dishwasher help

steve0403February 1, 2014

I am trying to reroute my dishwasher hose. I am wanting to go through the floor under the floor and back up under the sink which is about five feet away. Then I plan to come up loop above the garbage disposal and hook up to garbage disposal. Two questions, one....is this good, two...how hard is it to knock out the discharge knockout of garbage disposal while it is already installed?

If you can run the hose through the back of your cabinets it would be more typical. I'm not sure if there is a code against running through the floor but if it is your only path then I don't see a problem as long as you make a high loop before attaching it to your disposal. I know for sure that you cannot run the hose through a wall by my local code. I have a dishwasher that is about 5 feet away from a sink as we'll. I purchased a 10ft dishwasher hose online. I recommend doing this instead of coupling 2 hoses. By the time you make your high loop and go through the floor, the 10ft hose should be perfect. I can't answer the question about the disposal knockout.

The knockout for the disposal is easy as long as you can easily get a screwdriver into it so that you can tap it out with a couple of good taps. It will land into the disposer and you'll usually have to retrieve the piece from the sink.
