double sink gurgles!
I recently replaced my single sink vanity with a double sink vanity. The P trap is in the center and now when you run one sink you can heat gurgling noises from the other one. Never had a double sink before, is this normal?

Yes, you're hearing the sound of water slapping over and back and then down the pipe above the P-trap because the sound reverberates from the idle drain.

Is the sink vented?

if it is significant gurgling, then the next item to check is the vent. you should have a vent right near by going to outside world free of obstructions.

Yep the sink is vented. The gurgling isn't to bad more of an annoyance. I was just hoping there was an easy fix.
