Hi MistosOwner, this is Sarah with Kohler Customer Service. I'm glad to answer your question. Yes, the Vibrant Stainless (-VS) for the Air Gap and Mistos kitchen faucet would be the same finish. Thank you for choosing Kohler.
The air gap is not on the dishwasher, but is connected to the drain hose from the dishwasher. My air gap is mounted on the kitchen granite counter near the dishwasher and the sink. It provides back flow prevention for the dishwasher.
Hi, this is Laura with Kohler Co. I am happy to assist you with your question. Please refer to the spec sheet; the link is under the Info & Guides heading; it shows this air gap is compatible with a countertop up to 2" thick. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.
Air gap purpose is to release pressure from dishwasher. If the holes of your air gap face the wall pressure is blocked & leaks water. This happens if your garbage disposal line is blocked because the water pressure goes an alternate route. I bought this air gap for quality & style hoping to resolve water leaking as it is more sturdy. As soon as we cleared the blockage in the garbage disposal the leak stopped.
The hose that comes with your dishwasher should connect directly to the bottom connection of the air gap. A 7/8 " rubber hose (available at Home Depot) or any plumbing supplier is then connected to the other outlet and is connected to the dishwasher connection on your garbage disposer. Do not forget to knock out the cast plug on your garbage disposer. Should you need to extend the factory hose connection use a 5/8" rubber hose and hose clamps.
My counter is 1 1/4 inches thick and it fits. I can't see air gap because it is behind the sink. I would buy it and then take it back if it did not work out.
I don't know. Check with your local Home Depot.
