In response to Re: Drain/disposal height
: I would like to install a garbage disposal in my 1930s-era home, but it seems that the drain inlet is too high. Currently it is just at the height of the bottom of the basin. (You can see the water from above.) I could purchase a new sink basin, but it would need to be very shallow to place the drain inlet below a disposal drain. What to do? The drain inlet is part of a Y-shaped cast-iron connector joining the drain inlet, outlet, and vent together. I would need to take out part of the wall to replace it.

Before relocating the fitting in the wall lower to accommodate the possible disposer install, go to this website or the website of the disposer you're interested in. The have cut sheets with installation dimensions. Take precise measurements and see if it will fit. You may be able to save yourself a lot of unnecessary work.
...Don't forget, you still need an electric supply.
Good Luck. e-plumber
