Adding a Second Sink to Vanity
 
Hello,

I am currently renovating our master bathroom and have ordered larger vanity cabinets and am thinking of adding a second sink.

The vanity is 75" in length (30" vanity is 21" deep; 15" drawer bank that is 18" deep; then another 30" vanity).

Currently there is a 2" waste line that comes up under what would be the left sink and a 1.5" vent that I will tie back into that goes into the wall. Given the length of the vanity, the drains would be 45" apart and I would use the space behind the drawer bank to run the drain lines through.

Should I just come off the 2" line with a double santee and convert everything from that point to 1.5", with one drain running the longer distance to the right sink (~45") and the other being a short distance to catch the left sink? Then there would be 2 traps installed. I would then have the single vent off the double santee to reconnect with my 1.5" pipe that currently exists.

Thanks in advance,
Marty

that should work fine. that is the way i used to do the piping in the walls for a double vanity.

Thanks Danny. I wasn't sure if i needed to separate the drain/vent for each sink by using a couple Wye's.

Nope, one drain one vent.
Look under you kitchen sink of you have a double sink.

Yep, nothing wrong with 2 lav traps sharing a vent
But instead of a double san tee- I use a fixture cross. It helps direct a drain snake downward rather then straight across the tee. Just a thought...
