Air Gap

A clear, vertical space between a water or drain line and the flood level of a receptacle used to prevent backflow or siphonage from the receptacle in the event of a negative pressure or vacuum. Most plumbing codes require the air gap to be at least twice the diamter of the water or drain line with a minimum of 11/2 inches.
