Triple sink drain


Greetings,
Does anyone have a good way to hook up a triple bowl kitchen sink with just one drain line? No 4way cross fittings available here.
Check out the current set up. Yes they are not connected to the drains and no trap. Price of home $465K

seen a bar sink hooked up similar, you can piece together the piping, plus add a trap in there. The problem I seen was getting the reducers to get from the sink drain basket to the piping, they have to be out there, most likely a commercial plumbing part.

It is obvious that the trap will need to be installed in the horizontal line going into the wall. I would elbow the center drain over into a vertical tee on one of the other sink drops. All 3 sinks will be handled by the one trap. Without a "cross", you don'thave many choices.

I would cut the 1 1/2" coming out of the wall and ninety it over about a foot, 90 it again to come straight out, put the trap on, then 90 it again to keep the tee from being in the way. Or use 45's.

Triple sink drain


Costa Rica? $465,000?

Are you sure it isn't a Rasta clubhouse in Jamaica?

Roll up a big joint,
twist it on the ends,
take a deep toke,
and pass it to a friend.

We jammin man.

Besides no p-trap, the strainer basket tail pieces are just hanging loose inside the drain piping, there's no clean out to run a snake into (maybe it's out of the frame), and I don't think you can connect ABS to PVC like that (except if you use construction adhesive for the pipe cement, maybe).

It is all PVC, they have white,gray and green PVC here. No clean outs you see it all. That is 2 1/2" drains run the whole way. On the other sinks they used these mechanical type traps with flex lines to stop up. I have never seen them before.
