P-Trap alignment
Posted by JoeG on September 09, 2002 at 15:03:58:

I'm trying to design a bathroom remodel which involves repositioning the bathtub. In order to get the tub's P-trap to line up with the existing drain branch and vent, I'm tempted to align the trap fittings such that looks more like a pigtail than a "P". In other words, the trap would direct the water away from the wet-wall, but then loop it back towards the wall.

Can I do this? Or does a p-trap assembly have to have to maintain a vertical plane?
