It is 3/4HP I see you live in Texas,where do you want it! No really it depends on Lift & Length,like Eppy said. 75-100ft on a MILD lift is doable! Youroo!!

With my disposal I have it hooked up to a 100 hose. It is downhill about 6 feet so I have no issues with the hose length. Amazingly enough, I only have to run the disposal for about 20 seconds at the beginning and then a few seconds every couple minutes. The siphon effect takes care of the rest. This is even with the black tank. Doesn't seem to make sense but it works great.

Our local pumpers will come by the lake lot and dump our black tank. I have been quoted about $ 35 per trip if they can do it on their regular scheduled trips
