Installing Dishwasher Waste Pipe?

Postby Leerobbo » Sun Nov 20, 2016 8:47 pm

I'm fitting a dishwasher at home myself, I have the cold water feed, that's not a problem, however the only spare outlet blank that I can fit the waste pipe adapter too sits right at the bottom of my sink trap.. just before it goes out of the wall to the outside drain.. can I fit the pipe here as the waste pipe sits at least 30cm above this outlet. I'm concerned that waste sink water will flow into the dishwasher as the waste pipe connection is so low on the trap.. is this the case or as long as the waste pipe sits higher than the trap will it be ok??
Any help is appreciated!
