Double dishwasher, dble sink garbage disposal dilemma
 
Hi

I was wondering if someone can help me. I had this configuration installed 2 years ago and since I’ve had to snake the main line (in my back yard) at least every 6 months. Im tired of renting a snake, shouldn’t my garbage disposal be on the left side? My drain is on the right side and I noticed with 2 of my family members that on their set up (the same as mine) they have the disposal on the left hand side ( dishwasher on the left hand side as well. I notice that the water backs up a lot on the right side (non disposal side) until I turn on the disposal. Then the water goes down. Should I switch disposal with the non disposal side? Anything you can help would be appreciated. I’m tired of getting blisters from feeding the 50' auger in my backyard drain.

I hate double sinks...
neither one of them is big enough to put a really big pan (or the baby) into.

Convert to ONE sink and ONE disposer... life will be fine.
(and with a lot less snaking)
