Talk about thinking out of the box. I like that one better. Quick and dirty. Two hose clamps and the hose, and you are done in five minutes. Not exactly code, but it gets the job done, vs. trying to crawl under the home and then find that the nut is so corroded, or the pipe, that you do more damage, then fix the problem.

Why spend as much money to hack it up as you would to make a permanent repair?

It would actually be cheaper, and besides the current way it is, is hillbilly, and the OP is getting tired of emptying the bucket.

Doing the heater hose is not going to be havked up, it will fix the problem, then let the home owner deal with it later.

I would do what Citadel suggested in a situation like this.

Onboard our ships, the connection between the toilets and waste drain was nothin more than 3" heater hose material, and clamps. It is the way the Navy does it, so they will flex a little, in case the piping moves.

Sounds like a good and simple fix to me.

A universal automotive radiator hose is going to convoluted (accordion profile) and may tend to hold debris. And the hose will not have a clean out like a proper trap.

Connecting to flanged pipe with missing nut


Back to the drawing board. Found several supply stores in the area that carry the split nuts TheEPlumber referenced, but naturally, nobody has them in stock.

If I cut the J bend off the pipe, what fittings do I need to use to connect a new trap?

And regardless of the fittings used, what exactly do I need to use to replace the old trap if I cut off the J bend in there now? All the PVC replacement parts I've seen aren't as narrow as the J bend on the pipe currently in there, and would prevent me from making the connection to the tailpipe of the sink due to misalignment.

Thanks again for humoring all my novice questions,
Mike

Guess my computer is catching up... Just now seeing the ongoing debate about using the hose and clamps. It's looking like a good temporary option right now, since as pointed out, it's not my house and I'm on vacation!

I expect RJ was thinking of one of these to make the connection.

Actually was thinking of this:





This is 1.5", if drain is 1.25", use 1.5 to 1.25 slip washers.

A good hardware store or plumbing supply will carry.
