Sepura or Garbage Disposal?
Here’s a simple overview to compare the two.
|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.|
