Performance Requirements for Plumbing Aspects of Residential Food Waste Disposer Units (ANSI Approved 2019)
ASSE 1008 applies to the plumbing aspects of residential food waste disposers, which are primarily installed in residential kitchen sink outlets. These devices are designed to reduce food waste particle sizes for discharging into sanitary drainage systems. This standard provides a basis for evaluating the adequacy of appliance design and performance to ensure sanitary conditions and to protect the public from health hazards that could result from improper design or manufacture.
