In response to Re: Can a dishwasher air gap go under the sink?
A true air gap would be a very poor idea under the sink, since there would not be any safe place for it to overflow, which it will do sometime.

: 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.
