Dishwasher installation


Can I use Shark Bite connectors and Pex tubing for dishwasher installation? What size tubing should be used for output from dishwasher?

You might want to consider using a braided hose which will give you flexibility to jostle your dishwasher into position and connect to the water supply.



Also for the waste pipe, I prefer to use stainless steel worm gear clamps over quick assemble clamps (this comes with your dishwasher).






Good luck

The drain hose supplied is too short. I have to go about eight feet.

Could I use the Shark Bite connectors and Pex hosing?
