Air gaps and California code?
I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who's had success with installing a dishwasher without an air gap in California with permits. We're looking to permit our kitchen, and the air gap is the big hangup...we're looking primarily at dishwashers that don't need them, but in California they're required by code nonetheless.
I've heard of some cities waiving this code requirement with adequate documentation of a built-in or alternative air gap (especially with Miele dishwashers) and am wondering if anyone has had any direct recent experiences doing this (or has tried and failed!), and if so, with which cities. (We're in Oakland.) If you succeeded, what kind of documentation did you need?
