That would not pass inspection here. Around here you need to have a slip nut on both ends.

This is why they need to be removable.

Jasin give the spam a rest will ya? Your posting so fast your not reading what your quoting. I told the OP to have the landlord fix it. What does that have to do with slip nuts and inspectors

TheEplumber said it is properly plumbed. I however, disagree. Since it would not pass an inspection that means its not up to code and since its not up to code that means it was not plumbed right.

No, my friend, I never said it was plumbed properly. I was referencing the OP's statement that the landlord should fix it. (see bold text)
Having the landlord fix it is the proper way for a tenant to make the repair....

I wonder why there is one slip nut though... WHY put one nut in the first place when you cannot even remove the trap? He's such a confusing person, that landlord...! And I don't like to use the word LANDLORD for him... it might be his land... but he's nowhere near a "lord" !!! That's why I used "owner" at first... we call it "propriétaire" in Québec, which is a direct translation of "owner".

OH... it reminds me: I DON'T HAVE SHUT DOWN VALVES on any sinks in the apartment! The only place I have a shut down valve, is on the toilet. The kitchen sink and the bathroom sink don't have valves on any of the cold or hot inlets... so if something fails, or if I simply want to clean/replace the cartridges... I have to cut the main water supply for the apartment... and the valves that cut the main water supply are near the hot water tank, in my bedroom... and the valve leaks when I turn it off... so I don't want to mess with the valve! Bedroom floor's covered in carpet!

Again... really NOT a land"lord"... he's more of a landevil!!

Alex---You are living in a hopeless apartment---

Sadly, I've met landlords and homeowners like yours---

No mechanical skills and cheap as can be----

I say fix it your self if you can--whatever he does will be worse that anything you could come up with.

Oh,---move as soon as you can---this won't ever get better---Mike---
