garbage disposals with farmhouse sinks
I am a first time home buyer, renovating a 1923 bungalow and want to install a farmhouse/apron sink. These can be very expensive but I found one for under 200 at IKEA. On an IKEA fan-forum I saw that people had had problems with the force from a disposal cracking the sink. Is this because this is a cheaply made sink? Is this a common problem with Fireclay and Vitreous China sinks? Is there a minimum or maximum horse power disposal I should use? I'd like to find a sink that can stand the force of a disposal for closer to 500 than 1000 dollars. Any advice welcome.
Re: garbage disposals with farmhouse sinks
Never heard of a disposer cracking the sink maybe it was the installer or maybe it vibrated really bad due to something caught in disposer maybe its bad material cheap sink :( but if you don't mind paying a little more for a disposal you could get a pro excel or pro essential from Insinkerator the Pro lines especially the Excel has a sound proof baffle and a vibration mount so it can move its 60% more quite than other disposers but because the way its designed it wouldn't put stress on the sink.
