In response to Re: distance requirement
: At this time I do not own a dishwasher. My hold up is I only have one place that I can install one. But I am not sure the distance would be within the guidelines. Is there a maximum distance from the sink to the dishwasher?

This would be determined by the manufacturer of the dishwasher. Usually they have a certain length drain hose attached to the unit. This could possibly be attached to a SCH40 PVC drain pipe and then to a flexible rubber hose to the disposal and air gap, but make as few turns as possible, use 45 ells instead of 90's, and size the pipe the same interior dimension as the drain pipe or the next trade size larger. Ask the manufacturer in any case to see if they have a soloution for you. Many of them have pretty wide installation lattitudes.
