comment What would cause a kitchen sink to drain very slowly?
I know it does sound like a vent issue but I can take the one way valve off the top of the vent which is in my wall a few inches higher than the top of my sink and still get the same result. I thought of the shallow slope of the left basin drain pipe since that is the main difference in the plumbing since installing a double basin sink. I guess I don't understand why water filling the almost horizontal left drain pipe would cause both basins to not drain since the right basin drops straight down to the p trap. How can water in the horizontal pipe "get in the way" where it runs into the vert?
