Thread: Lavatory pop up drain

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default Lavatory pop up drain

    I have a lavatory pop up drain that is in sink that is siliconed to the counter. The pop up tail piece goes into a trap adapter that is glued onto a piece of pvc into a drum trap. The idea is I can't remove the trap or drop the trap adapter to give some slack to remove the drain assembly. I am jammed between the sink and the trap adapter. How would you remove the pop up drain assembly and put a new one in without having to lift the sink off.


    Thank You

    Peter

    You can cut the old one. How about putting the new one in.

    Thanks

    This is taking it a bit far but would work. Drill two hole through the pipe so you can stick a screwdriver in it and use it for torque. Obviously you have used pipe wrenches and channel locks to no avail, I assume.

    Appreciate your response but I think we are talking two different thing. I was wondering how you replace a pop up drain assembly when you can't remove the trap because the trap and trap adaptor is glued and there is no slack and the lav is siliconed down. I could pop the lav up install the drain and silicone it back.

    Thanks

    btw, pbr3232, the most proper way to replumb your setup is with a loop vent.

    No because those are only allowed on island sinks.
