Hi Adrian, the Sink Top switch is rated at 12 amps and 120V.
Power comes into the switch through the three prong male plug. When this plug is inserted into a 120 v outlet and the disposal is plugged into the switch assembly the disposal will receive power the air button is depressed.
Sorry, our Sink Top Switch kits only include either a satin nickel or chrome and white button. For other finishes, it must be purchased separately.
Hi Colleen, the plastic nut under the sink counter has to be tightened to ensure a water-tight seal.
The switch operated by the push button toggles or switches the power between the two outlets on the switch body (unit mounted under sink). This means you power power at one of the outlets at a time. There fore I would not recommend this as a power source for a dishwasher. It would work great as a power source for a disposal and water heater. The short amount of time the disposal would interrupt power to the water heater would not interfere with it's performance.
Not advisable. Every time you run the disposal you will cut power to the dishwasher.
Easy install. Works perfect!!
You depress it once it’s on push again to shut off. They work great.
Just install under sink near plug, drill hole too fit air switch, install air switch and just plug into outlet
Mine too, but between the size of the button and the fact that it is surrounded by a bezel, it would take a heavy cat with a lot of dexterity to actuate the button. It has always made me a bit nervous to flip the standard wall switch that controls the disposal in many homes because...wet hands...mixed with electricity. But no fear at all pushing this stainless steel button (yeah..."satin nickle") with dripping wet hands because the only connection between the button and the power is a long plastic airhose. It's not HARD to push, but you do have to give it a deliberate push and move it a good half an inch, not something that my kitty could do.
