    I wish this was a joke. In Arizona with no regulation. You can see two S traps feeding a running trap. Then you step over pipes to go through a door.

    Wow! So many things wrong about that. Yes, those traps are wrong, wrong, wrong.
    Looking downline, he uses vent fittings instead of waste fittings. I can't tell if it's a big joke, or if he's just brain dead.

    If I'm not mistaken, both of those traps drain into a larger trap, with that "little high jump, right there."

    It's vented; As long as you only fill up one side...Then the other trap serves as a vent...He even said so. LOL.

    A trap NEVER serves as a vent, unless its seal was already sucked out. AZ DOES have regulations, but you cannot regulate stupidity if they do not tell anyone they did it. Besides he is so proud of his installation that he might not want to change it.

    I can't wait to see HOW he hooks something like that up. He is the quintessential DIYer who should NEVER be allowed to touch any plumbing, and maybe electrical, if his talents with that are the same level as his plumbing.
