Thanks Marc for your effort to put these together. :slight_smile:


The deficiency is that the picture won’t open

I can’t see the pic.


I apologize for the non-pic on our wonderful forum software.
Here’s an attachment.

The two Dave’s can start over again in case they want to review their answers… :wink:


I’ll stick with the original answers and now can see the pic. :lol:

Flex used for drain pipe and most likely no high loop.

Accordion drain pipe


Flex line should not be used. Appears to be no High Loop in DW drain. The air admittance valve should be at least 6" above the P-trap weir (looks to be maybe 4 1/2")

Any winner yet?

Congratulations to Steve Nadeau for winning the QOTW. :slight_smile:

Congratulations, Steve. I missed the air admittance valve height. It was so close…#-o

Wow! Thanks for the questions Marc. I would’ve used my tape measure to confirm, but I leant it to the client to keep him out of my hair.
