Can someone tell me what the proper connection is for the dishwasher drain if it is not near a sink. I am re-designing my kitchen and the dishwasher will be across from the sink, about 6 feet away.
I was planing on adding in an additional drain line with 1.5" pvc with a P trap on it. The sink has a vent on it, but this drain would not have a vent, I could put one of the self-vent things on this drain if necessary.
I was led to belive that there is something else that needs to be done with a dishwaster that is free standing (seperate from a disposal), but am not able to find what it is.
I read about a stop gap type of valve that some people mention using, but I don't know if that is necessary or if there are other things necessary that I don't know about.
I would use the Air Admittance Valve. When you make up your new drain, install a tee with the side outlet for the DW and also a piece of pipe going up as high as possible with the AAV. Remember, you still want to install the DW drain hose with a high loop in it to prevent the water from being sucked out during the wash cycle. Air Gaps were required a while back but many areas found that they caused more problems than they solved. Food in the discharge caused clogging. Some area still require them though.
If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
