In response to Re: Air Gap question
ONe reason could be that it may not be able to handle the volume of water during the backwash phase.

: I am taking on the challenge of installing a water softener.

: Next to the location I am installing the softener I have a utility sink. Instead of just fastening the soften's drain hose to the side of the sink, I was wondering if I could use a standard dishwasher air gap (i.e. the one that sticks out of your kitchen sink)?

: Can anybody think of a reason why this would not work or why it shouldn't be done?

: I appreciate any feedback.
