Relocation Sink P Trap


Hello,

I have attached a pic from a 10 year old town house and the 2nd floor bathroom. My question, can I go directly into the pipe (as indicated by the red arrow), instead of through the wall. Why, because I would like to install a cabinet with drawers, however in the current configuration, the drawers would touch the current pipe, forcing me to cut the drawer to fit.

Thanks

Re: Relocation Sink P Trap


You would still need it vented, so not really. And it would be good to open the wall and get the big picture, anyway.

Do yourself a big favor...either get something with drawers on the left side instead, or forget about them.

It would still be vented as the pipe for the vent is behind the wall...... I am just changing the entrance point.

Re: Relocation Sink P Trap


Wouldn't all that still obstruct any drawers?

Will the trap be inside the cabinet entirely, and the cabinet against the side wall? If so, sounds like it will work with the drain route as it is. (cut off, install cab, reconnect drain...) Drawer is a bit higher, right?

It's an Ikea:

Yes, the trap will be inside, but there is only a few inches behind the drawers. And if I move it from it's current location, I will not need to cut through the cabinet.

Open the wall. It Could be different and tie in higher than it seems for venting down stairs.

I had one similar to that from Ikea. Damnedist thing I ever installed. Tailpiece that came with it went horizontal to accomodate drawers.

Top was heavy as hell and the unit hung on the wall with no legs.

I can just imagine how heavy it was with the drawers loaded and the bowl full of water. I used 1/4 x 4" lags to mount it. I hope that was good enough

Lag bolts, or some Ikea-proprietary system version of them that comes in a heavy parts bag?

They seam to reverse-engineer basic assembly and installation methods.

Ya, I had to reinforce behind the sink into the studs to ensure there was enough to hold the thing up properly.

That Ikea wall unit isn't safe enough for my comfort level. A lot of weight hanging on with Ikea "jointery".
