Is twisting a P trap to offset/redirect it ever "too much"? See pics...


I have a odd situation where the drain hole has to be a bit forward in the cabinet because of the foundation sill below. This, combined with a AAV, is causing the reach of the trap to be really far back in the cabinet. If I "twist" the P trap so it almost overlaps, it aligns with the hole.

Is twisting the P trap ever "too much" and will cause drainage issues? Should I just do a offset (65/65) with the drain coming up to put it further back in the corner to alleviate the P trap twist?

I can't post photos yet I guess so here are the links (take out the space):

Welcome to the forum 157. Try introducing yourself a few more times and you'll be able to post pics. I think you need 10 posts.

Have to see a pic what your talking about for sure, but the p-trap should be fine.

As long as the trap is vertical you're OK, But I would replace the 90 with a tee and put the AAV on top of it- as high as possible

AAV only have to be 4 inches above the trap he has got a manufactured one. It's fine good job.

There self sealing if the drain does block the AAV is supposed to clam shut not letting water enter it. We do require you to put it high on a disposal discharge because it is a forced discharge when in operation. That same line also has to have a vent to air somewhere now. We learned a few hard lessons.

Thanks all for the feedback — very much appreciated. The AAV is combined with the same manufacturers trap kit (Rectorseal), so I'm hoping the height and placements is appropriate.

I would lose that configuration as it uses up too much room in the cabinet.

Use a couple of 45s and move the vertical pipe back in the far right corner. Put a tee on top of the vertical and go up for the AAV. Use a regular trap to connect into the tee.

Idaho has only recently approved them in residential remodels involving remote fixtures such as basements

In new homes- only island sinks may have AAV's

Not allowed in commercial

Manufacture specs and IPC code is 4 inches above the trap manufacture install instructions. Stack AAV are no longer allowed in Ohio.
