Route the DW drain line to the kitchen sink trap.

Re: Help with the right fitting..


not sure that was ever a code acceptable drain connection...

if you are moving DW, would be correct time to make compliant.

if so, where is new DW location in relation to kitchen sink location?

Peace

Re: Help with the right fitting..


Your DW can pump 3 + feet easily. Here is my under sink DW drain hose connection. And my goofy sketch of how the DW hose is ran under my sink.

Re: Help with the right fitting..


as long as DW hose loops up to as high to underside of counter top
as shown by Greg's picture, I don't think it matters whether drain runs
under floor or through cabinets (given it is not right beside sink)

Peace

if DW is next to sink then how is it 3' away?
SO - why do you want to move the hose 5'?
did you move your DW or not?
did or does DW hose go through floor now?

Peace

In the original post I was going to move it 5 feet from where it was because it tied in to drain above electrical panel.. the center of the dish washer is almost exactly 3 feet from where it ties in to the sink drain.

Re: Help with the right fitting..


I would also be concerned with the two different plastic being used. They are not designed to be glued together.

No, not down through the floor. ....residential DW's should be drained as I posted pics of above to remain code worthy. Either use what is called a "high loop" in the DW drain discharge hose in the kitchen cabinet or as I did, install an air trap. Either method used, the DW hose will terminate on the angled DW tap on the side of the vertical tailpiece, shown on the sinks bowl vertical drain pipe. See pic of a chrome one or my PVC one, above.

See the sketch for when a sink discharge hose will not work out.

Dang RG, you did all that re-piping of your sinks drain and relocation of the DW discharge drain hose in just 2 hours ? Man, you need to be in the plumbing business !
