Um is this a mess?


That will work--technically you have an S trap ,thanks to the 45* pipe coming off below the vent 90---but it will work---
Not a proper installation---but it will work fine----

Page after page of me trying to explain this, yet he still has the vent connection below the trap arm.


I don't know why I even try sometimes.

I understand what you are saying. I had the trap below but the clean out was resting on the bottom of the cabinet. I don't have access to go in and raise the vent location.

I didn't plan on doing any of this, we are actually starting 2 bathroom renos on Tuesday (don't worry, it's not me doing them haha)

New sink meant redoing this stuff, then I realized what a mess it was in there. Just trying to make it work best I can. I really do appreciate the info.
