HELP!! Disposal & Double Sink Problem
Posted by Dean Smith on January 03, 2002 at 14:40:02:
What is the BEST way to install the piping for a disposal in a double sink configuration? I have it set up so the disposal waste pipe goes horizontally into a baffled PVC tee, where they (the two sink drains) combine & go down into a p-trap.

This is how manufacturers say it should go, but I still get soap suds & some spray flying up into the second (non-disposal) sink, where clean dishes are drying! Before that, I had a non baffled Tee and stuff REALLY shot up into the other sink. This PVC baffled thing also seems to reduce the flow of the disposal sink, as I have to run the disposal quite a lot, even when little solids are being processed. Looking at the tee, it's clear that the opening is quite small & could get clogged easily.

What can I do? Is it a good idea to have the two sinks drain into individual p-traps and THEN combine into a tee? I thought this might be a pretty common question/problem, but I can't seem to find any good answers!!

Thank you!!
