Dishwasher and air vent in walls
Posted by Kevin on April 30, 19100 at 23:17:11:
I am installing a dishwasher and it is on a different wall than the sink. The electric and hot water
lines will be coming up from the basement directly underneath the dishwasher. I would like to drop the
drain line down to the basement and into a line before a trap. The line would then slope to drain line from
kitchen sink. Where I connect the dishwasher drain into the line before the trap, can I extend the line up
into the walls and add an air vent? The air vent would be closed in by the walls. I would prefer to add the
air vent behind the dishwasher and not in the wall but I believe there is not enough room. I do not want to
place the vent through the countertop.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
