Garbage Disposal Switches

Don’t risk an electric shock when you operate your in-sink electric garbage disposer! Homeowners and plumbing contractors can mount the air button near the sink or on the wall. When you push the button, you force air through a long tube. The air trips the switch on the disposal at the end of the tube. Your air switch is completely isolated from the electric disposal, removing any risk of shock to the user.


Wide variety of options available to meet original equipment manufacturers product requirements.


Highly stable with good repeat accuracy. All switches are 100% tested at high and low settings and at proof pressure.


Remote operation with complete electrical isolation. UL Recognized. Costs less than conventional controls
