    That p-trap is for a shower. It's kinda hard to see the vent but it's there. It's to the right of the trap - in the next joist bay over. You can just barely see the pipe in that bay.

    So, it looks like I have two things to do. Connect the condensation line into the sink drain before the trap and replace those banded couplings.
