Thread: Adding a sink in the garage.

  1. #1

    Default Adding a sink in the garage.

    hi,

    I need help with the supply lines. if you look at the picture of the drail line i already installed you can see the blue tape and red tape at the existing 1/2 inch copper.

    I tapped into the adjacent wall master bath vanity sinks...one of them.

    I was thinking of cutting the 1/2 copper and then adding a compression Tee fitting then doing copper line with more 90 degree compression elbows to get where i need to go.

    OR

    is there a Tee out there somewhere, that i can Tee into the existing 1/2 copper sink lines and then thread in a long stainless steel flex or pvc line and go straight to the bottom of the sink handles?

    oh, side note, do they have stud repair braces to repair the 5 stud bottoms i killed...lol.

    Are you planning on a revent from the new sink? I think you need one.

    Default drain

    1. That was the wrong fitting that you used to tie into the vertical drain. You have created an illegal "S" trap, actually a "3/4 S" trap but just as improper.
    2. What else did you get for Christmas besides a chain saw.
    3. Someone should have given you a ruler so you could at least hack the studs a little closer to the pipe.

    A sanitary tee.

    Maybe they should have given you a DeWalt drill so you could make neat holes.

    Nope, it is too late for any.

    okay, i see the sanitary tee allows vent air....with the S i made, it can restrict it with heavy water flow at that S point......from what i gather its a problem if you have tons of water going down at once.........for an occasional wash your hands sink.......i think i can live with the S-tee i have.

    I'm here asking because obviously this isn't my line of usual business.......I'm more into installing turbos on cars, engine swaps, etc...

    You REALLY need to talk to a structural engineer at this point. You don't want to make your 3D structure a 2D....Having seen your "joist project" plans, I am just saying...

    I can't see your pics right now, but keep in mind that nails bend and screws break. As such, structural framing should never be screwed unless your dealing with specifically designed manufactured assemblies.

    No, they are a complete cut stud brace...kind that wrap around the pipe cut out...

    Those you pictured, i read are for only notching 1/3 of the way..i cut it all the way..

    Those aren't for total replacement either. If you cut clean through you'll have to sister in another full stud, properly notched.
