Kitchen sink with wastebasket drawer below. Need special drain to clear.


Every ikea sink I've ever purchased comes with one of these drains. They allow you to use the space below the sink by installing this adjustable, near horizontal drain pipe that moves the trap to the back of the cabinet.

I need one for my non ikea (Kohler) kitchen sink. Do local hardware or big box stores carry these? What are they called?

You are probably not going to find anything like that drain kit in any big box or local plumbing supply stores and even if you did it may not work with your non ikea kohler sink.

That drain kit is specially designed for ikea sinks. Call or go to ikeas website maybe they can help you.

Others will be along with more advice/suggestions. Maybe someone else has used them before. Good luck.

You should be able to find it in tubular plastic as well- might save you a little money.

Pretty chrome pipes but very $$$. Why could you not do the same with PVC slip fittings?

Use a threaded 90 elbow directly to the drain basket, pipe to the back wall, 90 down to the trap.

Look for something that they use on wheelchair accessible sinks.

Careful some codes won't let you offset kitchen sink traps.

Thanks for the heads up. My city follows the 2009 international residential building code.

What's the thinking behind not allowing an offset?
