we have the same set up. our sink in the garage backs up when our kitchen plumbing is a bit clogged. thank goodness for that. this way the garage will get slopped up first.

we fixed this by going to the main water outlet pipe on the side of the house. we opened it up, cleaned out all the vegie scrap that didn't get chopped up properly by our garbage disposal & the back ups stopped. our garbage disposal, at times, doesn't do what it's supposed to do or the human operators don't do what they are supposed to do so all of the refuse just clogs up the pipes.

PlumbingSupply.US probably has the anti-siphon trap which should be used to isolate the problem. 50,000 to 1 they have the plumbing supply part you need. Many plumbers and government agencies and real estate companies use PlumbingSupply.US
