Sink P-Trap Newb!!!
Hello, I am the farthest thing from an expert so I need some serious help. I am trying to connect my sink to my drain pipe. The problem is my drain pipe is lik 1.5 inch PVC pipe and my sink pipe is like a 1inch pipe. Plus the drain does not line up with the sink so I am going to have to put in a bend.

Can someone explain to me in detail how to do this and what Ill need to buy. Id be forever in debt. Also the pvc pipe does not have a threaded end...

First of all, where is this sink being installed, kitchen, bathroom, where?

And, what happened to the handles on your supply valves?

You'll need the following:
1.5" pvc street45 or street22
1.5" trap adapter
pvc glue & primer
1.5" x 1.25" pvc tubular trap
Glue the 22 or 45 onto the wall stub so it points toward sink(use the one that aligns the best)
Glue trap adapter unto the fitting
Assemble trap onto sink tailpiece and into trap adapter (you will need to shorten sink tailpiece)
That's pretty much it- though I'm sure you'll have more questions.
Dry fit it without glue when first assembling- then glue when you're sure it'll work
Take the picture with you when you buy parts- they might sell you the right stuff the first trip :)

Thanks for the responses. This is a bathroom sink. The handles to my shutoffs were just screwed off for the installation of the vanity. (Which I didnt think had an open back).

Sure looks like your tail piece coming out of the sink is to long, it's going to need to be cut.
A bathroom sink is a 1-1/4, not 1".

This is what the adptor looks like to connect to your pipe coming out of the wall.

This is what it should look like when your done.

It's always best to replace those old shut off valves and use new stainless steel braded supply lines.
The lines are a whole lot easer to install if you attach them to the sink before installing it.
