    Bingo.

    BTW: I added a little silicone spray to that Ro-Pump. Made all the difference. Now I don't have to use Arnold Shwartzeneger type strength to operate the thing. (good thing since I don't have that to begin with)

    If this is, in fact, an island sink situation, where is that horizontal 1-1/2" piping going out through the cabinet?

    Here in Mich, that wye should be a tee. And if that 1-1/2" line coming up is a relief vent, or a revent, it should be tied into vent pipe above the flood level rim of sink, or fixture served, as code would say.
    Think about it, if that 1-1/2" line below the 1-1/2" wye clogs, the water could fill up to a certain level in sink, & then run into revent. Thats what i see anyway.

    When the vent opening is at or below the level of the trap weir siphonage can occur. Therefore the vent opening must be at or above the trap weir. Thats the reason combos are not commonly use to pick up fixtures horizontal to vertical.
