    The old pop-up drain was rotted out from all the gunk and hard water, had to eventually cut the assembly in half with a sawzall due to the strainer nut not loosening, I really wanted to avoid doing this because I had never seen a setup like this one before.

    Is the plumbing for our sink fine?

    Is the plumbing for our sink ok? The remodeler had to move the drain higher after we installed a new wall mounted sink. I had a plumber tell me based on the photos below that the tee on the vent is lower than the trap so will cause it to siphon out. Then had another plumber look at it in...

    Vanity sink drain nut wont come off

    the drain nut holding the sink to the vanity is a flat piece of round metal and has no indentions to be able to screw it off. I cannot seem to figure how to disconnect the drain flange metal tube from the sink. I have taken out the push up drain piece and its only the tube and top of the drain tube.
