How do you hook up a badger garbage disposal?
Accordingly, are garbage disposals hardwired or plugged in?

Subsequently, question is, do you need an air gap with a garbage disposal? Air gaps of appropriate design are required for water safety by legislation in many countries. In the base cabinet under the sink, the drain hose from the dishwasher feeds the "top" of the air gap, and the "bottom" of the air gap is plumbed into the sink drain below the basket, or into a garbage disposal unit.
