Double to a single sink


Planning on removing our double sink and replacing it with a single sink. Currently one sink has a disposal on it and the other does not. Are there any issues or special considerations for changing this to a single sink?

Yeah unless you are changing your counter top and cutting out a new hole for your new sink.

Get the same size sink and you won't have any problem.

Double to a single sink


We found the same size sink in a single, obviously important. My concerns are plumbing. Right now each sink goes to it's own drain, plus the dishwasher drains into one. When I replace the sink do I put in a T to both drains or just cap one? I don't know the reasoning behind the separate drains. Also the new drain will be in the middle of the two so any preference on running the pipe over before going down and up or going down and up then running the pipe over?

Never saw 2 individual drains. Usually 1 trap going up to a "T" where it branches to each sink drain. The dishwasher would be connected to the vertical drop pipe.
I'd use the drain closest to the dishwasher and cap the other. Pipe the sink in the usual manner to the wall outlet.
