Portable Dishwasher


Looking for feedback on plumbing a portable dishwasher direct. Is this something that can be done fairley easily or should it be done by a professional plumber.

Plug it in, hang hose in sink, I think you can handle it.

Portable Dishwasher


I take what you are talking about is removing the faucet hookup and installing it permanently under the counter. My Grandfather did this to one years ago. You will need to go underneath and remove the water inlet hose at the inlet valve and install a braded inlet hose and connect it to the water tap for your dishwasher. The drain hose is going to be easier...remove the end of the hose from the faucet hookup, and use an automotive style hose clamp to affix it to the drain pipe
