I’m putting this here, as Ceramics is the biggest user of the sink.
As you may know, recently the pump that drains the sink got a little spastic. It was very, very slow to kick on and drain. @JBluJkt checked it out, and it was full of lumps of clay. I know that we all know not to try and wash lumps of clay down the drain. We know that we’re supposed to throw those lumps into the nearby trash can. Unfortunately, not everybody reads Talk.
I was standing there, looking at the set-up, and it looks to me like the right-hand sink doesn’t drain through the clay trap. It looks like the water there goes straight into the pump. If that’s true (@mrjimmy – does that make sense to you??), then we shouldn’t be doing any clay washing up in the right hand sink. I know that I’ve always used the left hand sink, and it looks like most folks do as well.
So – I’d like some folks with some plumbing experience to look at the drain situation, and agree or disagree. If we agree, then we probably need signage – “Clay Washing Here” “No Clay on This Side”.
