air gaps
« on: August 02, 2013, 03:00:28 PM »
Is there such a thing as a air gap made for high flow or a heavy duty air gap? If so, can I get the part #.
Thanks

Required here if the dishwasher drains into the disposal. However that is only applied if there is some kind of building inspection.Most of them are eventually bypassed at some point. For the last 15 years or so, builders have just added a standpipe under the sink for the dishwasher drain.
