Using roughed in drain - on the right track?


My builder roughed this drain in during construction and now I want to use it for a sink. I just want to make sure I'm on the right track:



- Cut the 1 1/2" DWV piece mounted horizontally with the orange cap a few inches

- install an elbow

- Strap the entire assembly so that the horizontal pipe is angled towards the floor(it sits level right now?) Is this necessary?

Connect P trap like usual.

Anything wrong with my plan?

Not sure i understand you plan. What I would do is cut the horizontal pipe install a 90 degree elbow staying horizontal. install p trap in elbow. depending on what type of sink you are installing will dictate what kind of coupler you need attached to the elbow.

I redid my post I didn't understand it either. Might make more sense now.

Does the pipe need to be sloped?

It needs to slope at least 1/4" per foot towards the stack. Check it with a level if a plumber installed it it may already have the right slope. It can slope more but 1/4" is the minimum. Sounds like you are on the right track. is this a utility sink or bathroom vanity that you are installing?

Sounds good on the 1/4". I checked it with a level and it's perfectly level so I'll have to do some strapping. It's a salon sink that's going in.

in my experience (and I am not a plumber just a jack) you should be able to strap it and obtain the appropriate slope. Good Luck.

If you can, get the rough in info for your sink first. You can raise/lower that tee to match. Maintain 1/4"/ft grade on the pipe.
