How not to plumb

This is a pic from someone who used to post here but has since moved on. I post this for constructive reasons. This person listens to no one when offered advice or even when they would ask for help.

This is what you wind up with.




Under the bus is a plastic barrel and the waste line enters the barrel at the bottom...And there's no obvious vent.
We know how well that will work....I hope!

Well....... constructively speaking: the vinyl tube section could provide good vibration resistance. And it does have a P trap of sorts.

Entering the waste tank at the bottom isn't inherently bad I suppose. Probably the biggest drawbacks to the approach shown are that there's no vent above the P trap level, so water flowing down the pipe will siphon the contents out of the trap and render it ineffective. Also there's the obvious problem of needing a way to vent air out of the tank as water flows in. While the 3/4" PVC and 1/2" vinyl tube certainly can carry water, the drain rate should be expected to be slow.

Maybe backups at the sink are a way of compelling water consumers to moderate their usage..?

I'm not understanding why they built their own P-trap from numerous fittings, and secondly why it would be necessary to visually see the waste water flowing. I don't like to see the hair clogs.
