Are any of you using a garbage disposal on a septic system? We are planning on putting one in, but someone told my wife that you should not do it if using a septic system. What's the truth?

I have heard that too, but we always had one in our house and never had a problem with the septic.  I plan on putting one in our new house as well.

Most septic designers don't recommend it. It doubles the amount of solids that usually go into the tank. If you chose to use one, pick a high end disposal that grinds into fine particles. You should also plan on having the septic pumped out yearly.

I installed a disposal that had a container of enzyme attached to it, sorry, I can not remember the make.  The buyer wanted a disposal installed, even though I tried to discourage it.  Each time that the disposal ran it also released some of the enzyme.  I still would recommend having the septic pumped yearly just to be safe.
