The information on dish washing soap was obtained from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. "Dish washing soap, is a detergent used to assist in dish washing. It is usually a highly-foaming mixture of surfactants with low skin irritation, and is primarily used for hand washing of glasses, plates, cutlery, and cooking utensils in a sink or bowl".
This post show the eight steps on how easy it is to install a simple soap dispenser.
Step 1: Make sure you have an extra hole for the soap dispenser. Do not remove the air gap used for your dishwasher. A local handyman with a diamond drill (cost around $50) can cut the hole for your soap dispenser in your stone counter top.
Step 2: Remove the dispenser from the plastic kit.
Step 3: Assemble the kit as per the direction. Fig.1 shows the dish pump on the right and its plastic threaded tube that will be held underneath the sink with the plastic nut located on the right of this picture.
