    Hi guys.

    I have a 1.5 bowl sink. Hopefully the image has attached ok and you can see my pipes!

    the trap is on the 1/2 sink side. Not long after we had the kitchen done we started getting what I thought was drain smells coming up. This goes away when I push the plug down on the full sink side. It’s always been my thought that the crap that goes down the sink ends up lingering in the long horizontal pipe before the trap. I have cleaned it out a few times which helps.

    so I assume it’s normal to have it piped like this, can I fit another trap on the sink side then join it to the horizontal piece which I can shorten, or is there another solution??

    cheers!

    The flexible overflow pipe connected to left hand waste fitting will hold water / sediment etc and is probably the cause of odours.
