Septic systems and garbage disposals
Posted by jack bauer on March 22, 19101 at 10:00:42:
I have a new house that has well and septic. I have heard arguments that say that you should not have a garbage disposal if you have septic and other that say a garbage disposal is OK as long as you have you tank pumped more frequently, due to the extra solids from the disposal. Any thoughts on this subject?

Secondly, they sell garbage disposals that they say are designed specifically for septic systems. What is the differance between a regular garbage disposal and the one for septic? Does it really matter which one I use?

Thanks,

Jack
