Hi all. . .

I need help with a plumbing issue. My bath sink is a wall-mount drain. The section coming from the wall cannot be removed, so I have to work with it.

My problem is that my sink drain doesn't align with the wall outlet. I've tried using a flexible adapter, but it's a dramatic enough mis-alignment that even the flex adapter is awkward to place so all connections are flush and straight. So far, all my pushing and maneuvering causes either the P-trap to leak from the wall outlet, or the drain connection at the base of the sink.

What can I do? Are 1 1/4" P-traps all sized the same? Or would I be able to find one with a wider bend that might align better?

Thanks,

Kelly

I never used an 11/4 trap smallest one I ever used in "plumbing" was 11/2"x 11/4 inlet

Then I use either a swivel or J bend trap and or double 11/4" offsets NEVER EVER plastic as I hate the thought of bacteria incubating in one of the cheap good for nothing flexible drainage wastes.

Personally I would remove the nipple / piping coming out of the wall and either extend it or decrease it to allow me to use the 45 deg double offset of waste bends
