Hi Terry -
I know it is messy, but It is really the only way I can get a dishwasher into my kitchen without doing a complete remodel.
I have already tried to run the drain line through the floor and back up a different wall to the disposal. The total length of the drain line is about 10 feet and when I run the dishwasher I get about 3/4in. of standing water remaining after the cycle is done. I did not install an air gap, but rather put a 30 in loop in the drain line as suggested by the installation instructions.
I don't know what to do...I called a professional installer who told me that the setup I described should work. He suggested either installing an airgap or plumbing directly into the main drainage for the house...
If possible, I would rather not install a countertop airgap as I have vintage tile countertops that I would rather not mess with...plus I would be really disappointed if I did this and it did not solve the problem.
Do you know how I can solve my problem?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
