InSinkErator® SinkTop Switch: Air Switch for Garbage Disposal

The kitchen’s garbage disposal has become an essential part of after-meal cleanup. Without it, the tedious task of kitchen cleanup becomes even more difficult. However, if a homeowner must take extra steps to access their disposal’s on and off switch, it loses its convenience. This is the case in many kitchen designs with the disposal switch located in an out-of-reach wall mount, or worse, located within a cabinet and hard to access. Awkward switch placement is a common issue in kitchens with sinks set in islands.

Good news, there is an innovative solution available…Emerson, the manufacturer of top brand InSinkErator garbage disposals, has developed an elegant solution to frustrating switch access issues.

It is called the InSinkErator SinkTop Air Switch!

What are the Benefits of an InSinkErator® SinkTop Air Switch?

Installing an InSinkErator SinkTop Switch not only vastly improves the convenience of kitchen cleanup, but it also improves overall safety and sanitation in the kitchen.

In order to operate, a garbage disposal needs to be installed and powered by the home’s electrical system. As we all know electricity and water together can be hazardous. Generally, when someone is using a garbage disposal, it is not unusual for them to be either in the middle of food prep or cleanup. During this task, it is common for a person to reach for the garbage disposal switch with wet hands. Many kitchens are designed with their wall-mounted controls set extremely close to their electrical sockets. If a person isn’t careful, they could be in for a potentially nasty shock.

For kitchens designed with awkward switch placement (in a cabinet or placed several feet away) kitchen cleanup workflow can be significantly reduced. This can make the task of eliminating unwanted food both inconvenient and far more labor-intensive than it needs to be.

The InSinkErator SinkTop Air Switch elegantly eliminates these hazards and inconveniences with its simple, yet revolutionary design.

The expert plumbing technicians at Andy’s Pipe Dream can install the straightforward push-button SinkTop Air Switch on the counter directly next to your kitchen sink. The buttons themselves are installed flush with the counter and are sealed to prevent water and food from getting into the air switch itself. The InSinkErator SinkTop Air Switch does not have any electronic components. Homeowners do not have to worry about water damaging the switch or worry about getting shocked by using them with wet hands. When the button is pressed The InSinkErator SinkTop Air Switch sends a burst of air through a tube to the garbage disposal electrical on/off switch.  The pressure from the burst of air is enough to flip the switch. Pretty genius!

Most homes in the Kansas City area have a sump pump system designed to protect your basement from the expensive damage that can come from flooding.

Going one step further, many times we recommend installing a backup sump pump to support your main pump and discharge system. Most backup sump pump systems today consist of a pump, battery and computer control unit that provides an interface for monitoring system status and alerts you to potential problems.

Andy’s Pipe Dream has relied on PHCC PRO Series backup sump pump systems since we started our business in 2003. And when paired with their ultra-reliable maintenance free B12-100 battery, we find them to be the most dependable on the market today.

By eliminating battery maintenance, we eliminate the source of our problems. If you are interested in having one of our expert technicians evaluate your current sump pump or if you would like more information about adding a backup sump pump to your existing system, feel free to contact us any time.
