In response to Re: Disposal installation

: It's been 1 week since my husband installed a disposal in our double sink...and the water is still backing up to the other side. He has snaked it... to no avail, and has added heavy duty drain cleaner...NOTHING. What could possibly be the problem? The only one I can think of...is to buy a single sink and install it...which I actually wanted anyway. But hubby won't agree to it at this point. Thank you.

No need to argue with the hubby, give him some credit, at least he tried. The line could possibly be clogged or restricted, disposers are notorious for causing drain problems. His snake may not be powerful enough to do the job or the cable is not reaching or going through the restriction.
A baffled drain tee may correct the problem if the kitchen sink drain is not clogged.
Good Luck. e-plumber
