Can a dishwasher air gap go under the sink?
Posted by Z Goldman on July 14, 2003 at 13:03:12:
When I remodled my kitchen two years ago I move the sink over about two feet. At the time, I believe the plumber created an air gap for my dishwasher through a pipe under the sink. With my above sink air gap now defunct I wanted to use it for a water spray mechanism, but my contractor is concerned that it would be violating building codes that require an air gap.

Can an air gap be created under the sink and can anyone tell me what to look for to identify it? Otherwise, I'll have to uninstall the faucet before I sell and have everything reconnected.
