    Question Spaghetti junction under the sink.

    Anyone got a sink like this? basin plus a smaller one?

    If so, does it look anything like this underneath?

    All these U traps and joints can't be right surely?

    I'm going to turn the sink so I can re-jig the cupboards and get the tumble drier under the worktops, but I really need to sort this mess out underneath at the same time.

    Appreciate any advice guys

    Looks like you should be able to take a fair bit of it out, hard to tell really what's going onby the picture is it only the basin connected there or is something else running through?

    the sink is called a bowl and a half m8.. there is only need for one u bend. to stop smells etc and that would free up a bit of space for u ... btw just make sure ur u bend is on the waste outlet going out the wall..
    put the u bend on the side of u sink and join the half bowl just above it

    I 'think' bbl means something like this mate (click on pic):

    Get rid of the red bits, add the green bit and change the blue bit for a single 90 deg bend out to your drainage pipe, change the yellow bit for a four way join (you could maybe use some of the bits you're
    getting rid of to sort some of it out.)

    Basically, all the area now taken by the red bits becomes free space.
