dishwasher disposal
« on: March 18, 2017, 09:44:04 PM »

Is it NECESSARY to connect the latest and greatest dishwashers containing disposal/chop and grind abilities to a garbage disposal?  I don't have and don't want a disposal but I'd like a dishwasher and most come with that feature now.  Thanks for any helpful info.   :thanks:

No you don't have to hook it up to a disposal. You can buy a Dishwasher tailpiece to connect the drain line into your sinks plumbing.

Just so you know although they do have a Chopper or what ever they want to call it , it is not even close to a garbage disposal and will not handle large amounts of food particles or any type of hard pieces, bones , etc.  No matter  how many times a salesman tells you you do not have to even scrape the dishes he is still lying.


Dishwasher. Drain through disposal or not. Which is best?
