    Academic question, I worked around it and it's fine now. But I was replacing an old Badger GD with a not-as-old Badger Insinkerator, and where I was expecting to find a split snap ring on the flange, there was a solid ring, with no splits. I have no idea how to get that off so I can replace the...

    We just moved to a new house and I just finished taking the kitchen cabinets off and realized that my sink drain is going behind the cabinets (why?). My goal is to make it go through the floor (see pink) directly under the sink so it's not in the way and I'm wondering if it's possible.

    Just bought a deeper sink and am concerned about the height of the disposer. Looking at my current setup, I have 2 inches difference from the disposer drain height and the line into the wall; my new sink is 2 inches deeper so it looks like they will be even. 1. Is it ok for the disposer two...

    I want to swap out our double-basin kitchen sink for a large single basin. However, whenever I find how-to information it always assumes the two sinks from the double connect under the sink and travel to the wall via a single pipe. But in sink, each drain travels into the wall separately where...

    Does the tailpiece for a kitchen sink need to be a minimum length before it enters the p-trap? Can it be as short as 3" without causing any problems? I would like to install the drain and p-trap as high as possible to open up the area underneath the kitchen sink. Thanks for taking your time...
