Pop-up Assembly, Fully Threaded?


I've been looking all over the internet this morning for something and can't track it down; figured I'd ask some of you plumbers.

I built a vanity top for my house last weekend that is a good 2 1/2" thick, and this weekend I'm going to carve a sink out of a piece of granite rock that is going to be about another 2 - 2.5" thick at the bottom. I'm trying to find a pop up assembly that has threads long enough to go all the way through the sink and the countertop and still have some sticking out the bottom of the vanity top for securing.

You guys have a link or a good plumbing supply website to check to find a pop-up assembly that has threads going down the drain farther than the standard crap at HD/Lowes?

look for "vessel sink waste assembly"

One like this - you can get diff models with/without overflow, etc:

Maybe...but this is the frustrating part about all of them I've found: They don't show the measurements of the actual threaded section of the assembly.

I have to have one that has threads a good 5" down the pipe. I have a couple of alternative ideas in mind, but by FAR the easiest would be having an assembly with threads that reach all the way through the sink and the thick countertop.

The longer ones seem to go by "extra long vessel sink drain." However, you seem to actually need a "super extra long vessel sink drain."
Jalco longest ones have 4 1/4" threads but supposedly they'll customize products for you if you want. I'm sure it won't be cheap though.

Why not carve the bottom of the sink thinner? No one should be able to tell it's thinner

I'm afraid of the stone getting too thin and brittle.

Long enough? This goes between the top flange and the pop-up arm assembly. (...at least I think it does. )

Otherwise, I'd forget about the pop-up and go with a manual lift/turn stopper type.

How about a combination of both. Carve out the bottom of the counter and the sink so you can get one that will fit. All it has to do is get three threads and you're golden.

Failing that, I'll take the above advice and grind out a recess in the bottom of the counter to get the nut on.

He's using one of these in chrome. It won't be threaded all the way.

Since you won't have an overflow, get one like that, 1 1/4" bar sink drain, w/o overflow (sans overflow)
