The contractors installed the drain inlet connector shown below (pic 1). Is it correct? A straight drain pipe (wall tube) with a removable compression fitting will not insert and connect to that inlet (pic 2). It will stay lose and fall out with minimal pressure. A pipe (wall tube) with a permanent flange on the end can be attached to the drain inlet and it stays tight (pic 3). Is that what I need to purchase? Do they come in various configurations (elbows, straight, etc.)?

P trap assemblies are normally 1-1/2". They do make 1-1/4" tubular drains as well. It is stupid to use 1-1/4" just bc they clog more readily, but there you go.
the tube end should readily insert and slide easily into the wall drain trap adapter...
We avoid the hard plastic compression p-traps and prefer having a silicone washer at that joint.

Are you telling me that that is a 1 1/4" marvel connector and that is why it will not slide in?

Is the first Pic same as 2 and 3? Is the fitting in the first Pic glued on?

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
