I'm saving for a kitchen remodel, adding a dishwasher by the sink in the new kitchen configuration. How much plumbing is needed to add the dishwasher ? Thank you so much for your help.

    Not much, just some tubing. My husband, who isn't handy with plumbing hooked up in an hour

    If they can get access to the side cupboard of your sink, you're good to add a dishwasher there.

    You can tie the drain into the sink drain and tap into the water supply lines for the sink. It's not a terrible difficult job to do but you should research a lot before doing it so that you can decide whether this is a DIY or hire a plumber/handy man for the job.

    You will need a drain hooked up to existing drain and a plug just for the dish washer with its own circuits
