Here, we see a kitchen sink drain line having excessive bends and length of pipe in the composition of the drain line. 1. Too many elbows (This diagram illustrates 7 bends, not including the trap. Sometimes, there is no other choice but to use the number of bends you end up using when we consider trying to get the drain from the sink to the stack.) 2.

Length of the drain line (Again, this problem may not be avoidable)

Inside diameter of the pipe for the application

Poor venting

From the kitchen sink, the piping generally disappears into the wall behind the cabinet. The piping will run horizontally to a tee. From the tee, the pipe will become vertical. Gravity will lead water down from the branch of the tee. And, air will flow in from above the tee, through the sewer or plumbing vent. Proper installation of the plumbing system will determine problems or efficiency in the use of the drain. In the diagram above, the vertical pipe from the tee leads down to a 90 degree bend. The pipe travels horizontally for a short distance and then drops from a second 90 degree bend. Following the drop, there is a third 90 degree bend then the pipe is horizontal until it runs over to the stack and meets a 45 degree bend and then drops into the sewer. The use of 90 degree bends should be avoided where possible. What occurs is, the grey water from the kitchen sink becomes vented when it drops through the branch of the tee. However, the ventilation is lost as soon as the waste water piles in the 90 degree bend after dropping from the tee. From there, the grey water, levels out and is now vented from the air in the sewer. But, then there is a second horizontal drop where the water meets another 90 bend. The water will level off and then travel to the sewer.
