We want to install a garbage disposer but we have a septic tank. Are there any problems with this, and if so, ways to correct or prevent them?

You are going to add more refuse to the tanks and some of the products will not break down easily. It may shorten the timespan between cleanings a month or so. Other than that- no major problems.

Hiya!

You can add a disposer. Check out Insinkerators website at www.insinkerator.com. They make a disposer that injects a enzyme evrytime you use it to aid in the break down process.

I would also suggest that you check with your township or municipality on whether you are allowed to have one.

A couple of houses back I installed one for the wife, and was subsequently slapped with a fine. I was completely and utterly shocked.

Just an FYI

Been in the septic business a long time. We're now distributing "plastic" septic tanks to all states. These are pre-approved by the various states depending on size and/or number of compartments.
Of course, we also offer the deepest discounts and quick shipments for our friends at bobvila.com.
