    I have a new double sink with dishwasher. I was at Lowes and they sell a double sink in PVC but there is not a connection to connect to dishwasher. I currently have a single bowl and there is a little connector over to the dishwasher. Do they sell something specific for double sink and dishwasher?

    Please advise.

    When you do not have a garbage disposer, you use a "branch tailpiece" below the sink drain which the dishwater drain, or air gap fitting, connects to.

    I saw some kit type packages at HD and Lowes, they have the compression fittings with the collars that I can tighten up with the washers. Or should I get PVC and parts and glue it? I have only glued once so not a lot of experience.

    Thoughts?
