I am not sure I understand your question, but the "P" trap can rotate to any position around the vertical pipe that connects to it. However, the inlet has to remain vertical, so I am not sure how you would install it to not maintain a vertical plane.

: Hi,

: 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?
