Dishwasher Drains: Know the Code

There are specific requirements for hooking up your dishwasher drain to the sink, and codes governing the right procedure can differ from place to place.

In some locales, for instance, it's not proper to drain dishwasher water directly into a garbage disposal. Another requirement is a high loop, or air gap, to prevent water flowing from the sink back into the dishwasher, potentially causing odors and contamination. Contact your local plumber if you have any questions about your dishwasher drain set-up.

If your home is like most, it's full of shut-off valves, which can develop leaks as they age.
