What Plumbing is Needed in an Outdoor Kitchen?

Outdoor kitchen needs proper plumbing

An outdoor kitchen is a place outside of the house where you can prepare food and cook a meal. It is the ideal way to enhance your lifestyle as it allows you prepare and cook food while entertaining or enjoying the outdoors. An outdoor kitchen really serves the same purpose and functions as an indoor kitchen, therefore has the same plumbing needs.

Many appliances and fixtures in an outdoor kitchen need to be connected to a water supply, sewer drains and gas line. Plumbing must also comply with applicable sanitary, safety and plumbing codes in your area.

Sinks and Tapware

When installing an outdoor kitchen, a sink is a must. In terms of plumbing, decisions must be made including do you need hot water and where will the sink drain to? Depending on where it is placed, an outdoor sink may be able to be connected to an existing water line or a new water line may be needed. It is also imperative to consider correct waste disposal of what gets washed down the sink too.

When it comes to gas appliances, inside or outside the home, experienced and qualified gas plumbers are the only people who should be installing these. There are many strict rules and regulations that must be adhered to. In most cases, if gas appliances aren’t installed by a professional it voids their manufactures warranty. 


When installing a dishwasher in your outdoor kitchen, correct drainage is crucial. Failing to provide the proper drain connections can result in incorrect drainage, which can damage your dishwasher. It is also important when pipes are newly installed, they are flushed so any debris is washed away. If not, debris can block the filter in your dishwasher and cut off the water supply.
