Have an issue when the garbage disposal is turned on the other sink shoots water out of the drain. Referenced this thread https://terrylove.com/forums/index.php?threads/garbage-disposal-plumbing-done-wrong.59911/ and followed the solution. May not look like it but the pipe from the dipodal to the tee is sloped toward the tee. I had to add 2 45 deg pieces because the cabinet installer ran the drain where it is. Does it need a baffle sanitary tee? Thanks in advance.

I think your tee should have a baffle. Take a look and see if it has one to direct the disposal flow downward.

Reach4. you are correct. Baffle is in there and it was pointed up. Never knew these tees had baffles. Has to use a few more connectors but now the baffle is pointed in the correct position and no water backing up. Thank you.
