    Default Bathroom vanity p trap

    I am in the process of remodeling my bathroom. I need to temporarily use my old vanity top while I wait for the granite to be installed, about three days. I want to set it up as in the picture. Will it work?

    Your creating an s trap, it will drain but it is not properly vented.

    Might as well take apart the wall and raise the tee then. I don't want any issues just trying to save some time. I did notice that my drain goes into the wall then has a 90 to the right then....I don't know where else it goes. I imagine that behind the access plate on the wall there is a tee of some sort.

    Can I just cut off the 90 that's in the wall running towards the vanity horizontally and place a 90 going up vertically then another going horizontal

    NO! That would just create a more serious violation than the one in your drawing. If you raise the pipe you also have to raise the tee the pipe goes into. If the toilet is next to the sink, the pipe probably goes to a point near the center of the toilet and connects to its vertical vent.

    Inn; I hope you did not go to the trouble of typing that instead of copy and paste.

    Will I take it where? For a vacation in Jamaica?
    [B]No, plumbing ain't rocket science. Unlike rocket science, plumbing requires a license[B]
