What kind of sealant should I use on this type of fitting?


the piece that is too short can be replaced with an 1-1/2 threaded tailpiece. i had to do it once in 20 years. i had to heat the joint where it screws in to get it apart since they used something that dried hard but it did unscrew. then i doped up the new 12 inch piece and screwed it in tight and cut it too the length i needed. if you do this make sure you get the heavier gauge brass threaded tailpiece. you want 17 gauge.

I solved the issue by gluing a pair of 22.5 degree pieces together and then cut down the existing drain down about 5 inches. Glued on my new 'part' and I was good to go! Thanks for all the help!
