: For a bathroom sink installation I have 1-1/2 inch ABS coming out between two studs for the drain. I have trimmed the ABS as short as it can go from the wall and I have attached the adaptor to the ABS to accept the chrome wall tube. I want to attach a chrome P-Trap because it is a wall mounted sink and the hardware will be exposed. The sink drain is only about 5.5 inches from the finished wall. With a hacksaw, I have trimmed down the wall tube from 7-1/2 inches to about 4 inches (as short as I could get it) and still the vertical part of the j bend is still not lined up with the bottom of the drain (It is an inch further out). Is it ok to turn the P Trap sideways? (Although, this looks funny). What are my other options. Do they make a special "low clearance" p trap assembly?
It is okay to swing the trap--that is one of the reasons that they are mde that way. However, as you pointed out, it will not look as good as if it goes straight in. Have you tried a 1-1/4 p-trap?
