You'll have to cut more drywall out.

Re: New vanity requires new P-trap


Don't know if this will help, but there is a reversible trap where the u bend can be reversed for changing positions. It looked like every time I put a new faucet with its drain tail, the positions would change and this is what I found. I am assuming it is ok to use because it is on the market. If it goes down enough, you can drill a hole instead of a notch.

Can you find a link or a picture so I can see what you are talking about?

Also I was probably going to drill out a hole to keep the cabinet stable

this assumption will get you in trouble every time,

but I am curious to see what it is you are recommending

Re: New vanity requires new P-trap


Sorry don't know how to put a link here. It's easy though. I found it in amazon and it's called Deerborn Brass p trap with reversible j bend. I just typed "reversible trap". I bought one just in case and both sides of the u have the bevel to fit the piece that goes into the wall. Will have to find extra long drain piece from the sink.
I do take a hard look at things I buy - although, any port in a storm.
This configuration puts one more joint under water and would assume it has more chance of a leak.

Re: New vanity requires new P-trap


It looks good, can you pull the trap loose when needed?
