Height of sink drain connection


What is the maximum height to install the trap connection coming out of the wall for a laundry tub/slop sink. I'm limited to how low the piping can be in the wall. A few tubs I have seen have the bottom of the tub at 19", was wondering how much lower the drain connection would have to be in the wall.

So, the question is: What is the distance to the bottom of your sink? That will determine the height of the waste arm. A new fixture should have a rough-in guide included in the instructions.

I've downloaded the instructions for a few sinks and they've all only shown how to install the sink to the wall or the legs, doesn't show anything about the trap or connection.

In that case, figure a minimum of 5 inches from the bottom of the laundry sink to the center of the waste arm. That will give you enough room to facilitate p-trap and tail piece installation.
