New sink and plumbing issues.
 
4 Attachment(s)

Hello,
I recently replaced a standard SS sink & 1/3HP disposal, with a high end Granite, 10" & 7" deep sink & 1/2hp Disposal. My wife has decided that the deep side (left) shall have the garbage disposal.

That being said it does indeed fit and I have installed it but I have an issue and a question.

The issue is I can't make the dang Ptrap stop leaking. I basically have a T that goes to a 90 that goes to the ptrap then the disposal connection. The P-trap & the 90 connection point is where the leaking is. It's as tight as I can possibly get it. I'm thinking maybe if I turn the P-trap around and use a run of pipe up to the 90 I might be able to fix that issue? Any other suggestions?

The question is; In the pictures I'm posting, the Garbage disposal outlet is at the same level as the main drain pipe, is that a bad thing? I have no idea how I could raise/lower the main drain pipe as that's through the counter wall but to me it seems like this may be inheriently bad as the water could potential sit in the disposal?

Instead of running the D washer to the disposal I've been told that it's better to route it to that pipe with an inlet made for it. I HATE the way the last one routed to the garbage disposal made our house smell so I REALLY like this idea as it's isolated using the Ptraps from any venting internal to the house.

Then on the right hand side sink I want to run the Ptrap back towards the wall then put a 90 on it and then a 90 on the main drain pipe and then that's how that one will drain. It's currently angled down in the back but that's just because it's not attached to the other sink. The question is on this one is that at the 90 it will almost be at the flange where the sink attached to the pipe, is that bad?

I'm basically trying to minimize space lost due to pipes so this config COULD work really well... but hasn't been easy to implement. Don't mind the clear plastic tubing for the filtered water that's just a matter of getting the cold & hot water polumbed (bought the wrong size shut off valve).

This is my first sink so... any help would be appreciated. I saw those little decorative P traps for sinks, and I plan to use one on a new bathroom sink but I don't think those are supposed to be used for kitchen sinks unfortunately as that would save a TON of room.
