Is there anyone out there who still washes dishes by hand? Unless you enjoy when your ankles are swollen and having varicose veins as a result of standing over the sink while washing the dishes, why not get a dishwasher. May be you were hesitant thinking that this appliance is hard to install, it is not. Installing a dishwasher can be for some one of the simplest projects a person can do, if you are having troubles though you can always call on a plumber do perform the dishwasher install procedure.

You should make space for a dishwasher if you do not have one. The appliance should be as close to the sink as possible and because of this it should be adjacent to the sink. If the sink is in the corner of the kitchen, then there is only one available location for your dishwasher. If your sink has cabinetry on both right and left, then there are 2 possible locations.

With the area clean and the dishwasher ready, it is very easy to take out the appliance from its box and placing it on the created slot. You might be wondering why it has no sides or back when you take it out of the box, but don’t be surprised. It might look like there are some pieces which are missing but they are not. The front side of the dishwasher is the only one which is visible and it is the only finished side. While directing your dishwasher in, you can have a friend to help in taking the hoses and guiding them through the drilled hole on the cabinet side.

Easy Dishwasher Install

Any person who has a garbage disposal can get the dishwasher pipe installed very easily. May be you have never noticed this but the garbage disposal normally has a plug on its side. You can use this as the dishwasher’s drainage outlet. With a screw driver, force it inside the hole to remove the rubber plug. Insert the pipe, tighten it and your dishwasher installation is complete.

Slightly Harder installation

To any person who does not have a garbage disposal, the installation can be a bit technical though doable. With PVC on the sink, you need to cut out some section and put in a new intersect point. It is easy to join the two sections of your pipe by getting a pressure coupling. This is a piece of rubber pipe which has a pipe clamp on both sides. Just insert your dishwasher pipe into one end attaching the remaining end into your new intersect point that you have made. The entire process can take around 30 minutes. This is not a very long time but when you compare it with garbage disposal installation which takes less minutes, it looks tedious.

Now you now know how simple and fast it is for one to install a dishwasher. If you have not purchased one, rush to the nearest home appliance shop and get yourself a dishwasher. After this simple installation process, all the work and dirty dishes will be a thing of the past when you use a dishwasher.
