I ran into a new one for me--
Drain on wall-mounted water-fountain at church building draining very
slow so needed to pull trap and clean it out since a couple shots of a
drain cleaner didn't solve the problem and there's a collection pan in
the top so can't use either a plunger or get a snake down it to clean it
out. Well, this sucker is probably the age of the building which is 40
or so, so what w/ one thing and another given the _very_
space under the thing, it was so thin that I ended up putting a thumb
right through it. Well, the good news is it now drains very well... :)
The bad news is after a full afternoon of mucking about to get the
remnants of the drain out the wall, I go to the hardware store, get a
new (plastic this time) trap and get ready to put it back together.
Except, the distance of the drain to the wall is only 4" and the size of
the trap is just over that so the flange of the outlet side of the trap
is rubbing the wall fitting leaving less than zero clearance for the
elbow and wall outlet section. OK, we'll do the turn it 180 trick and
circle the wagons -- except there's not sufficient clearance between the
side panel on one side and the cooling compressor on the other to do that.
OK, went to the local plumbing distributors to find a close-fitting trap
-- they ain't got one any tighter than the one from Ace.
So, finally to the question. I did a quick Google but didn't find one
-- anybody here know if there is such a thing any more? It's 1-1/4"
drain and need a p-trap that has something like 3" or less distance
center-line to center-line inlet to outlet.
