    Hey all... I am remodeling my bathroom and moved my sink a bit and the P Trap no longer matches up quite right which is causing it to leak. I would like to switch to PVC, but I don't know how or what I need to do or use to connect the PVC to the galvanized pipe. I have a 1 1/2 galvanized pipe...
