Dual sink pipe drain config

Can someone help me, not sure what I'm doing here... on the drain system.

How to I configure main drain to the P trap if the drain system is higher than it slid all the way up??

Not sure I understand the question. The piping MUST be higher than the Ptrap. It looks aligned pretty well, and the ptrap can be aligned with the exit tailpiece without modification. Do you have passage between the two cabinets?

Looks like your drain tail piece should be cut a little shorter before you hook it up. The right one will need to be a little higher than the left one.

The trap needs to come right off the wall. Then the tail pieces on the the drain/sink side need to be cut higher to fit where ever the trap ell ends up being....

more or less like this even though this shows kitchen sink

No offense but thats horrible.

That trap should be a hard trap and not tubular. You need to raise the whole thing to do what you want..

Ummm how will you put the drawer back in?

Last if you really want to do it right you need to possible change the fitting /venting in the wall. Then you can use two traps with seperate arms

either a double fixture fitting like this would be best...



Or something like this but you need to cut the wall open..

I went ahead and took the draw apart and glued the front on.. Works like a dream.

That other stuff looks nice and all but the vanity is already glued and stapled to the wall would be destroyed if I had to take the wall out...

Real question is.. will this work?

Does it work for you? Are you satisfied?

It may work in the fact that it drains water but is totally not to code . That traps weir is wrong im sure as thats not a trap at all. Its a homemade frankenstein looking thing.

If your going to keep it like that let me know. I will close this thread as no further replys or actions needed.

Mike posted a good picture in post #4 of how it should look.
All you need to do is cut the pop up tailpieces shorter and raise everything up.

Here's some parts I had laying around to give you an idea:

Once you cut the tailpieces shorter, start from there instead of the wall.
When you are done connecting the two bowls (or dry fitting the parts), that's when you will connect the ABS P-trap to the wall and align the trap with the bottom of the tee.

What you have now would have been close to correct if you would have shortened the tailpieces. Also as is, the trap is reversed. The lower side goes towards the wall and the higher side is what receives the tee or the tailpiece.

By raise everything up, I mean the tee and the horizontal pipe that goes to the right. It looks like you could get it as high as just under the upper drawer slides.
