Question

Help! Replacing this P trap


Is it possible to replace this setup with ABS?


That is how it was originally set up, I tried removing the U trap to clean but it was rusted and broke from the 90 bend pipe. The U trap and the 90 bend both broke off and unfortunately the 90 bend pipe is either soldered or glued to the main drain pipe. How can I replace this without spending $$$$$$$ on a plumber as its something we can't afford at the moment. I am not really familiar with plumbing but I am trying my best!

Yes the question is how.. Sorry I am not really good with plumbing I am not sure on how to replace the 90 bend pipe with ABS and join with the main line. Do I have to replace the sink drain as well? or will it fit with the ABS

The whole set up is sold as a set, with one added piece called a tail piece extension.
The extension is the short piece attached to the bottom of the drain.
The whole set up is less then $10.00.
More likely it's going to be PVC not ABS but both will work.
Any hardware, or box store will have them.
Only comes in two sizes 1-1/4 and 1-1/2. Just measure the pipe.
The was no picture of the drain adapter that you think may be soldered.
Most use a nut with a flat rubber washer to seal the drain adaptor, but it's not unheard of to see solder instead.
Going to need a propane torch if it is to get it out.

The proper way- cut the copper stub back at the end of the chrome tailpiece.
Sweat/solder to the stub a 1.25" brass trap adapter.
Now you can add a 1.25" plastic trap.
With this set up you can service the trap in the future
