Choosing the Drain Method
It depends on which type of drain method you want to opt out based on the drain tee and local codes of plumbing. If the drain tee of the dishwasher is less than 18 inches, must give an air gap. If the tee is above than 18 inches and the air gap is not necessary, apply the loop method to set the connection. In case of connecting a garbage disposal with the drain hose, removing of the knock out plug is necessary.
Before setting a wire connection, make it sure that the circuit is supplying 120v and 60 Hz and has a time delay fuse. The wire should be accurately according to the capacity required for the device and have durability to bear 75 degree Celsius. Again the hole for the wire fitting is required of 1 ½ as mentioned before for the water supply. If you got confuse at any step immediately call Plumber Miami.
