: : Thanks for the quick reply. The chrome tube is actually sweated into the brass fitting. The brass fitting is screwed into the galv 90. So the brass fitting is a MPT by female sweat reduced to 1 1/4. Pretty weird I know. Can chrome be sweated? Can I get the same pipe in brass and sweat that? Thanks

: I would try to cut the piece out of the galvanized fitting, it shouldn't be too deep in the wall, then install a utility trap or galvanized nipple stubbing out just past the wall and use a regular chrome plated tubular drain trap with an escutcheon to cover the connection onto the galv nipple.

It is possible to sweat chrome. You have to file the chrome off the brass and tin it first. LonnythePlumber
