    Head scratching clog

    I have had many clogs in my kitchen sink over the years. I am no plumber but this is the first one I can’t fix. I have double sinks with no garbage disposals. Water will not drain in either sink.

    Double basin to single basin kitchen sink

    I am attempting to install my own sink. I’m military so my dad isn’t close enough to help me with this project, lol. I have a two basin sink and I would like to convert it to a one basin with a disposal. The sink drain disposal combo will be on the right side because the garbage disposal switch...

    Drop in SS kitchen sink - no rails for clips

    We wanted a new sink and found one at the local Habitat for Humanity restore. When starting to install, I noticed it doesn’t have any rails for clips. It will be installed on a Formica countertop. It looks like it has a foldover lip with some holes in it, but I’m not sure what those would be...

    AAV Location or placement under Kitchen sink?

    In this situation, is the current location of the P Trap in relation to the AAV valve correct, or must the P-trap be below the base of the drain pipe?

    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?

    Drain WM (w/ air gap) to kitchen sink or tub?

    Greetings, I have two ideas, seeking feedback: IDEA 1: drain WM into sink and monitor with 90 gallons of reserve capacity standing by IDEA 2: drain WM into 84 gallon tub... both ideas would use a mesh over the drain to prevent debris going down the drain. My questions: 1. Will I overflow my...

    Double Garbage Disposals

    I'm installing a Double Sink, and want a disposal in each, one with a standard dishwasher drain attached. I'm all set with the electric (2 air switches in countertop), but I'm seeing flaky stuff on the web regarding the best, code-compliant way to do this. I found an old post that says: A...

    Water dispenser faucet

    Hello all I have one of those single hole water dispenser faucets. They all seems to be sold as a replacement faucet for a filtration system. My question is whether they require a pressure reduction or are they strong enough to be installed right off the shut off. In other words, can I just...

    Double Kitchen Sink with Floor Drain and Disposer

    We have a double kitchen sink and are replacing the old disposer that quit. The new disposer is "unexpectedly" wider and will make connecting to the floor drain very tight if even possible. Unfortunately, as you can see these PVC connections are on top of each other so no room for cutting and...

    Apartment AC drain line, washer, kitchen sink all backed up.

    It seems as though in my first floor apartment the kitchen sink, dishwasher, and garbage disposal are all connected as they should be. However, the kitchen sink (double sink) began backing up terribly. If I run the garbage disposal it empties one side of the sink into the other. I took apart all...

    Basement Plumbing Additions--Kitchenette and Laundry Venting

    Can I use AAV to vent both a kitchen sink and a laundry room? There are two vent stacks that penetrate the roof on my house. There is not a vent stack that comes down into the basement all are drain lines and soil stacks. Running a new vent stack is impractical as it would involve running up...

    Kitchen Island Sink Vent

    Instead of the typical loop vent for an island which would require concrete work, I'm opting for a column on the island to run the vent up to the attic to tie-in to a near by vent. Considered the AAV, but decided to avoid that path if possible. Would either of these vent configurations work and...
