Your drain line looks long enough from here--
So the current hose connected to the air gap is fine you think?

Do you think I need the strain relief part that isn't included.

Your old hose should be fine---

I don't even know what a strain relief is---so I doubt if you need one.

I'm confused. Do you see that grey hose attached to my new dishwasher on the back? Is that in place of the white hose lating on the ground? If it is Ill give the old
one to the person buying it.

That white tube with the black angled piece looks like the drain line from the old unit---that should go with the old dishwasher---

The hose from the 'air gap' to the sink tail piece----the drain line on the new machine should be long enough to reach the 'air gap'----

Cable staples and nylon tie straps are all I know---Romex is not allowed in this area --so I don't know the names of the straps ---

I'm slow in the head today----the cable keeper---is the part I described above--

A-Romex(NM) to box connector.(take the one off the old machine if it's still good--)

Actually we got it. It was the strain relief.

This is why I stay out of the electrical section----I actually worked for an electrician for quite some time---but we are all conduit here---

I doubt if I've run 400 feet of Romex in my life---so I feel mighty useless in the electrical area because Romex is the world standard--and I have no experience with it--
