dual sink

when I run water in the kitchen sink on the right (the disposal is under this sink) after about 20 seconds I hear bubbling (best way to describe it) coming from the left sink. Is this due to water filling up the disposal? Is this normal?

Does water ever come up in the other sink? If not I would not worry about it. I bet if you look the output from the disposer fits to a T connected to the other sink and then to a common trap.

the only time it will come up in the other sink is when I have a lot of water in the sink with the disposer and I start the disposer.

Do you have a dishwasher? Where is the dishwasher's waste water line attached to your under-the-sink plumbing? Some adapters for dishwasher disposal have a sort of baffle built into them to prevent water coming from upstream from entering the dishwasher disposal line. IF you have a dishwasher, and the dishwasher disposal line is attached after the sink(s), this may slow down the output of water from the sink(s). I would say the "bubbling or gurgling" sound is normal and a sure-fire way to know your vent is working. Thanks, David
