We are trying to install an air gap, after having dirty water drain back in our dishwasher. The drain tube was really long and looped all over the "under sink" area. I thought it would be more efficient to shorten it, but the tube now won't fit on the skinny end of the air gap I bought. My husband is at Home Depot now searching for a new tube (and mad at me). I bought one to use to attach the fat end of the air gap to the dishwasher (7/8" drain tube). I just wanted to use the one that came with the dishwasher with the other end. My husband cut it when I said I wanted it shorter - which led to the problem on it not fitting anymore (too small). What did I do wrong? Is it okay to have all that extra tubing? Is there a way to fix it, aside from buying a new tube (that still has that little rubber dohicky on the end to attach it to the airgap)?
