I am remodeling my master bathroom. I have seen similar posts concerning my question but have not gotten an answer clear enough to resolve my issue.
I am converting a single sink vanity into a double. The vent is in the wall to the right of where the vanity will sit. The original sink waste is naturally tapped right into the vent with a T and the drain pipe is an approx 20" run off the vent.
The width of space between the walls where the vanity will be placed is 73.5" so I have plenty of space for two sinks. I can extend the water supply lines with no problems but the second sink I will be adding will be approx 5' from the existing vent. Will I have problems draining the new sink if I just extend the original drain pipe from the first sink? I will have two sep. P-traps, 1 for each sink. Or can I have 1 p-trap in the middle of both sinks? Simular to a kitchen sink.
Also I will be using 1.5" PVC. I have read that if you are using 1.5" you can only be 2'6" away from the vent or if you upgrade to 2" PVC you can extend that to 5'. Is that true? Will that work? Or do I have to add a new vent for the second sink regardless? Is there an easy solution to my ramble?
Thank you in advance,
