Water coming out the air gap should not be a regular occurrence, though occasionally it might happen when, for example, someone forgets to run the garbage disposal. Regular water discharge from an air gap points to a restriction in the water flow that should be further evaluated and repaired. This video was taken at a recent home inspection in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island.
