Routing of dishwasher/disposal plumbing
Posted by Glenn Heilemann on December 30, 2001 at 10:41:03:
I have a dishwasher that has always had water run from the airgap. After looking at the original installation, I have become suspect that it is incorrect.

The discharge hose from the dishwasher runs directly to the airgap, then to the disposal.

It seems to me that the airgap should act as a "vent" rather than a direct route to the disposal.

Could you give me some kind of idea as to the routing of the plumbing from the dishwasher to the disposal, and where the airgap comes into play.

Thank you all so much for knowledge far superior to mine.
