Answer: 
Dan, I think you would be fine with this unit and having a septic system. The three grind stages literally destroy food waste to the point where waste volume is probably about 1/3 that of a single stage grind. Obviously you may want to be more aware of what you feed into the unit due to the limitations of septic systems, but overall, I would say go for it. Do it right the first time.

Answer: 
Dear Dan: If you are still evaluating the InSinkErator Excel -- yes, it is a good fit for homes (like ours) with a septic system. I replaced our Waste King and was very impressed with the quality of the Excel. It was so quiet that I could not hear it which I flipped the switch the first time, with the water running! I had to turn the water off to make sure it was working.

Answer: 
Though they make a model specifically for septic systems, this unit with it's three (3) grinding stages and seven (7) year warranty would be a good model. It would cut the food in small enough pieces for your septic system. You still need to follow precautions though.

Answer: 
If the disposal is on a GFI circuit check it. My GFI circuit popped off for some reason after the third day of installation and caused the breaker on the Evolution ( red button under unit ) to go off. I checked my breaker box reset the GFI reset the breaker on the disposal. Haven't had a problem since. If that doesn't fix the problem you possibly need an electrician.

Hi Joan,
This is Belle from InSinkErator Customer Service. I do apologize about your experience with our product.
If your disposer will not start at all, your unit may have overheated. Your Evolution Excel is equipped with an overload protector. One it overheats, it turns your disposer off and the reset button will pop out. Gently pressing the reset button should resolve the issue, but if after pressing the reset button and it drops back down (out), the motor may still be too hot for the reset button (overload protector) to engage. Let it cool down for 3 – 5 minutes and try again. The reset button should stay up (in) after the motor has cooled.
Please make sure that power is OFF to the disposer before you press the reset button.
If resetting the disposer is ineffective, check to be sure there is power to the disposer. If your unit has a cord and plug, make sure the wall switch (on/off device) is in the OFF position, unplug the disposer, and use another small appliance in the outlet to see if it is working (after plugging it in, don’t forget to flip the wall switch or other on/off device to the “on” position to test). If your disposer is hardwired, check the circuit breaker to be sure it is on.
If you determine that there is power to the disposer, and the reset is engaged or will not engage, there may be an internal problem and your unit requires service or replacement.
Please contact the AnswerLine at 1-800-558-5700 if you have further questions or if you would like to have your disposer serviced. Thank you. Read Less

Evolution Excel 1 HP Continuous Feed Garbage Disposal is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 1594.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SPEND THE $ FOR THE EVOLUTION Because I hate plumbing especially under the sink, when the 5 year old Badger started leaking I was not happy. After research online and the positive reviews on the Evolution model, I decided to upgrade. This thing is HEAVY! I had to use a car jack to position it under the sink. That said, the installation was easy and everything I needed, except plumbers putty, was included in the box. This thing is QUIET and no vibration! It is definitely worth the extra $ and based on all the stainless parts it should last much longer than the cheap Badger. Be sure to shop around because prices varied by a $100 for the same model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend for sure I had to replace my old Badger five when it finally began leaking water severely on labor day. Of course that wasn't what I wanted to deal with whilst I was entertaining, but you play the hand you are dealt. Anyhow, I had reviewed this product when it was first released and contemplated replacing my Badger at that point. However, I chose not to spend the money as it was still working. That being said, when the Badger finally did get past its useful service life I moved forward. The Excel is rather pricey, but certainly worth the money in my opinion. The disposal is quite large compared to the old one, but significantly more quiet. One would think that doubling the horsepower of the motor and going from one grind stage to three would be just the opposite. I am here to tell you that this BEAST is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Not only is it ridiculously quiet, it is powerful and sleek at the same time. Let's be honest, most of us don't have the cupboard doors open for decoration, but when you do, this will command some attention. Some of the other things I really like about the product are what it can process. This unit literally destroys just about anything you can throw at it. Bones, fruits, pits, corn husks, corn cobs, bananas, egg shells, celery, onion, and the list goes on. The key is good water flow during the grind process. These new water conserving faucets can cause water flow issues which will result in a clog if you feet the unit more quickly that the water can flush away ground material. In case you didn't know, ALWAYS use cold water to prevent liquefying any meat fats that could clog the unit or the plumbing. ALWAYS have the unit on before feeding material in to it. REGULARLY grind ice or other hard material to help scour food waste from the grind chamber that can cause foul odor to plague your kitchen. Be sure to remove the sink baffle regularly and clean under and around it to remove any meat or food scraps that me be thrown upon the underside of it during the grinding process. Lastly, periodically grind lemon or other citrus peels to help freshen the disposal. Now, let me address some of the things that the typically malcontent have to gripe about. Yes, the unit is expensive. Yes, the sink baffle that the unit uses to help mitigate the sound made from the motor and grind process does cause a slight pooling of water over the disposal opening. However, water being the dense fluid that it is makes a fantastic sound barrier. It will cause soap suds not to drain readily and you will have to use a little more effort to feed some bulky or larger items into the disposal. That being said, certainly not enough effort would be needed to place ones fingers in any harm. If you are that worried about it, use a wooden spoon handle or other object to press items through the sink baffle. If you cannot handle that, you should reevaluate your status as an adult. The extra resistance is nice to prevent unwanted items such as pressure cooker caps and other utensils from accidentally entering the grind chamber where they could cause or be seriously damaged. And finally, the product is made here in the USA which supports American jobs! I am happy to pay a little more money for something to make sure my neighbors are employed. In addition, the unit is fully warranted for seven years in home parts and labor. How can you beat that?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great disposal, with one minor flaw This disposal is so quiet, my wife thought it was broken. The only thing I don't like about it is the rubber part that goes in the drain to prevent stuff from being ejected back out at you. It restricts the water flow too much. As a result, the sink starts to fill, as if the drain were clogged. Sticking something in there will let air bubbles out and allow the water to flow down. But, that's not something you want to do every time you use the sink, and certainly not with a running disposal. Other than that, it's everything they claim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good products. This product is very quiet and works very well. We have had great service over a 40 year period from 3 Incinerators in our home. All the Incinerators have gotten a lot of work with three sons, their wives, eight grandchildren, many family dinners, special occasions and holidays. We also have family Christmas baking sessions three times a year for extended family. So loads of work. We also love they are made in the USA. Thanks for that!
