Just doing some initial research now. Our upstairs bathroom currently has a
single sink and I would like to know the extent of the work necessary to
replace the existing vanity with a larger one that will accomodate two
sinks. Can supply and drain lines be run connected to the existing lines
that are there for the single sink (essentially creating a "Y" with each of
the existing lines, with each drain having its own trap) or will this job
require separate plumbing runs further into the system?
I would use a double WYE 1 1/2". That will give you a branch
in each direction plus a CO plug in the center. Use a 1 1/4"
trap adapter at each branch inlet for the traps.
It's also possible to use a single 1 1/2" trap with a "center outlet"
TEE assembly (commonly used on double bowl kitchen sinks).
A special reducing washer will accomodate the 1 1/4" sink tailpiece
into the 1 1/2" TEE assembly. If the bowls are too far apart,
use the 2 traps instead of this method.
