Dishwasher air gaps, drains, and raised dishwashers
Posted by carl on September 11, 19100 at 20:38:02:
We have a new Whirlpool DW that we are raising 6" above the kithchen subfloor and are wondering how this will affect the need for an air gap. We would like to NOT use one, but the DW instructions call for a min 20" distance from the floor where the DW is installed to the connection with the drain at the disposer. Can we get by with running the drain hose up to the 40" level under the DW counter top? This would put it about 22" ABOVE the sink/disposer drain pipe.
