    Ive tried a search or both descriptions and images and found nothing.

    Does each bowl have its own trap which then connect to a pipe section leading outside???

    or is it done another way. If anybody has any links to a picture that would help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Should come with a pack that has all relevant connections.

    If not you can buy a pack of connections from most merchants.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Ive since found some pictures of a '1.5 bowl waste kit' and this has now cleared it up for me.

    The trap come after the 2x bowl are connected as opposed to individually.

    Thanks again.

    It's not the "right way" to plumb 11/2 bowls with two traps but it wouldn't hurt if you did. ;)

    Thanks leaky for the reply,

    My initial concern was that I didn't think i'd have enough room for a trap on the .5 bowl, but now having seen the 'waste kit' I see how its done, and that the .5 bowl connection is alot smaller than a trap would be.

    If the waste kits a cheap one supplied with the sink then throw it away and buy a McAlpine 1.5 sink waste kit. The cheapo stuff will never ever fit you waste pipe.

    Thanks for the tip.

    The sink didn't come with a waste kit at all.

    Cheers :)

    Apologies bud , did'nt mean to offend you , are you training then or a DIY'er . Agree with SussexPlumb1 , get a McAlpine kit from a Plumbers merchant , better than the carp that normally comes with sinks , good luck ;)

    GKU,

    No worries. Im a DIY'er and I do this in my spare time (of which I have little).

    Will do a search for a McApline kit now.

    Cheers.

    Can anybody enlighten me as to what the differences are between the Sk1 and the sk2 (ssk2??)

    Ive found compaines selling them but other than listing the fact they are McAlpine they dont detail the difference and the pictures are the same for both.

    ???

    Not to worry, ive found the info on McAlpines own website. SSk2 (2 bowl) is what I need.

    Thanks again to all who replied.
