Moving a drain


Sorry if I wasn't clear. The pipe is 2 inches (the part that is glued). The adapter is 1 1/2 inches which will match the PVC tubing you use to create the drain.

Yea I think I get it. The adapter actually slips INTO the drainpipe and not over it correct?

That's the male version. That fitting would go into the hub of another fitting or coupling.

You need a female fitting so it fits over the pipe sticking out of the wall. The female fitting has the hub on it.

Use a 1 1/2 female ABS trap adaptor like a real professional plumber would do.
