Added a sink in the garage. Does this look ok?

Hello all. I have always wanted to add a sink in my garage so I finally did it. There was a bathroom sink just on the other side of this wall. I opened up the drain line, tapped in a santee and the rest of the piping. Yes the sink in the house is the only one on this vent. This is my first ever DIY with plumbing other than the usual take the trap off and clean it out kind of thing. So any comments on my job, good or bad? I can take constructive criticism.

If you stacked the two san tees its not to code... Must use a double fixture fitting.. Dont mistake it for a double san tee... They are different...

Sorry...code is code....

Ok

Thanks for the reply. So the fact that it is not to code will it actually make a difference in it's functioning this way? (stacked)

You most likely will siphon water from one of the traps. Functioning?

This will release sewer gas in the home and you can become sick or death can occur...

Again not to code.....
