Kitchen Sink Pipes connected in the Basement
The kitchen sink and drainage pipe connect with the 'Y' pictured. These galvanized pipes are well past their time, and the drainage pipe on the right is only two inches wide, not providing enough room to accommodate water flow.
Work in Progress
To meet the water flow demands, the old drain pipe was removed, and cleaned up.
New Drainage Pipe is Connected
A new two and half inch drainage pipe was connected to the old pipes.
Homeowners install Job
Under the sink the odd install job can be seen. With the leak worse than when it was installed, the homeowners had to place a towel and cup under the system to use the sink. Due to the exaggerated 'U' on the system it would hold water at the base causing the water to sit.
Updated and Professional Install Job
To make the new drain work, the drainage pipe was put down through the cabinet since the old wall pipe was difficult to fully access with the deeper sink. A filter was added to the system and the old pipe in the wall was capped to finish off the project.
