    What I meant was that a legal AAV device. Not were they allowed for an area.

    Never seen one like that (Black Plastic) with all the correct stamps.

      Most dw's loop the drain hose right at the unit, therefore no need to under sink.

        I'll let the rest of you discuss the impropper drainage alignment as I continue to study the excessive amount of ABS glue and un-wiped joints in the original configuration.

            The first pics are how I found it, and the last is how I fixed it.
            Is that CPVC cement I see in the ABS joints in the original setup?

            It also looks like the original setup actually did have a trap seal, although certainly not a legal trap.

            I've never seen what appears to be a schedule 40 wye like that with a dishwasher tailpiece connection.

            What's out there is interesting.

              Either we were looking at totally different pictures or your were looking at your upside down. Id be suprised if that thing was draining at half the rate it should have been the way it was piped. I mean that is just draining up hill against gravity. People dont realize that in a p trap or s trap that trap seal is some what helping siphon the water in a way. That ty is pretty intresting to, just no common sense at all.
