Hello All!
I've searched for quite a while on ways to support the copper indirect drain pipe connecting the 3 bowls of a commercial triple bowl kitchen sink. All Bowls have a trip lever drain and either connect to the copper with a 1-1/2" nut and ferrule straight into the trip lever drain threaded outlet or by means of a D'sanko adapter. Each bowl connects to the 2" copper drain through tees. Overall the length of the copper is about 7 feet.

I've had numerous calls on this due to the cleaning people beating the hell out of the drain while mopping or sweeping and continuously hitting the drain. I am looking for a while to support the drain and secure it to the kitchen sink cross members or something. I was looking at using split rings and some all thread which I've done before, but I was looking to see if anyone knew of any products that were made for this application. How are others supporting the triple bowl kitchen sink drains.

Thanks for any help!:thumbup:

Thanks for the replies, I really appreciate them.

As for Mop Bollards, I have never heard of those and evidently google hasn't either, the only response I got from google was a reference to this post, hehehe. Any other info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

For the pvc drain. No can do. Non-combustible construction, even though it would work alot better with alot less problems.

I have used the split rings before, clamping one ring to the cross member of the sink and the other split ring to the drain and using all thread to connect the two, but before I did that on this one I just wanted to check if anyone has seen or heard of an actual device or product for this.

Thanks again for any help.

Appreciate the help. Thanks for the pointers. I used some all thread and other hardware to clamp the drain with the cross member of the kitchen sink. I've done this before but usually the uni strut is straight with the drain pipe which allows it to be right side down, and I like to use split rings instead of conduit hangers.

Heres some pics...




Thanks for the help!:eek:

One of the problems was the drain being maybe 1/4" under the sink cross member. I couldnt put any clamps directly above the drain, they had to be offset a bit with the strut at an angle to it. Would've been easier if I couldve put a strap directly above the drain.
