I'm having some trouble getting the drain out of my new bathroom vanity tops
to connect to the old water drain that comes out of the wall. I have the p
trap and the piece that connects it to the pipe in the wall lined up, but it
appears my new faucet is closer to the wall the the original faucet was.
So what happens is that the pipe that leads out of the p trap and into the
wall (making the 90 degree turn) is still in the process of turning when it
hits the pipe coming out of the wall. Does that make any bloody sense?
It's not easy to describe this stuff with words, sorry.
I need about two more inches of slack to get it to work. Do I need to add
some pieces to make it bend away from the wall first, then into a p trap,
and then try to head back up and into the wall?
I suppose I could also use one of those flexible pieces (with the ribs) that
can bend, but my gut feeling is that those can cause problems in the future,
such as clogs and buildup, no?
Thanks for any advice.
