I finally convinced my wife that garbage disposals are horrible once the sewer downstairs puked up two years of food all over the basement floor. So, I want to get rid of the disposal and replace with regular pipes.
I did a bunch of searching, and all the results were: "take out disposal; replace with pipes; it's easy!" I am sure the work itself is easy--probably easier than all the other plumbing jobs I have done, but...
--Is the hole in the sink for the disposal the same as a regular sink basket? Or do I a bigger sink basket?
--Is there a diagram of what the piping should look like so it drains correctly, or do I use common sense and just make sure the water would never have to travel uphill?
--Do I need a trap under the drain even though there is already a trap, located lower, on the pipe it would connect to?
--What do I do about the dishwasher hose, which is currently connected to the disposal?
I tried looking up a generic diagram and found nothing.
Anyway, I am not looking for basic plumbing advice, as I already have that covered dealing with past oddities of an older home, so I am really just looking for answers to my questions.
