Fair Lawn, NJ – Complicated Plumbing Work Inspection
The kitchen sink discharge line was made from black soft plastic hose which sagged and held water, so it is not discharging anywhere. Discharging line should be PVC 2″ (1,1/2″ in old houses) minimum connecting trap to main discharge pipe. Chrome trap should be placed under the kitchen sink, not in a crawl space. All pipes should be sloped 1/4″ every 1′ and properly secured. In our report it was recommend to have replacement and repair by a qualified plumbing contractor.
