Never seen this done garbage disposals

Any foreseen problems installing 2 garbage disposals in a kitchen double sink?

Little crowded for hookup and very little advantage.

i've done it, nothing wrong with it at all. just didn't see the point of it. only downside is you have to pay for 2 garbage disposals.

Problems? no problem whatsoever, just the inconviences mentioned above.

The question is: why do you need 2 GDs when all you need is a good one?

Would one GD have to spin in the other direction to counter balance the torque? :confused:

I've seen some GD's so large I'd be afraid the sink spins around.

Not unless the sink straddled the equator. The one on the south side would have to turn the other direction.

haha,

If you were on the equator, you probably wouldn't have a GD.
