So you've just bought a new garbage disposal and discovered it didn't come with a cord and plug, which is often the case. Then you ran down to the hardware store and found that a plug and play cord won't get the job done. You have to wire the thing, but you don't know how to wire a garbage disposal. Lucky for you, the experts here at PlumbersStock are sharing their expertise.
These instructions will have you covered if all you need to do is wire the disposal to a plug that connects to a wall outlet that then can be flipped on and off with a switch. If you need to hardwire into the homes electrical system, we strongly recommend that you hire a licensed electrician.
