Kitchen sink drains installation

 

Kitchen sink drains don't last forever however for the plus side, they are surely simple and cheap to exchange. The most typical models today manufactured of PVC plastic pipe also fitting detained along with slip fitting. In addition to making the installation fairly easy, the slip fitting makes the drain easy to disassemble if you get a clog. This image does not take in either a dishwasher drain or even a garbage disposer just a standard double bowl sink. Because most kitchen sinks have two bowls the kits include parts for plumbing both drains right into a shared trap, often having a baffle in the T-fitting where the outlet line joints with the tailpiece from the other bowl.

 

 

Kitchen sink drains include a strainer basket (A) tailpiece (B) continuous waste T ( C ) P or S-trap

(D) outlet drain lines (E) trap arm (F) and wall stub out (G).

 

 

 

 

Installing kitchen sink drains

 

1. Put together the trap arm to the male threaded drain stub out in the wall, using a slip nut also beveled compression washer. The arm must be higher on the wall than any of your horizontal lines in your set up, as well as lines into the dishwasher, disposer, or the outlet line to the 2nd sink bowl.

 

 

2. Attach a waste T-fitting to the kitchen drain tailpiece, orienting the opening in the fitting side as a result it will receive the outlet drain line from the other sink bowl. And see if the waste-T is above the top end of the trap arm, get rid of it and trim the drain tailpiece.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Combined the short end of your outlet drain pipe to your tailpiece for the other sink bowl and than attach the end of the long run to the opening in the waste-T. The outlet tube should extend into the T ½ or therefore, make certain it does not extend in far enough stop water flow from above.

 

 

4. Attach the long leg of a P-trap to your waste-T and fasten the shorter leg to the downward facing opening of your trap arm. Adjust as necessary and check all joints to make sure they are still tight, then test the system.

 

 

 

 

 

      Variation: Drain in floor

1. In case your drain stub out comes up out of the floor rather than the wall, you will need an S-trap to tie into it rather than a P-trap. Put together one half of the S-trap to your threaded bottom on your waste-T.

 

 

2. Connect the other half of the S-trap at the stub out with a slip fitting. This should result in the new fitting facing downward. Combined the haves of the S-trap together with a slip nut, trimming the unthreaded end if necessary. Great job installing kitchen sink drains.
