    Double sink, disposal, dishwasher, 70s house - was this done correctly?

    Hello! Our kitchen sink recently developed a small drain leak due to old & cracking fittings, and I'd like to do an overhaul. After looking at some posts about this setup, I am starting to wonder whether the plumbing was done correctly when the house was built. Based on other posts it seems...

    Split level home: running new kitchen sewage line in existing downstairs bathroom plumbing

    Remodeling a kitchen that is on the upstairs floor in a split-level home. Moving the kitchen sink to a new location (want it under the window).

    Moving the kitchen to another room

    Hello everybody, I have my eyes on a cheap house, but i would want to change some things. In the picture below you can see all the changes I want to make, but the main concern is the kitchen.

    Is this bad?! Yes, it needs fixing.

    Plumber installed an island loop with this setup. He says it was done this way because connecting the vent back to the drain would cause more damage to the slab (this is a reno and we had to cut about a foot deep into the slab to make this happen). What problems am I looking at down the road?

So the vent side of the loop isn’t draining. The drain side is draining though. This shouldn’t be possible if the loop was done...

    I have a dual kitchen sink with recently installed drain plumbing that is not draining slowly (pictures below).

    Commercial kitchen code question Massachusetts

    Hello, does anyone know if a floor sink is considered the same as a mop/ service sink in code speak? The reason I ask... I believe the mop sink in a restaurant should drain into a grease trap but no where in the code do I find the mention of this. Only a floor sink. I view a floor sink as an...
