    Default Leak from bottom of garbage disposal

    Had a leak under my sink.. took a look and water is coming out of the red reset button when the sink is on.... What causes this? Has the bottom rusted out ?


    Off to Home Depot this afternoon for a replacement.

    Get a good one.

    Insinkerator Evolution -

    lasts longer and can grind up just about anything you can throw at it.

    Do the big box stores sell the Evolution? I thought it was strictly for contractors.

    Yes, HD carries it (don't think Lowes does). I replaced my mother's at Christmas with one.
