I was having a problem w/ a clogged sink so i cleaned out the pipes and had noticed that one had deteriated. So, I decided to replace the piping. What I have going right now is :

double kitchen sink w/ drain pipes coming out and meeting @ a T section. I then have a small piece of piping coming fm the T section down to the trap.....fm the trap I have PVC piping going back to the main drain pipe. All of the pipes are clear but when I run water....it builds up and will not drain out. Could this be because my trap is below my drain pipes???? any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the pipes and trap under the sink are clear, then the problem has to be downstream.
Plug one side of the sink, half-fill the other side with water and plunger the heck out of it.
If that doesn't open it up, you'll have to disconnect the trap, and snake the drain line to clear the blockage.
Good Luck!
