    NO way to tell without seeing how you make the connection.

    To ask a silly question? My drain pipe (exit) is higher the the bottom of the sink. Will that creat a problem for draining?

    Default drain

    The water in the sink that is higher than the drain will empty normally. But once the level gets even with the drain in the wall it will stop draining and the water level will stay at that point forever.
