what do i do with 2 stubouts?

aim57September 17, 2011

We're remodeling our kitchen and we had a plumber come to do the rough plumbing for the kitchen sink. They put in 2 stubout connections for the drain. What should I do with the 2nd connection?

We have a dishwasher, disposal and a double sink. I was thinking of separating the drains for the double sinks. So, one sink drain would have the disposal, then the dishwasher connects to the disposal, then a trap and then to the first stubout. The other sink drain would have another trap and then go to the 2nd stubout.

Does this sound reasonable, or is there another configuration that would be better?

The easy solution would be to install a "Disposal Type" End waste or Center waste kit into a single trap for the sink and connect the dishwasher to the disposal D.W.inlet port.

The second stub out could then just be capped off.

It's probably a cleanout. Is one below the other?
