plumbing question

I have a question about tieing into this plumbing. Currently the piece that comes off to the left goes into a room for a bathroom sink. The two water lines coming down feed the tap for that sink. On this side of the wall I need to add a sink and water lines for a small kitchen sink. I've done plastic plumbing before but I'm not sure what would be the best way to:

1) tie into this line so I can add a drain for the sink.

2) Am I allowed to T off the existing water lines for a new faucet?

Thanks

How high is the current pipe running to the left?
If it is 17" or below you can add a Tee above that one for your new sink.

As for the water lines..yes..you can cut into them to Tee out fot the waater going to the new sink.

Thanks I'll have to go and measure that. So if the one going to the left is 17" of below I can cut the vertical pipe and T in just as the other one is. What if the one going to the left is higher than 17"? I'm not at home right now so I will have to measure later on.

thanks again.

Well...the measurement isn't a code thing. On a standard sink...if you come out with your drain any higher then roughly 24" it will be tough to make it work. You will most likely be too high to make the proper connection. That was the reason for my comment about 17" below. If the current drain is 17" or lower then you can cut in a new Tee and still be under the 24" area i am talking about for the new sink.

If you can't get a new Tee in there due to the height of the existing 1 then we can talk about alternatives.
