Kitchen P-Trap Assembly Question


Hi all! I am replacing the drain assembly under the kitchen sink. I mocked up an ABS assembly and I have a question about the p-trap. I figured it would be best to use a p-trap with a union... I also bought one with a clean-out plug, but the union seems like a better option - should anything fall into the drain, a clog, etc. I also figure that a union would allow easier incorporation of a garbage disposal... should I ever decide to install one. The old ABS assembly had a p-trap w/ union.

Haven't glued it up yet. Does everything look okay? Am I correct in my logic in wanting to use the p-trap with the union?

Thank you!

I would go with your mock up. It is a personal preference but I prefer having the union.

I like the way the hot and cold are plumbed in a$$backwards.

If that is a kitchen sink, I predict your wife will hate it. I know because I just finished cutting my granite it install a larger sink.

Thanks, rj! Yes, it does look like the hot and cold lines are reversed, but they are correct. Just come out the single hole of the faucet and are slightly long. You made me panic for a second

Looks fine but an LA trap would be a better option.
