In response to Re: Installing drain for pedistal sink
You are correct, it is roughed in for an 's' trap. The bathroom was redone in the 60's, and new waste lines put in, however, since they had a vanity the left them in the floor rather than relocating to the wall.

I guess I will have to arrange to have the trap outside of the pedistal, not the most attractive idea but, I think it should be do-able.

Any other advice is appreciated.


: IT appears that you roughed in for an "S" trap, and unless it was from the early 20's and not relocated, the drain should have been placed in the wall. There may not be any good, or proper, way of connecting it given your situation.

: : Hi folks,

: : This is my first post. I am installing a pedistal sink in out bathroom. My problem is putting the drain together. The pedistal is not wide enough to do a normal trap. The sink drain is centered in the top of the pedistal and the waste pipe is centered in the bottom of the pedistal. Since the pedistal isn't wide enough to let the trap bypass itself in the normal fashion what is the best way to arrange the trap?
