My house was built in 1953.. over the past couple of years we have been remodeling the kitchen. We gutted the old one down to the wall studs, removed a wall, took a bedroom and made a dining room. During this project we discovered that the old plumbing vent and drain was galvanized and was damaged. The past owners at some point had had PVC installed from the basement up through the floor into the sink cabinet. We removed the old piping and installed new PVC drain and vent to the roof where the old piping was located in the wall.
Sheetrock has gone up, flooring has gone down, cabinets have gone in and new granite countertops have just been installed....(yesterday)...yaay... so the sink must be hooked up... the old sink was a double basin shallow type the new one is a single deep basin.. putting in a disposal today and what a discovery I have made.
The drain in the wall is 3 inches higher than the drain output on the disposal... so this means that the disposal wont drain. Any Ideas... either we do not have a disposal or I have to cut the back out two cabinets, the sheetrock and move the drain line.... it would be an understatement to say I am not only disappointed but also, ready to light a match....
I didn't realize that drains have moved since the 1950's. We did a lot of home work on cabinets, under counter lighting placement, gas piping, Pex tubing. appliances... stone... but not today's plumbing placement..
Any body.. any where, got any ideas...?
