Sepura or Garbage Disposal?

Here’s a simple overview to compare the two.

Garbage Disposal
Where food goes: Food scraps are filtered and sent into under-sink compost bin. Blades grind food scraps up and sends them down your pipes.
Septic friendliness: 100% septic friendly, only liquid enters your pipes. Not septic-friendly, food goes down pipes into septic tank.
Handling food: Works with any food scraps. Veggie peels, rice, and many other foods damage garbage disposals.
Clogging pipes: Only liquids go down pipes to keep them clog-free. Food gets caught in pipes and clogs over time.
Water use: Water is optional. Water drains before sending scraps to the compost bin. Running water is necessary to lubricate blades and wash food down pipes.
Safety: Uses an auger instead of blades, auto detects non-food items. Uses blades, can cause severe injury if hands are near when activated.

What foods does it work with?

Sepura works with most food scraps.

Light creams will mix with water to flow down your drain.

Oil, grease, and coffee grounds can be put directly into the under-sink compost bin.

Foods like mashed potatoes are thick enough to be filtered into the under-sink compost bin.


When will Sepura be available?

Our second batch of pre-orders will be shipping on or before July 2023.

How often do I need to empty it?

Depending on use, Sepura will need to emptied every two to four weeks on average.

Can I use bags in the compost bin?

Yes. The compost bin is designed to accept standard biodegradable and compostable liners that are readily available.

Sepura will have custom bags available as well. Alternatively, you can go linerless as Sepura's bin is stick-free.

Can I attach my dishwasher overflow to Sepura?

Sepura comes with an optional dishwasher drain adapter that allows you to connect your dishwasher to.

Do you grind up the food scraps?

No, unlike a garbage disposal, Sepura simply separates solids from liquids as opposed to grinding it up.

This is why Sepura is allowed everywhere - because no food makes it down the drain into your pipes.

Is there any maintenance required?

Sepura cleans itself and therefore is very low maintenance.

We recommend changing your filter every three or so months. We will be releasing these filters soon.

Make sure to connect your device to WiFi so that Sepura can update itself and maximize its lifespan!

How does Sepura handle excess water?

Sepura has many sensors on board to monitor things like water volume.

If you were to drain a full sink into Sepura, your device will not turn on until it has determined enough water has passed through.

How much space should I leave under my sink for Sepura?

Sepura has a universal sink mount, and the bin height easily adjusts between 17” and 22”.
