Will the drain / p trap system work


I am concerned about slow draining especially. Are there any other concerns I should have? This will be installed in very tight place w no access underneath.

If there is not going to be any access, the trap needs to be glued with no compression fittings. What you are showing has a compression nut.

If the line is draining slow, a new trap wont make any difference. You have a partial blockage somewhere or a venting problem. Was line snaked?

Pleae wait, the plumbers will be along shortly. Thanks.

Thanks jmon! This is a rehab of my bathroom. Everything is new. If I may, let me explain a bit more. The elevation of the 1.5 " pipe before /after p trap is only about 3/4" difference. Is that a problem?

I'm assuming you're not planning to put it in that orientation. Aka, not sideways.
