plumbing - 2 sinks on one drain line - Home Improvement Stack Exchange

I have what I would have thought was a common and straightforward issue. The current plumbing is in the center of the wall and will need to be relocated about 15" to both the right and left. As usual the supply plumbing is easy, but the drain is confusing.
Ever wonder how to hook up a kitchen sink drain? In this article we will provide you with the steps necessary to complete this DIY project. If you plan on also replacing the sink strainer body then you will need to take out the old one and clean the top, bottom and sides of the sink deck around the opening with mineral spirits. Once completed you can attache the drain tailpiece to the strainer body by hand tighting the tread.
A double bathroom sink installation rarely requires more than one P-trap. The usual practice is to connect the two sinks to a tee and then feed the tee into a single P-trap, which then connects to the drain. The pipes you use to connect the sink to the P-trap are the same type the P-trap is made from. They're easy to cut, and they have slip-joint connectors you can tighten by hand.
