Help me have a countertop dishwasher, fancy faucet edition

I've been itching to have a countertop dishwasher again. The catch? I rent and my kitchen faucet is a pull out model, with the built in sprayer. I have an idea below -- can you let me know if it's feasible (plus any pitfalls to watch out for), and if not, perhaps point me in a better direction? [more inside]

Help with simple plumbing question - how tight should it be?

Installing a new dishwasher, and the elbow fitting that connects the hot water hose to the dishwasher ends up facing the wrong direction when tightened as far as it will go by hand. How many more times should I turn it with a wrench? [more inside]

garbage disposal fail

Yesterday, our garbage disposal died. Then we ran the dishwasher and the food from the sink started to flow into the dishwasher. We didn't realize the extent of the problem until it started cooking during the drying cycle.

Has this ever happened to you? Is it simply time to call the plumber?
