New configuration -your thoughts?


Ok, I reconfigured the setup.

I swear to God that after using every Y or T that I could find, and all the different angled items, this is about the only way I could get that damn right side to line up semi normal. With this setup both sides have their own P trap and feed the Y at the wall stub out.

Please take a look at the 4 pictures and tell me what you think...

The only question I have is, is it a problem to have that right hand side P trap do a loop to exit out.

Otherwise, do you see any issues??

Thanks!!

Bingo---cherry-cherry-cherry--you win!!!!!!!

The water doesn't care if it goes around a corner on its way out---Congratulations--it's a drain!

I knew you would get it once you had the P-traps on the sink----Mike----

hahah... NICE!!

As a part of my wanting to not take a chance, I actually poured water down it for a trial run, and it worked just fine. So an hour ago I glued all the respective parts, and tightened everything down. Ill wait till the Mrs. comes home, then take it for a trial run.

You know, after all those headaches of moving pcs around, up, down, in, out, different angles, sizes, blah, blah, ultimately, now that its all done, this actually looks fairly simple and makes more sense.

But jeez louise, it was quite a brain fart for me for quite a while...!

Thanks again, Mike, for all the help. I feel much better about the way it turned out, and, unlike the last mock up, this one I can actually take apart if the P trap gets stuck, leaks, etc..

Man... I need a drink...!

I know it's an old thread, but I was looking for information on how to add a 2nd bathroom sink and found that post
I have 2 questions:
1) I thought it was not code to have 2 sinks with 1 p-trap each draining into the same drain pipe?
2) How can I do - without opening the wall - to install the drain for my 2nd sink (it will be 42" center to center from the 1st one). I've read it should not be more than 30" to simply attach the 2nd sink (without p-trap) to the 1st one

Thanks

that monstrosity is not code by any means....come out of the wall with a ptrap..not that tubular garbage...then use a T fitting ontop of the trap http://www.amazon.com/LASCO-03-4281-...ubular+drain+T and now you can run tubular connectors to each sink with an el bend to the tail pieces.. http://www.amazon.com/Lincoln-108912...bular+drain+90

if you have the trap under one sink, try and go straight up into the tailpiece, like a double bowl kitchen sink..

I hope you understood it was not my thread, nor my picture
But I've been doing some searches, and I read it was not OK to have 2 p-trap on 1 drain

Anyway, in my case, I'm looking at adding a 2nd bathroom sink next to the original one (but it will be 42" center to center)
So right now, I only have 1 pipe going into the wall

42" is too far to run a continuous waste per the Uniform Plumbing Code that I use.
This would require 2 traps and trap arms coming from the vert, drain

But can I use the same pipe coming out of the wall, or I have no other choice than opening the wall?

the correct way would to open the wall and use a double tap TY so both traps are properly vented ...now you can sneak by by using AAVs on each trap and connecting to the pipe coming out of the wall...

AAV?

The drain coming out of the wall won't be centered between the 2 sinks
Actually, the current sink is slightly on the left of the wall stub out. The 2nd sink will go on the right.
So actually, the wall stub out will be in between, but ~10" from the left sink and ~30" from the right one
I will measure tonight, and make a quick sketch....

air admittance valves..google it..but the piping will look like crapola inside the vanities...and what about the water lines? if your replacing the vanity, to open the wall and pipe behind the wall will make it so much easier in the end...

OK, so here are more details:
A contractor is coming to tile the floor of my master bathroom
Im planning to use IKEA kitchen cabinets to build a 96 long vanity with 2 sinks (and yes I know kitchen cabinets are deeper, but its OK, my bathroom is quite large)
The IKEA cabinet are 30 high, and they need to rest on legs or a frame
My current water lines come from the floor, underneath the current vanity.
So my idea was to build a frame to support the cabinet (~4 high and run the water lines inside that frame should not be too difficult)

The contractor was suggesting to have his plumber to come first and cut open the floor to run the water lines under the second sink. And In the meantime, he would do what is necessary for the waste line (by the way, I think but not sure that my walls are made of 2 x 4sIs it OK to run new drain pipe thru 3.5 wall studs???)
Anyway, running the water lines into the frame seems relatively easy, so think I could do it myself

Now I have to decide if I ask him to take care of the drain, or I can try to do it myself But I want to make sure to do It properly though. This is why Im asking on the forum..
