Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm I have had three insinkerators in our multi decade home. would I buy another? In a heartbeat. My adult children and grandchildren have put this machine through its paces. I will need another in 10 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced One with One I replaced a InSinkErator Badger 5 with the same. My home came with the InSinkErator Badger 5 & lasted 13 + years. I was pleased with the overall performance, and as such decided to replace it with the same. In doing so, the plumbing was a perfect match, making the replacement a simple DYI project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really powerful! We purchased our new insinkerator as part of our kitchen remodel. We are so pleased with the size and power and it’s ability to quickly grind up just about anything. This particular model was recommended by a professional plumber. I’m glad we listened. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent disposal and easy to install even for a novice. I simply replaced my original which lasted nine years, with the exact same model and I have no plumbing experience. I think the whole job took around 45 minutes. Defiantly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does good job, but short life Original Badger 5 was installed in May 2012 and froze up in March of 2018,after which water ran out the bottom. I assumed broken seal. Replaced it with new /badger 5 due to ease of installation. I was disappointed in the life time; I quess I expected longer

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...
