In response to Re: Pedestal sink blues :(
The real problem is that the drain is not supposed to come up from the floor. Doing that requires an illegal, and possibly unhealthy, "S" trap. Is this a very old system, one installed by an incompetent plumber, or a DIY job? My suggestion, although it is probably too late, is to open the wall and floor and install the drain properly.

: the new sink we have is supposed to bolt to the wall in back, the problem is this: the drain comes up from the floor too close to the pedestal *it don't sit back far enough to be flush with the wall.
: So, the only solution i can think of is to either build a partial wall behind the sink or get a vanity instead of a pedestal. I'm writing this in hopes that someone out there has a better idea. if so email me PLEASE!! i'm desprate!
