Sink on Deck

Recommended Posts

I inspected a house with a large deck which had a sink with hot and cold running water. The drain line goes through the deck floor and discharges onto the ground directly below. What's the call on that? The best part is that they installed a p trap on the drain line under the sink.

Any other kitchen appliances or plumbing fixtures besides the sink? What do you think it's used for?

If it's obvious that it's for cleaning up bar glasses, dishes and BBQ equipment, it needs to connect to the sanitary. If it's for potting and gardening, ground dump isn't really a concern.

Not for the garden, definately for the party scene. My feeling was that it should go to the septic, just nasty what you would end up with under the deck, not to mention the wildlife it would attract. The house is in an area known for black bears. Thanks Bill.
