Enjoy your Weekend All
that does look serious…
very serious violation in ohio
That’s a mad leek!
But you can’t report it unless you are an “authorized leek specialist”. And last I heard there was only one in the entire state.
Did you take a leek there?
The leek was there to distract you from noticing the poor installation of the dishwasher drain.
You noticed that, too, huh? I didn’t want to spoil the humor.
uugghh. good catch simon
Technically, there is a high loop… ? …
Dishwasher Drain Lines
The reason for the high loop is to prevent the potential backflow of water into the dishwasher and to prevent improper drainage of water. Even though dishwashers come from the factory with the drain looped up high against the side of the dishwasher, this is not an acceptable substitute for the high loop underneath the kitchen sink.
It is required by most jurisdictions and manufacturers that dishwasher drain lines be installed with a high loop. This prevents the dirty water that is being drained from being inadvertently pulled back into the dishwasher or even siphoned back into the water system.
Marc, what are you asking or saying
Maybe! but home inspectors can’t comment on serious hazards under the new SOP.
Drain line looks quite funky but there is a loop. … … I guess.
It’s improper, the top of the loop needs to go as high as possible under the sink to minimize backflow during backup of the drain. I rarely see this done right.
Yup, that’s right, Simon…
Gotta hand it to you. That’s a good one.
