Extra deep sink not working with disposal


Does anyone know of a compact garbage disposal with a higher drain hole? I have a 9" under mount sink that was just installed, love it but now the garbage disposal will not drain .. the drain is lower than the pipe in the wall.

Your only solution is to open the cabinet back and lower the drain in the wall----

It's all about planning when messing with your plumbing, bro! I see it too often.
Try a well stocked plumbing supply house and see if they have, or can order a low inlet trap. This may be enough to bring your trap high enough to drain right. Do you have pics of this setup you've gotten yourself into?

Been there, done that years ago. Disposals don't make very good pumps.
