Re: P-trap under bathroom sink not lining up


Completed! Looks a bit pretzel-like, but I like pretzels.

Seems to work fine so far (note the pop up hole is above the wall pipe, so I don't think there will be any drain issues with that.

Thanks for the tips!

Accordion tail piece from the sink to the trap would have been the easiest. I used one for 10 yrs and was surprised how clean it kept. Other houses and one personal experience was opposite. But flex can work.

NO. Just NO.

Unless one of my clients is interested in buying your house. Then we get an allowance from you, the would-be seller, to re-plumb the home due to really bad, not to mention not code compliant existing plumbing. Any time "accordian" type tubing is found, my clients have always negotiated multi-thousand dollar discounts in order to pay to have the plumbing re-done.

Hi, all. Noob here to the forums. Question on this picture. I have a similar dilemma and I'd like to know the parts terminology so I buy the right thing. It looks like (From the wall) Trap adapter --> Some slip joint extension --> Slip joint 45 elbow --> Trap arm --> J-trap, etc. The items in red (both in text and picture) are what I need for mine to work, and I want to know what to buy. The angle on my drain in the wall is a bit extreme and I need to bring it out a little.

Thanks!
Vic

(will post a pic shortly once I'm allowed)

Re: P-trap under bathroom sink not lining up


These are the parts I need. Proper names of these?

The one in the back needs to screw on to the male threads on my 1-1/2" trap adapter coming out of the wall
