Post Subject: Galley sink outlet

I'm reoganising my galley storage and would like to replace the sink waste outlet with one which doesn't intrude so much into the space below the sink. Caravan makers fit waste outlets which immediately turn through 90 degrees and so save space. Is there a suitable equivalent for narrowboat sinks. Is there any reason to incorporate a 'u' bend as our waste water goes straight into the canal and not a smelly foul drain!

The U bend you have at home is to provide a water lock so smells from the drains can not come back up through the plug hole. As your sink outlet ends up in the open air there is no reason not to use a simple bend, but be aware there may be a draft through it when its cold. Tony Brooks
