If customers would run hot water after using to flush food waste into the main, that would eliminate a lot of the problems.

Customers can be hard-headed, so disposals are quite lucrative.
Volume is a bigger key than temp.

Definitely not a plumber here.

Speaking of disposals... our supply house has just started selling Moen disposals. 3 or 4 year warranty, basket is the same as insinkorator and cost less. Anyone install them yet? Are they any good? I'd put one in my sink to try them out, but my line is undersized for the distance and is loaded with bellies.... Both drainage and potable are jacked up in my house.

Best disposal i've ever installed was the Evolution series made by insinkorator. The 1 hp models can grind up 2x4's

Problem is the cost. People sometimes freak at the price of $300 for a badger 5 with whatever tubular including needed to make it right.

I thought smashing food through the basket strainer WAS a garbage disposal. As long as you move your fingers in a circular motion, right?
