    Default Not sure if this will work.

    Nothing seems to surprise me anymore.

    Does a wash machine discharge more than 5 gals?

    If the pail overflows, they can always empty it into the sink.

    I agree! That is the air-gap required by the AHJ

    Just to clarify, that is not an air gap.
    A washing machine does not require an air gap, only an air break.
    What is shown is an air break.
    I only mention this because some HI's may not understand the difference in an air gap/ air break or which one is required for a washing machine.

    I wasn't poking at you.
    I realize you were making a lighthearted comment not intended to be technically accurate.

    I really was thinking it may confuse some HI's (not you) about air gaps/ air breaks.

    That was in my best Ed McMahon voice... and it was good that you pointed it out. No problem here.

    Looking again, there might be an air-gap and an air-break

    At least they had the foresight to install burst proof feed lines.
