Hello there, I have a simple quick question about a garbage disposal unit. Near the bottom of the unit there is the pipe that connects to the drain, that's obvious. However, above that there is a hose connected with a hose clamp that is approximately two feet long and is capped at the other end. It goes nowhere and connects to nothing. Are disposals supposed to have a drain hose (other than the main) or a vent or something? This was here when I bought the house and it's now leaking where the hose is clamped onto the side of the disposal. I'm just wondering if that was the proper way to install this or if that hose should go somewhere and actually serve a function (which is seems like it should). Does anyone have an opinion? I'd appreciate any advice you can offer. Thank you!

I was just thinking do you have a dishwasher? I think some dishwasher drain lines may get hooked into the disposal. I'm just thinking out loud here though.

AhA! You make a good point. There was a dishwasher here at one time but it was removed. Maybe that line came from the dishwasher. Thank you!
