Aligning p-trap and sink drain. Best setup.


I have a 1 1/2 inch pipe from the bathroom wall. The existing PVC pipe has a 1 1/2 inch p-trap. There is a reducer to 1 1/4 inch after the p-trap. What is the best setup to attach the p-trap to the 1 1/4 inch drain? The photos shows the gap.

note: I still haven't figured out how to get the photos loaded in the right orientation. I probably have to hold my camera sideways so it loads correctly. It seems the photos loaded in landscape.

Thanks for the link. The piping has a vertical and horizontal gap. The link provides a solution for one, but not the other.

I would start over from the wall with new with an angle that will get you going in the right direction.

If I'm right, the video Neal linked shows you how to bridge the vertical gap. Surely you can figure out how to extend the pipe from the wall a bit?

Proper way to do this is cut off the outlet near the wall, and build it back out using a elbow (maybe 45 degree). The trap should start at the bottom of the tail pc.



You can buy goofy accordion tail pcs, but you will likely have problems with it.

I found an extension but not sure if that would work with the black PVC pipe. Can I screw one end into the pipe since it has threads. I would probably have to use some Teflon tape since the water flows into the threads.

I found a 45 degree adapter but not sure if this would work better then the extension.

Re: Aligning p-trap and sink drain. Best setup.


Based on your last question, you may need some on site assistance.


The tail pipe extension is correct. The 45 is not. I would remove all the black pvc and discard. Looks like the white to black transition is threaded. That is good. You can unscrew the entire trap assy buy turning it CCW.


I will post again with the adapter and pcs required.

First a new thread to slip adapter,

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Charlott...00HD/203811414

Then use a street elbow,
https://www.homedepot.com/p/NIBCO-1-...D112/100677990

Next you will need a short length of 1 1/2 PVC pipe, not sure on length maybe 3-6".


Now the Trap adapter
https://www.homedepot.com/p/NIBCO-1-...D112/100345781

Trap assy https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt...704B/205153793


Then you will likely need the tail pipe extension too. Not sure on length, buy long, and cut to fit at assy.

The slip fit fittings you will need PVC primer and glue, the threaded fitting at the wall will use PVC tape to seal, and the adjustable trap assy pcs will use a plastic seal. You can brush the seal with a little Teflon paste or use nothing at all.


Dry fit everything before you open a can of glue.

Wow. Nice breakout of the parts. I have a few of these items. I'll have to pick up the rest when I go to the big box store.
