: Hi 1st Timer with a garbage disposal. I have 1/3 hp in-sinkerator (Home Depot) that I want to install. I currently do not have a disposal installed and my washing machine is piped into the the trap. all of the piping is pvc. What do I do about hooking up the electrical component of the disposal? Do I have to install a switch? Do I have to run wire to a receptacle? What do I do?

I would recommend buying a how to plumbing manual maybe 10 bucks but essentially plot a location of the switch, buy a box 1 for switch and 1 for outlet, a switch some and some wire. Tap power at a preferable close location, this tap should be inside a box, run the power to the switch, then to the outlet for the plub in off the disposer, wire the outlet for control by the switch. That's about it but buy the book first, or in the alternative have it explained at the hardware store...good luck
