Are you thinking about upgrading your kitchen sink and faucet or bathroom sinks this year? Replacing faucets and sinks are a quick way to refresh your home. There are things to look out for before its to late. So many times customers call to have there sinks reconnected to find out there is major problems. The problem is if you are getting deeper sinks such as installing granite tops and mounting sinks from underneath you need to check the height of your drain line. If you are just installing similar sinks in existing cabinets you should have no issues. When going from a sink that mounts from above to a sink that is deeper and mounts from underneath it changes the drain depth. If you don’t have the depth you are in trouble. We see more of a issue with this on kitchen sinks because the disposal actually makes the drain even lower. This causes a issue with being able to install a trap on the drain line. A trap is needed by code to keep sewer gasses from entering your home. If you are installing new cabinets or counter tops check with a local Orlando plumbing company before you get to far in the process. It is a good idea to lower the drain line if it is to high before new cabinets are in. If it is to late and your drain is to high there are really only a few options. First option would be to eliminate the disposal this will gain some height. The next option would be too cut a hole in the drywall behind the sink and lower the drain line to the proper height.
