I need to connect the drains on two sinks in a circa 1965 home and
I've measured the existing drain pipe and the threads are 1 3/4"
diameter. Not being a plumber I thought the standard was 1 1/4 or
Can someone advise whether connection to a 1 3/4 drain pipe is doable
with parts available from big box HI centers?
On one of the drains the pipe coming out of the wall does a 90 turn
down where the threads are. On the other the pipe is straight out
from the wall and the threads are facing you as you look in.
Please advise if there is an adapter required???
I'm good with a wrench but too cheap to call a plumber to connect a
couple of pipes.
The ONLY pipe(s) I have are coming out of the wall and is the drain. I
talked to a plumber today and found out that the 1 3/4 external
diameter is actually a 1 1/2 INTERNAL diameter. I thank Pat for
mentioning that. I did take photos and will visit the big box
