When you remodel your toilet, the brand new sink isn’t always the exact same size or shape as the one you’re replacing, so the brand new drain opening may be offset in the old one. The drain Sacramento AC repair specialists may not lineup with all the brand new sink, but this isn’t a difficult problem to solve. Joining a drain into your trash line when the two are offset from each other simply takes the inclusion of extension pipes into your P-trap arm. The pipes are easy to cut, and they associate with exactly the exact same compression couplings used on P-traps. You will need to keep a slope of 1/4 inch per foot toward the drain at all points together the extension into the drain.
Install the drain strainer to the sink drain. Coat the underside of the strainer with contractor’s putty; insert the drain extension — or tailpiece — through the drain hole at the sink, and screw on the retaining nut to hold the strainer from beneath the sink. Tighten the nut using adjustable pliers.
Measure the height of the conclusion of the tailpiece in the bottom of the cupboard, with a tape measure, and compare it to the height of the drain stub-out from the wall. The tailpiece should be in exactly the exact same height or around a inch greater compared to the stub-out. When it’s too long, then cut it with a hacksaw. When it’s too short, add a tailpiece extension, which can be a brief length of PVC pipe. Cut the extension into the appropriate length. Slide it on the tailpiece and tighten the compression nut by hand.
Fit the mouth of the P-trap assembly on the conclusion of the tailpiece, and slip it up until it’s about a inch greater compared to the stub-out. Tighten the compression nut by hand.
Swivel the P-trap until the flat extension arm is at the handiest position to link to the stub-out. If the drain is offset, the extension arm will be angled toward the drain or even be perpendicular to it.
Put an elbow on the end of the flat extension, and then cut a span of 1 1/2-inch PVC extension pipe that extends from the opposing side of the elbow into the drain. In some cases, you may need to install two elbows and 2 lengths of drainpipe to make the proper connection. The pipe should enter the drain connection flawlessly straight; if it is angled, the connection may leak.
Check that there’s a slope of 1/4 inch per foot toward the drain at all points along the extension. Tighten all compression fittings by hand.
Fill the sink after finishing the links, and then open the stopper and then let the water drain. Watch for leaks, and tighten any matching that flows with adjustable pliers.
