Can a sink have two traps?
Also, does a double sink need two P traps?
A double bathroom sink installation rarely requires more than one P-trap. The usual practice is to connect the two sinks to a tee and then feed the tee into a single P-trap, which then connects to the drain.
Beside above, how much does it cost to add a second sink? Add in a pretty basic faucet for $44 and you're looking at $223, before the cost of labor. (I estimate it would be about $150 to plumb a sink and faucet, depending on where you live and the full scope of the job of course). The same model, in a larger two sink size, is $649.
Also, can you add a second sink in bathroom?
There are certainly much more complicated plumbing improvements that DIYers perform, but adding a second vanity sink does require some broad plumbing skills and experience. A diverse range of plumbing skills is required since you will be connecting both water supply and drain pipes.
How far below drain should P trap be?
According to the International Residential Code, the maximum vertical distance between the sink drain and the entrance to the p-trap is 24 inches.
