I need some help - dishwasher overflow thing on countertop
I don't know what these are called - you know those little things that some people have on their sinks/countertop that are supposed to be for dishwasher overflow? I remember seeing a thread on here once about how in some states (like CA, where I am), they are required by code, but after inspection can be taken out and use the hole for something else.
Can someone explain to me how they function, and why I don't need one? So many houses I go to don't have them. But then my MIL made a comment that you HAD to have one.
What do they do? Is it really okay to take it out after the inspection? Is there something else you need to do with the plumbing to compensate for taking it out?
