  • sink drain rough in height

    Hello all, what is the average/proper rough-in height for the drain inlet (where the p-trap attaches) for a kitchen (island) sink drain?

    Thanks

    Usually the top of the sink is 30 to 31 inches above the floor line

      Nervous,

      7 different threads about your kitchen sink installation.

      It's like you have never done this before.

      Do I know you? Your posts look familiar.

      For a deep bowl sink typically 14"-16" off floor.

                I usually rough in at 14", (when the sink is against a wall), but for an island sink, there usually isn't a framed wall to bring in the pipe. In that case I'll have a p-trap under the floor and then stub up through the bottom of the cabinet. Then add a wye, with a fitting cleanout and connect to your sink drain.

                  Very astute, and no, I have NOT done an island sink install with a disposal before. Which is why I ask a lot of questions. For me, the seven different threads encompass a different part of the project for me and while I try not to be redundant it is important for me to be clear on a plan of action before I start a portion of the job. And while I am very capable of doing all the work myself there are bits I don't completely understand and I like it to be correct when complete. If I am in the wrong form to ask advice then I apologize and you have the right to just boot me on my way.

                  I am ont sure if you know me from my posts but I have posted at AllExperts in the past as I was doing my bathroom a couple years back.

                  And thanks for the answer. I can now continue on my way.

                  Thanks to all.

                      Yeah I found that a little odd as well. I guess the therory is rough it in for a specific sink rather than using a longer tail-piece. The downside is they are stuck with a rough-in which won't fit anything else.

                        You are in the right place for questions.

                        I just got a weird vibe that you were someone else (gdavis62) and so did Freddy apparently

                          If it were gdavis he would have already said how he didn't really need our help as he is the smartest guy in the World but he thought he would quiz us.

                              Nope, tellin' you the God's honest truth, I am not now, nor have ever been, gdavis 62. I am IN NY state but nowher near the NY metro area. I live in the section that the downstaters don't know exists.

                              Interesting note on the rough-in side of the conversation, if I rough at 14" -16" from the floor I will require an extension tailpiece on both the small, higher sink w/ disposal and on the larger, deeper main bowl.

                              Is it possible that I misunderstood and you mean 14" - 16" from the floor of the base cabinet?

                              Thanks
