    That's some good info and it sounds like a workable solution. I don't have to worry about inspection here, but I do want a reliable drain that won't suck the trap dry :)

    Thanks for the drawing Redwood. I see how the syphon effect would work on that setup. But what about 45's /before/ the p-trap? Out of the tailpiece to a pair of 45's then down into the p-trap, and...

    Jim, that was close to what I was first asking: putting a pair of 45's at the outlet coming out of the wall, upstream of the elbow, downstream of the p-trap.

    Hi Redwood. Yup you're right on that, should've fixed it properly before the tile guy did the wainscot wall. Poor planning, I didn't count on the new vanity floor being that much higher than the old...

    How high does the AAD have to be? There isn't much height under the lav. The center line of the drain to bottom of lav is about 21".

    In this case, raising the drain tee in the wall is not the best solution for me. The walls are newly tiled wainscot. Cutting into it would be too tricky for me; and the other side of the wall doesn't...
