bathroom drain stub-out what to do if glued


Or... are you talking about the height of the left hand inlet into the T compared to the height of the wall outlet?

Q: does the wall outlet have to be lower or higher then the right and left hand inlet?

You got it---water goes down hill---the left sink pipe is lower than the house drain--so it will always be full of water--

Let me think of a solution---that house drain is a bit high.

Do you have any 1 1/4" P traps on site? Let me know--I have an hour before work---might get this done in that time--

Does the wall stub out have to be lower then the T where the R & L side meet?

On the left hand side I have that 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 reduce up as high up on that sink drain as high as I can get it. Im afraid that if I make the right side T higher the water wont flow from left to right.

No.. theyre all 1 1/2. Theres no rush.. Im not going to finish glueing this till I know for sure its right.

If this has to sit for another day, thats ok.. I just want it done right, once, so I dont have to rip it apart again.

I think the part that pisses me off is that I had everything to the point where I could have opened the wall, cut off that old piece that goes to to the side, and I could have put in a lower straight wall stub out. But that idea was nixed by the Mrs. (Opening up the wall..because the wall was opened multiple times before for electrical work).

The thought of having to undo everything, especially removing that counter top which was a pita, would really suck... but if thats the only way to do this correct, then so be it.

I think the main question I have is.. does that wall stub out have to be lower then that left side horizontal inlet to the T?

Another question.. Aren't push button sink drains shorter in length then pop up style? If so, couldnt I put in a push button sink drain, which would allow me push the 1 1/4-1 1/2 pvc compression adapter higher, which may be enough to get the T level higher then the wall stub out?

You can make this work right----

Pick up two--1 1/4" sink P-traps----(and two 1 1/4" trap adapters)
Install them --loosely to the sink tail pieces--

Aim them towards the wall opening---then figure out what sort of T or Y will allow the right sink to drain,

Then start assembling the piping for the left hand sink---

When making up a sink bottom--always start with the P-traps---you then have the two points of connection and then it's just a matter of filling in the middle--

Pick up a variaty of Ts and such so you have plenty of parts to play with and see what works--
T or Y will be attached to the wall outlet---so both sinks have their own drain.

-Put a Y or T at wall.

-trap adapter and P traps at each sink.

-Aim each trap setup at Y/T at wall.

-Fill in the blanks.

...Ill play around with it today/tonight. When done, Ill get some addtl pics prior to glueing.

The trap adapter is for the new drain lines---the P-traps are the usual thin plastic trap typically used under a sink---

Once you get the P-traps on you will slap your self in the head and say," Of course--why didn't I think of this?"

Can the same setup be done using 1 1/2 pvc? I actually had the thin plastic kitchen setup you're talking about in my hands yesterday at the store, but opted to go with the 1 1/2 pvc because of the durability.

I would use the 1 1/4" because of the shorter drop--then use a trap adaprer 1 1/4" to the 1 1/2" piping that will be the drain lines.

So youre talking 1 1/4 adapter at the sink, 1 1/4 inch p trap, another 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 adapter, 1 1/2 drain lines....for each side... and then a 1 1/2 Y or T at the wall stub out?

Right--I think--All PVC is 1 1/2"----the sink P-trap is the only 1 1/4" thing in the system--except the
trap adapter --which will allow the smaller P trap to hook into the larger PVC drains--

You will see the answers as soon as those two P-traps are on the tail pieces---
