In response to Re: Dishwasher vent
As long as the hose is fastened to the bottom of the countertop, or close to, before connecting to the disposer, you do not "need" the air gap. I have not installed an air gap on a dishwasher drain since I moved to this area 30 years ago.

: I just bought a 13 yr old house and it has a dishwasher vent. First one I've ever seen. I've owned 8 or 9 houses, both older and newer than this house, with dishwashers (and disposers) and never saw one of these vents before. Do I have to have it? Can't the dishwasher just drain directly into the disposer? I would like to install a new faucet with a hose sprayer in the hole now occupied by the vent. Can I do that?
