  • Hobart SR24H dishwasher installation

    I got a call from a restaurant owner that wants to install a Hobart SR24H dishwasher. He claims that all the people (plumbers?) he's talked to say they would be able to install it. However, when they show up, they say they don't know how or can't do it. What gives? I have not installed a commercial DW before, but from the looks of it, it looks like a DW to me. The only specs that I see is a 3/4" supply and a 3/4" drain connection. I haven't actually been to the restaurant yet. My question is has anyone installed one of these? Any difference from this and a residential installation? I would imagine that there would be a air gap required for the drain. Any special air gap required for a commercial DW? This is actually the first commercial DW I've seen that is undercounter. I would imagine that it's more of a space saver deal. Any help is appreciated.

    i say go for it

    i do not do plumbing anymore , but if did not try to do new things then I'd still be handing the lead plumber his fittings

    looking at the spec sheet , it does not look hard .

    if you can read and do as they say , you cant go wrong . and you will now get a new customer

      I'll see if I can take a look at it tomorrow. See if there's any info that came with it. One of the suppply houses I go to has always been very helpful when selling me materials needed for the job. I'm mostly curious as to why nobody else has taken the job.

        You did notice the electrical requirements right? The water heater alone draws 37.6A. The cut sheet says a 50A breaker is req'd. You might need to pop a new breaker in a panel and pull some new cable.

        Not that it can't be done, but that might have been what scared the other guys off. If it had been me and I didn't want to deal with the electrical side I would have just recommended an electrician or subbed that part out and included the work in my price.

          Yeah, I did notice that electrical was required. Anytime there's electrical work required, I have my electrician friend involved. I'm always upfront about that to my customers and give them the option of hiring their own electrician. I price only for the work I do. Makes it easier.
