so.... just what i needed... another thing to fix.... lol... so as you will see in the picture my garbage disposal and drain line are the same height..... that wont work.. isnt there supposed to be a 3" gap? tell me from the picture if you think that doing this myself is a good idea... and what tools I would need.... at this point... its the weekend so i guess it doesnt really matter if I had wanted to call a plumber!!!!!



The fruitloop at Lowes tried to tell me that I didnt need a ptrap I could just use straight pipe and it would drain.... no I didnt believe him

so.... with all the plumbing peices I had laying around... I came up with a temporary fix... I looked to the side of the main drain and it appears to have an electrical line running beside it... so.. I am going to have a plumber come out on Monday and fix it correctly..... Part of me feels defeated but then the other part of me enjoys breathing without a ventilator.... so... I think I did an okay job with the temporary fix (it does have a small leak in it.... but I can at least wash a few dishes) and I feel better just being able to watch water run down the pipe and out of the house.....
