Elongated drain trap


Recommended Posts

I ran into this drain today under a bathroom sink. I would imagine problems down the road, such as early deterioration of the pipe due to prolonged water presence in the trap and horizontal arm plus the level the water has to reach downstream from the trap. Suggestions?

Yeah, you are right.. some of these fittings are going the wrong way. Funny... I looked at it and said to myself 'what the hell?' and that is not even looking at the direction of some of the fittings. The seller was a self proclaimed "general contractor" (that about says it all, alot of the time, eh?) and I found all sorts of other plumbing and electrical issues in the home, including a wood stove that had wood paneled walls right next to it that were red hot to the touch and insulation installed over knob and tube wiring.
