What is an Airgap?

Question what is an Airgap? Answer: An Airgap or Air Gap is devise mounted on your kitchen sink top that you connect your dishwasher drain to. This airgap prevents the contaminated dishwasher water drainage from siphoning back into the water supply to your home and the neighbors homes.

Most jurisdictions require an Airgap in their plumbing codes. Please check with your local building department, before installing a new dishwasher.

Installing an Airgap protects your drinking water and the communities drinking water.

Many homeowners feel that they are unsightly. However, in the past few years, the manufacturers have offered finishes to match the custom finish of your kitchen faucet.
