Horizontal Tail Pipe?

Some one added a dishwasher to a '75 townhome. Of course the dishwasher drain hose did not have a high loop. The part that has me scratching my head is the use of a tailpipe in a horizontal orientation.

Yeah, Tailpipes are usually installed vertically but is just "poor form" or is there some actual problem with mounting a tailpiece horizontally? Another $10 bucks in parts and this could be corrected but does it really make any difference?

Yeah, the little appendix is going to collect sludge from the dishwasher.

I call it WISL work (pronounced "weasel"). Stands for Wrong, Ignorant, Stupid, & Lazy.

Just say no to WISL work.
