Name: chrome bend under sink instead of P-trap
Am having difficulty finding a part on the internet, because I can't describe it well enough.
I want to put a nice looking bend under a vessel sink, before the P trap. The p trap will be back against the wall, so I'll still have access to it under the vanity's shelf. It's an open space.
Maybe "_ 1-1/4" Wall Bend Tube _" chrome plated, or "_ 1-1/4"x12" Waste Arm _" brass or chrome plated. Brass would do too.
Any advice on this installation will be appreciated.
2 bowls, 1 P trap - how do they do that?
not sure if I'm making progress.
I did find one "extension coupling 90 degrees", that has threads and a polypropylene washer. It's about 2.5" to 3" in height.
What do they sell for double bowl sinks when there is only one P trap?
I saw "CENTER-OUTLET SLIP WASTE ARM. Connects double bowl sinks to drain trap" ...
can't figure out sizes and connections
The standard tailpiece coming out of a bathroom popup is a 1-1/4" threaded chrome pipe. There are very few places that will sell anything made with this pipe.
What size is it for real, and what size threads does it have? I've been told it is not the same size as 1/14" copper pipe ID or OD, and its threads are not the same as any other threads. Really?? If so, I'm going to have to find some other way. The picture above about the ADA elbow and bend is the best thing I've seen so far. I've also found a 1-1/4 in. x 8 in., Threaded Top, Chrome Plated Dishwasher Branch Tailpiece, but no ends or elbows.
We just want to send the waste pipe away from view before connecting the ptrap down out of view under a shelf. It's hard for me to find out whether this will even be possible with chrome plated brass. My situation is similar to this one at http://www.terrylove.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6261
only in 1-1/2" chromed brass, not 1-1/4"
Correct. It is appearing to be more difficult than I would have thought.
I can get anything that is available in the biggest distribution cities like NYC. I'm closer to Montreal which is still a big distribution center.
The options I can picture installing are definitely available in 1-1/2" chromed brass but not in 1-1/4" diameter. Does this mean my intended installation is fairly common in kitchens and home bars?
No web site, store or 1-800 phone service has a 1-1/4" diameter "Flush Elbow" (or "Flush Ell"), and few have any other parts in 1-1/4". The only 1-/14" tailpiece with a bend in it (found so far) is the one RioHyde posted above. Every supply house carries it. It is a long sweep with about an inch more straight pipe above the bend, and (I think) a flange at the end, not threads. I need the threads.
So, I am wondering about putting a bushing /adaptor /reducer /washer into a 1-1/2" elbow, perhaps another type of elbow, like a chromed cast IPS or a chromed swivel traps' elbows, or whatever. Even a "Slip All End Tee" is beginning to look good.
I am wondering if another material is the right way to go. Does anyone ever paint copper to please the missus? OTOH, I don't think I can find a copper fitting to perform like a threaded tailpiece.
