-81A and its only about 7 years old. Also what is good replacement?
Asked by: Chelsea
most of the units I have seem have rotted out on top of the housing that supports the motor shaft....it could also be the seal around the motor shaft....again most of the ones have rotted out because of the minerals in the water that attack that metal...
