    Default New Bathroom Vanity - DIY Plumbing

    My husband and I just installed a new bathroom vanity from Ikea. The house was built in the 1970s. Water pipes are copper and the drain line is ABS.

    We ran into a few challenges because the Ikea faucet connections were 1/2" instead of 3/8" and were also not long enough. We used a 1/2" male-male adapter to join the Ikea connections to a 1/2" to 3/8" supply line. Replacing their supply line all together was not an option because of the strange way it connected into the faucet. We probably won't be buying an Ikea faucet for our next bathroom project.

    We also moved the vanity over a few inches to the left so it would be more centered in the space and not right up against the wall. This meant that our drain line was off as well. I have attached pictures of the solution my husband came up with.

    We are curious to know if this is against code in any way or whether it is a problem to use the "twist" connectors to connect the PVC drain pipe pieces.

    Any advice would be much appreciated!
