I know this is not theater related at all, but I always love and appreciate the great advice for all home construction tasks.
Yesterday, the wife had me replacing a nut on our kitchen sink plumbing that was corroding. For whatever the reason, the metal slip nut on my strainer side of the sink was falling apart for the lack of a better term.
Well, with any good plumbing adventure things did not go back together very well and as a result I am currently only using the one side of the sink.
I figured this was a good time to now address the issue where the disposal side of the sink occasionally backs up, even when I only have water running in it. I usually just turn the disposal on and the water drains.
While looking for the fix, I found the following: http://www.nettally.com/palmk/GDplumbing.html
This is exactly what I have, except I also have a disposal elbow present before running over to the end outlet tee. My question is about this being to code or not. I thought this might be a double p-trap setup but I am not sure. The issue with a double p-trap they say is that the one side could potentially suck the water from the other p trap, but maybe I am misunderstanding.
Therefore, to be sure, I wanted to ask before installing this configuration. As the article states this as a better solution, it certainly would seem so because each side is now independent, but I am not sure if either relies on the other to pull air into the drain to help vent or anything like that.
Thanks a ton guys as I hope to get the sink back up and running today.
