Question about Garden
There is water leaking out of the weep hole at the bottom of the pump (approximately 2 to 3 cups a minute. I took the pump apart and it appears that the 3 pumping pistons have a hole located on the cylinder. These holes all connect to one another through the milled out portions of the water pump. They all come together and drain out of the bottom of the pump. These holes are there for a reason, but I can not seem to figure it out. The only way water can get there (from what I can tell) is leaking by the pistons, between the piston and cylinder, and coming out of the hole, eventually to the weep hole at the bottom. I hope my description was good enough. But is water SUPPOSED to come out of the bottom weep hole? is it used for cooling purposes?

These holes are probably due to wear, as they are at about the level of the cutter. In general, residential disposals are not repairable and once they begin to leak, they must be replaced. The Badger series is Insinkerator's budget line and probably has about a 5 year lifespan with normal use.

This is more of a tip than a solution as I am having a partial-draining problem and have discovered by accident how to have the Quiet Series 300 "drain only" (which is not an option on the control board and the manual doesn't seem to address this).
TIP 1: The "drain-only" function can be activated by selecting "Rinse Only", pushing the "Start" button, and then pushing the "Start" button again (which cancels the start). This activates the drain pump which will drain any remaining water.
I think I might have a partial clog below which I have been able to access so far as I removed the top drain cover (3 --I think the term is star screws) and used a screw driver to take debris out from between the drain blades. This improved things but didn't solve the problem. As of now, I just completely drain the machine by cancelling the "Rinse only" as described in TIP 1 above.
TIP 2: If you don't have a star or hex screwdriver, you can pick up one very cheaply at a discount store (e.g., Odd Lots, Marcs, or even some Dollar Stores). Check out their tool section. I've bought a bunch of stuff, sure it is not the highest qualilty, but how often do you use most of your tools? I bought the star-screwdriver set for about $1-2 and will probably use it 10-20 times in my lifetime. I bought it to change a bulb in out minivan and have now used it again. In my cynical opinion, more and more companies are NOT using straight or phillips-head screws as a way to force many to use their repair services. I'm not a professional, just a guy who's using the internet to feel his way around in the dark.

It means your water pump seal is seeping at this point. Eminent failureportended. Replace water pump. Seals on pumps usually fail because of bearing wear, so this is a precursor to pump shaft failure. Good luck

There are two seals on the impeller pump. Replace the seals an the leak is stopped. Put in a new cover gasket as well.
