switch for disposal

I would like to know if it is possible to use a pressure type switch same or similar to the switch ( or push button) that is used to activate a jacussi pump motor to turn a garbage disposal on and off.

not with the available tech that we have today, the disposals are dependant on a manual switch, but hey, you may be on to something, .......

Yes, assuming that you want to hold the button while the disposer runs.
It's called a momentary contact switch.

Actually there are air switches available, here is a Link to just one of the manufactures.

Most of the ones I have seen are not momentary. The switch for a jet tub is not momentary.

I have that exact switch setup for my disposal and it works great. Installed it in one of the holes on our porcelain sink, and been using it for about three years now with absolutely no problems. The wife loves it. You just need room under the sink to mount the control box.
