We recently got new counters installed with a deep sink. The garbage disposal outlet is now just about level, if not a little lower than the drain. I understand that the sink will likely not drain in this configuration. We do have a dishwasher drain standpipe which connects to the same drain pipe albeit at a lower point:
Is it possible to have a shared trap between the disposal and the dishwasher standpipe?
I’ve been reading different forums and have come up with a few ideas but don’t know which one is the best/most up to code (we live in Colorado).
- Move the standpipe to the above drain and connect the disposal to the lower one.
- Connect the disposal output to the current standpipe with a T and use the single trap for the sink/disposal and dishwasher. Cap the other drain opening.
- Connect the dishwasher drain to the disposal using a high loop and connect disposal outlet to lower drain (Not entirely sure if this would meet the CO code, don’t want to put in an air gap as we just had granite countertops installed). Cap the other drain opening.
- Connect a wye to lower drain opening and have a separate trap for the disposal and the dishwasher standpipe.
I appreciate any and all help. If there is a better way to do this I am all ears. Thanks!
