  • Undersink drain contraption

    I have an early version of this made from tubular pipe but then I saw Twicepipes drain contraption and thought mine could be improved, I espicially liked the hose bibb. It's all 2" pvc. The grey fernco goes on the sink tailpiece and the black fernco goes on the drain pipe once the ptrap is removed. Run the water in the sink so there's no cross contamination. My old version was long enough to stick out from under the sink so I'm not jammed up under there. I keep it steady with a bungee cord that attaches to a bracket that hangs on the lip of the sink. Version 2.0 is long enough to do the same thing. Makes for a very clean drain snaking even when dealing with black grease.

    Looks good. Handy for everyone to get the job done cleanly. I've made similar things but yours is better because it is more flexible.

    I'll be making one.

          a bungie is strong enough to keep the "adapter" from movingand possibly causing problems or under sink/on cabinet damage?

          i like the concept

            It is strong enough but you have to push your cable foward and not down. I have been thinking of making a bracket of something. that would be stiff, maybe unistrut or all thread with speed nuts.

              Careful Ben. You've now opened page one of your G17 Classified files. The guys with earpieces, sunglasses, and wrenches might be on their way.

                If only ridgid knew what else I have in the g17 vault. This is not one of better ideas. I'm keeping the good ideas for myself.

                  I'm on your coattails. Unless it involves some sort of d**n mirror.
