Default vacuum breaker on commercial disposal

Hi, Don't do a lot of restaurant work and have two questions... how high do i mount vacuum breaker on restaurant disposer . Has solonoid to open and close water to disposer and is next to dishwasher. Also i assume the dishwasher doesnt need backflow prevention because the water fills from the top and is an air gap? Thanks Dugansz

That is pretty specific questions and that will allow non plumbers handi hack to read this.

Call the manufacturer tech support, they will say.

what does your local code state for that? different places have different codes, so whats good here may not be there, and if you cant find it anywhere you can ask local inspector what he wants since he will be approving it at inspection..

That's another great idea to check your code book, it's all in there!

You do have a code book right?

its a standard 6 in. above flood rim for AVB which is typical for commercial water feed garbage disposals. 12 in. for pvb, or svb i notice a chit ton of nonsensical comments left here by the same boring few. i thought this was a site for professionals to share ? need i explain the importance of location, accessibility and position of avb ? christ i hope not. open up ur code book.

backflow prevention devices and criteria are most def. not jurisdictional as much as they are nationally recognized. the correct and always proper install for all avb is 6 in. above flood rim or equipment being served. i notice u always have something nonsensical or open-ended as a response to every question. r u really a qualified plumber ?
