Question about Dishwashers
If you are installing a dishwasher as a permanent appliance into cabinetry, drill a hole up near the top of the cabinet ( near the back) and route the drain house thru this hole over to your drain connection.. An air gap is formed by bring this hose up high and looping it down to the drain tie in.. This wil keep some water in the dishwasher below and act as a gas trap so no gases get into or out of the dishwasher.. If you are using a protable dishwasher.. by merely placing the drain hose ( that normally exits near the back/bottom of the dishwasher ) into a sink.. you have formed an air gap in the same manner.. as long as the drain hose is raised up and over a high point in the cabinet and doesn't allow back siphoning of water into the dishwasher.. you are all set.. Hope that helps..
