I thought I would have a difficult time installing the garbage disposal because a few months back I helped a friend install one in his kitchen. We had a time trying to make it all fit properly. I was not looking forward to installing mine. I decided to go ahead and do the job and figured if I needed help, I would have it in a few hours. I removed the old unit and after reading the very clear instructions, I felt confident about doing the job myself, which is what I did. It was simple and quick. Following the instructions made the job pretty quick and clean. The unit operates very quietly and efficiently. Glad I did it!!!!!

I purchased this to replace a Badger 5 3/4 hp disposal that just stopped working. The instructions were very clear on the order of the steps that need to be taken to install. Remember you will need to purchase separately the Wire connector and some plumbers puddy. Easy install, a little heavier than the old one, but it's manageable to install. Very Quiet! Love the removable rubber drain seal in the new models..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hotdoxy Very Quiet!!
I got this unit to replace a Badger 5 that developed a leak after 8 years of service.
This is so quiet that the house must be nearly silent in order to hear it when feeding it in the sink.
While I am not a novice for DIY, I am not a professional and this unit was a breeze to install, the most difficult part had to do with the snap ring. I used a screw driver, and pliers to make it snap into place. I also used a car jack to lift it so that I did not have to hold it up and fasten it into place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnJuan Quiet, capable disposal
The disposal is extremely quiet. We often can't hear it above the sound of the water running in the sink. The trap is designed nicely - no more mangled spoons! The only criticism I'd have is that, while the instructions that come with the product encourage putting all food waste down the disposal rather than throwing it in the trash, there is still some food waste that the product doesn't deal with well, animal skin and fat in particular. The product was competitively priced. The installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. I'd highly recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade their basic 1/2 HP disposal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by acrosb Easy to install
I am a 66 year-old woman, and this disposal was very easy for me to install. The only tricky part was identifying the correct black and white wires in my old power cord which got reconnected to the new disposal. The noise reducing flexible connector that attaches the PVC pipe to the disposal was pretty handy although you need some channel lock pliers or something to open the spring wide enough to slide on. Also, the disposal was too heavy for me to be able to hold with one arm while trying to rotate it onto the tabs. However, I simply used my car jack which not only held it but kept it perfectly level as well so that I didn't miss one of the 3 tabs. I used the existing parts that attached to the sink as they were the same as the new ones and did not need replacement. That really sped up the install process which was less than 30 minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry This product is quiet as advertised! Great value for the money!
Replaced the original Badger with the Select Plus which greatly exceeded my expectations. Very quiet and able to easily gobble up the usual stuff that goes into the disposer. Due to tight space constraints in a townhome cabinet, I had to reroute the drain lines but installing the Select Plus unit itself was easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ANi4ANeye Quiet, easy install, 6yr in home warranty
I bought this To replace a cracked and leaking Badger 5/8hp. I'll post an update after a few months to talk about performance but as far as installing goes this is what my review will mainly consist of. I'm no handy man but I watched a YouTube video on how to install an Insinkerator and it was really easy. The hardest thing for me was to snap the ring on the mount because it was pushing the flange up despite having a weight on it and the plumber's putty on. But I got it on in about 20 minutes and after that it was very simple. I had to saw one of the pipes because it was a little long. Total install time took me about an hour and a half. I'm a novice and found it fairly simple. I called some plumbers around town and they were charging between $150-200 for an install so I'm glad I was able to do it myself and save $$$ and also learn a valuable DIY lesson as well. So far it's really quiet. I haven't really had a chance to put much food down it yet but again, I'll update my review after a few solid months of good use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WritersGlow Great Product but take note!
I have had this disposal for about a month and
it is doing a good job with no problems.
However, I want others to take note that:
it is VERY quiet (which is a plus) so be careful
not to accidentally leave it running!
Also, it has a new ring for the sink but it does not
look like a quality stainless steel one. While the
plumber was there I had to make a quick decision
and decided to use my old one because the new one
looked very cheap. I wish I had known ahead of time
that they would not include a nice stainless steel one
like 'the 'ole days,' and I would have purchased one to
be ready when the plumber arrived!!
