    Default proper supply piping/ air gap at dishwasher

    is this burst resistant hose ok to use in this application? this heater is under a kitchen counter.

    yes it needs a tpr pipe

    Anyone know any reason why this should not have an sir gap or high loop? the drain line comes from the bottom of the dishwasher and directly to the disposal

    Jerome,

    1. I'd say no on the flex line.(See AO Smith attachment)

    2.NO! on the dishwasher unless you like disposal water circulating in your dishwasher.

    I agree with Billy ... with some hesitation on the dishwasher high loop - because the dishwasher could - COULD - *COULD* - but might not , have a built in high loop.

    I always wrote them up and let a plumber verify that it either had one or they install one.

    Also, no clamp at the disposer connection and that dishwasher drain hose could come off, making a real mess real fast.

    Also sure that you caught the missing plate at the receptacle back there.

    I know you said the T&P needs a relief line, but consider 'how' it is going to be added ...

    Also, at a minimum, the hot water side supply line of the water heater should be insulated.

    It can't be visually identified by the photo, but since that sucker is inside the home, it needs a drain pan-- was one present?
