Default Kitchen sink relocation and potential for blockages

I am moving a kitchen sink to a new location 12 away from the exisitng sanitary tee. I plan to wrap the new 2 drain line around a wall (3 1/2 metal studs, non-structural) to the existing sanitary tee. A new vent line will be run back (also in the wall) to the the existing vent line.

The new setup adds 12 of horizontal pipe (1/4 slope per foot) with 135 degrees of turns UNTIL I reach vertical pipe. 45 degrees after the trap arm and 90 degrees where the two walls meet.

Will the 135 degrees of turns and 12 of pipe leave the drain more susceptible to blockages? Am I asking for trouble with this new setup? What can I do to mitigate blockages? Im going to install a cleanout.

Garbage disposals are not allowed in the unit.

Leave vinegar and baking soda near the cleanout, that's what I do.

I moved my sink in a similar way, what I found is putting a cup of liquid plumber after every load of dishes. Call me lazy, but having to mix baking soda and vinegar is just too time consuming for me.

FYI, prob every plumber that reads this is laughing already so I won't really add much, other than the fact that your other post says you've read the Black and Decker book on plumbing. I keep mine by the toilet for a good read when I have to see a man about a horse. What you need is a good Codebook but those are known to cause sudden onset narcolepsy.

I know liquid plumber is better but you have to drive to a hardware store to get it. It takes more time. Getting vinegar and baking soda is easy when you do your groceries.

I pour in the vinegar first then the soda. This pre-dissolves and lubricates the pipes. the soda comes second in like scrubbing bubbles.

I would disagree with that. My code cost me 200$ and it's way too complicated, too many damn rules and you can't even understand the freaking charts. It's like formulas on how to build nasa engines. How do you expect to pass an exam with that? The black and decker book is easier to understand and thus I think it should be mandatory at plumbing schools.

And PLEASE!! Do not plumb the new kitchen the way you drew it. Have the homeowner call a professional and maybe they will get it done correctly.

Funny how garbage disposals aren't allowed but hack work is.
