Welcome to DIY Chatroom! I moved your thread to the plumbing board for more specialized exposure.

What you have is a 1/2" hot (red)
1/2" cold (Blue)
The top 1-1/2" white PVC pipe is what the Ptrap connects to
The bottom 1-1/2" pipe is a little different than I'm used to seeing, but it is probably threaded into a Clean out Tee. If so, you unscrew the pipe and install a clean out plug instead. That will put it back to the wall and you won't need it again unless you have a stopped up drain in the future.

Hope this help

Edit: I just noticed your h&c are backwards You can make that correct when you connect the faucet in the future by swapping the lines.

Huh; Please explain. Hot is on the left and cold is on the right.


Also suspect that this drain line is not vented to the exterior and that the top PVC is for an inline vent and the lower is for drain.

That plumbing arrangement is common in my area, coastal SC. Bottom pipe is drain, top pipe is for an AAV.

Strange one. AAV's here are on the drain line with a tee on its back and must be 4 inches above the trap. We do not require that piping arrangement. Our code you cannot do a horizontal piping on the vent until your 6 inches above the fixtures flood level rim. To avoid vent blocking.
