1.25-1.50" transition


I'm installing a new Delta faucet into a new construction bathroom sink. I was told to use a Fernco between the wall and P-trap. (??) The drain tailpiece is 1.25". I have 1.5" PVC coming out of the wall. Would you use a size adapting washer at the tailpiece and run a 1.5" P-trap to the wall with a 1.5 Fernco, or 1.25" P-trap to a 1.25-1.5 Fernco?

Or doesn't it matter? Or is there a better way? Thanks!

I use a 1.5" trap adapt. 1.5" trap with a reducing washer to receive the lav's tailpiece.

Thanks, Eplumb. Is the "1.5" trap adapt" a rubber Fernco,or something else?

Not a fernco. It's like this: http://www.zoro.com/g/00023637/k-G30...FQcSMwodZQEANA

Got it. That looks way better than a Fernco. I'll go shopping tomorrow. Thanx!
