Re: 2 P-Traps on a kitchen sink - any unforseen issues?
bp .... if I'm reading this correctly you have a double trap drain ( in series ) setup? .... maybe a picture ?
The problem with a double trapped setup is if a large volume of water is released down the drain it may carry with it enough pressure or velocity to pull the water right out of the traps...and you know what that means.....sewer gases ..... also the second trap tends to clog up.
I'm pretty sure it's a code violation since the IRC and UPC do not allow a double trap ( in series) but you can do a separate trap on each sink ( in parallel ) joined together in an appropriate wye to the wall.
