P-Trap Retrofit


I just remodeled our small first floor half bath. Along with new tile, paint and toilet, I installed a new vanity and sink. Of course the drain on the new sink did not line up with the p-trap, it was about 1.5" off, so I had to do some minor modifications.

Right now everything is dry fit, but before I secure everything, I wanted to post a couple photos and see if what I did was done properly and if known, up to Calif code.

Here is the breakdown:

- 1.5" male threaded p-trap adapter coming out of the stub out from the wall

- 1.5" ABS female adapter screwed to p-trap adapter

- 2 x 1.5" 45 degree street elbows attached to the slip end of the female adapter (to compensate for the 1.5" offset)

- Male adapter connected to female end of 45 degree elbow (glued, with a short piece of ABS pipe)

- P-trap then connects to that via water tight coupling then to drain.

Thx...

Looks goofy, but I believe that will work just fine---

I assume the P-trap will not go directly into the old trap adapter in the wall--

That's correct. Originally it did, but with the drain not lining up with the p-trap, I had to use the 2 45 elbows.

I would come out of the original trap adapter and use tubular fittings. The make a 45 degree.
