Plumbing As A Hobby

This whole project reminded me to never take up plumbing as a hobby. We were trying to put in the plumbing for underneath the sink but we kept getting the water to come up like it wasn’t going down the drain. We looked at other examples and ours kept coming up. We went to Lowes and bought a bunch of pipes to possibly change the way the flow of the water might help. One guy that saw us looking at all the pipes said that we needed a vent. I thought, we have a vent that goes out to the roof. Maybe we needed another one. So we bought one and put it all together and still kept doing the same thing. We ended up figuring it out yesterday when we put a plumber’s snake in the drain and unplugged it. After that, water was moving like normal. Now, back to figuring out how the plumbing will work without leaking.
Thanks for reading!

Semper Fidelis,
