    I need to run my 1 1/4" drain line to my Saniflo toilet. I wanted to make sure my path and bends are appropriate for the drain line. I wanted to make sure this setup was going to work since it is tight to get the drain line attached to the toilet with the discharge line. From the sink the trap...

    I have two bathrooms with separate rooms for the vanity/sink. In each of the two sinks, there has always been a problem with ugly mold. I can pour bleach and mold killer down the drain to help, but it always comes back. I decided to swap out the vanity/sink for a new sink from Ikea. When I...

    We just moved to a new house and I just finished taking the kitchen cabinets off and realized that my sink drain is going behind the cabinets (why?). My goal is to make it go through the floor (see pink) directly under the sink so it's not in the way and I'm wondering if it's possible.

    I am planning to try to unclog a bathroom sink drain. The last time we had a slow drain (about 9 months maybe?) we used Drano. I wanted to try something a little different this time. This is my first ever attempt at anything like this, so I am learning the vocabulary as I go. Under the sink...

    I had an old sink about 5.5" deep and I replaced it with a Frankie 9.5" deep. Everything went well until I found out that the sink drains are towards the back of the sink. Now the insinkerator that I have does not have room to install. The original sink had 2 separate P traps (one for the...

    What is a typical requierment for the location of a trap under a sink or laundry tub? I find plenty of references to the maximum distance from the trap to the vent. It is obviously normal to see a trap directly under the sink - but does it have to be? Can it be a few feet away? As an example, on...

    We have mold in our bathroom sinks, especially around the stops. I pulled the stops out and cleaned the mold off, and soaked them in bleach/water to clean them. I also poured bleach in the sink and let it sit in the trap. This seems to me to only be killing anything down in the trap, not the...
