Please help!! I just dont get it....


Hello everyone! I'm so glad I found this forum.

OK, I just installed a new sink and now I'm trying to hook up the drain system underneath. Please see pictures below.

I have a double sink with a Badger 5 garbage disposal.

The problem I'm having is, I cannot figure out how to connect the drain piping (1) to the drain body (A).

So far, I'm tried different configurations but right now I've built what is seen in numbers 1, 2, 4 and 13.

The top end of 1 is where I'm having trouble figuring out what I can connect in order to also connect to (A)

Also, 6 came with the sink and it's also supposed to screw onto the bottom of (A).

I hope this is enough info. Let me know if I need to post another angle or anything.

Thanks in advance!

Remove the ell of the disposer, you do not need it. And get rid of all those corrugated pieces UGH!

OK that helps with how to construct the entire assembly but I'm more interested in what to use for number 1 (top) of your diagram or in other words, what is connect to (A) in my picture.

For instance, when I connected (12) in my picture to (A) it leaked from the top.

Are you using a washer on the tailpiece?

I tried using a washer but it was too thick and the tail piece didnt screw on to the strainer body. As you can see in the first picture below, when I put the washer on, it doesnt leave me enough thread. When I try to screw this on, it doesnt catch.

In the pictures below, do I have the right washer to fit the tailpiece?

And just in case it's not clear.....DON'T use the flex (corrugated) pieces....

Every one of those baffles is in reality a dirt trap.....in no time that thing is going to be full of garbage....the store should be fined for even having it on the shelf.....

The tail piece should drop inside the big nut....In other words, the nut should have a lip at the bottom to catch the edge of the down pipe (tail piece)

Edit....it just looked closer....ok...it is droping down.......

Eplumber or some of the others...correct me if I'm wrong...but do you really need a washer when using plastic?

On my sink, the down pipe is metal....but with plastic..? Do you really need one?

I think that's how I have it set up in my last picture. But when I screw it on the strainer without a washer, it of course leaks, when I put the black washer on, theres not enough thread left.

That's my problem I'm trying to figure out. Do I have the right washers? Do I need a thicker nut?

Sometimes the casting or writing on the side of the tube conflicts with the nut- push hard
And I always use the flange gasket
