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.

It would actually be okay. They make a unit specifically for a septic system, but this unit has 3 grinding stages and cuts the food up in small enough pieces that it would work well with one.

But there are additional advantages when you choose the Septic Assist Disposer, so I would recommend that product for those with a septic system.

Yes, the sink baffle rubber seal is removable and can be put in a dishwasher. In fact, that is one reason we purchased this model. If the rubber seal is not removable, it is very hard to keep clean.

Hi,
This is Belle from InSinkErator Customer Service. Our disposers come with all the necessary parts to install. As some states require their appliances to be hardwired, some of our disposers do not come with a power cord. Please always check the box as it states on the outside of the box if the unit has a pre installed power cord.

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.

I would check the power source at the unit itself. There may be a loose connection at that point which wouldn't show up at the breaker or the switch. Hope this helps.

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

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1476 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressive disposal!! I recently moved in and there was an existing, older 1/3HP Badger unit installed. It was jammed so I decided to not deal with it and just replace it with a new disposal. The Evolution is more than I wanted to spend, but the reviews were outstanding and the promise of a more quiet disposal was enticing. This unit is definitely solid quality from all aspects and appearances, and lives up to the claims... I installed it myself and, though it isn't difficult, it does take longer than some estimates if you are not used to a few details. There are numerous videos out there that are helpful and I recommend reviewing a couple to get the idea before starting if you have no experience. One thing that none of them show, and I found the hardest part - getting that split ring on! The videos always stop before showing that step, and it is my belief they were edited as such to delete the colorful language that ensued. All disposals seem to use the same attachment method though, so you have to put up with it regardless. Once you get it on you'll be like, "That wasn't so bad" - but it takes a few tries and patience. The only other thing to watch for in a replacement situation is that this unit has a larger diameter at the top than many, so watch for potential interference up high. Performance - unbelievable! "Quiet" is a difficult term to quantify. Honestly, this unit makes about the same noise when operating as the replaced, jammed unit did just turning on (if you're familiar with that noise level). It is that quiet and vibration free, at least on the simple things thrown at (in) it thus far. It is difficult to spend 2 to 3 times the cost of another unit you could put in to "do the job." BUT, I have to say, whenever you flip that switch - yeah, it was worth it! May 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Only lasted about a year It just got jammed up, and we could not unjam it. I called a plumber who said that he could not unjam the unit. He said that maybe the motor broke, but it would be less expensive to buy a new one then to rebuild the old one. So that's $528 down the drain. (Unit cost plus installation cost to put in a new unit.) So we had to buy a new one. It only lasted about 18 months. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very quiet! This is just a solid garbage disposal and so quiet! I really like it a lo. Also a good stainless steel makes me feel assured that it will last and not get gunky inside and will clean well. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Evolution Excel Garbage Disposal This unit is great. It was an easy install using the electric outlet under the sink to a switch. The unit is very quick when being used. This unit should last many years because of it well made design. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great purchase This is the best disposal we ever had. Very quiet. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by InsinkErator Evolution Excel Bought the best rated disposer on the market to replace a 27 year old Insinkerator. Super quiet works great. Wouldn't have anything else. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent! The Evolution Excel Disposal is well worth spending a little more. It is so powerful and whisper quiet. It is designed to last and look great with its stainless steel body. It can handle most any kind of food scraps. I'm very happy with our choice. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very quiet disposal I liked the ability to hear the sound levels of the different model disposals in the store, as sound was an important consideration for me. This model is extremely quiet, does a good job, and was easy to install. I would recommend it. May 24, 2016
