looks galvanized..You could probably spin the chrome trap off the nipple and turn the new trap to the left to straighten it out..Only issue is if the nipple spins outta the wall..Again no biggie just replace the nipple with the same length..Yeah looks tight in there but that's all you got so that's all you get..
Cool, I think I actually got everything lined up to a point that I am happy with.
Now, I may make this a new thread but does anyone have any ideas on how I can make this sink drain faster. I think since it has no overflow the airflow is restricting the flow rate. I actually had to back off the shutoff valves to make sure the flow can't overtake the sink.
I think I need to figure out a way to introduce a vent. Maybe a small copper tube from the tailpiece that runs back and then up into the hollow cavity of the faucet above the water line?
it is a Kraus sink. I emailed them telling them If i interrupt the flow from the faucet with my hand to make it hit the bowl at a different angle, the water drains quickly. However, if I let the water flow naturally the water begins to backup 2/3rds of the way up the bowl, at which point the drain rate and flow rate seem to equalize and the water no longer rises (but stays filled).
If you google "vessel sink slow drain" you get a massive amount of similar complaints, so I am not sure if it is a defective part or not, but hey, i am not going to turn down a free drain. I will see what they tell me tomorrow.Your setup for the pop-up drain is correct. Im not quite sure as to why you are having problems with water pooling up. From what you are telling me I think It might be a defective pop up drain or something going on with your plumbing, hopefully it’s the former. I am going to speak to my supervisor tomorrow in regards to this issue. More than likely you will be receiving a new pop up drain from us. I do apologize for this inconvenience Mr. [JJJAAAMMM], and I can assure you that you will hear from me tomorrow. If you have any additional questions feel free to contact me. Thank you for choosing Kraus, have a great day.
You could dishwasher tailpiece with a hose up near the bottom of the cabinet. I consider that last resort hack work though.
An "umbrella drain" (think that's right) that is controlled by pressing it often sits low in my experience & that can cause restriction. You might just have a restriction in the trap arm that needs snaking.
This bathroom appears to have been remodeled even before the last remodel.
the problem is with the lack of an overflow to introduce air into the drain. try taking out the pop up plunger and see if it drains faster. it should. the pop up is hogging up the free air and allowing the water to cover the entire drain.
i do like the idea of a vent off the backside of the popup. a grid strainer will be worse too. you can try hooking up a 1/2'' hose from the pop up rod, ball and nut joint. then run it as high as possible up the back, or it will leak. of course the pop up plunger will not operate at this point.
what am i missing,isn't the fixture vented in the wall ?
Poor Planning On Your Part Does Not Constitute An Emergency On My Part!!
You can fire me...but you can't tell me what to do!
The umbrella drain is probably trapping micro bubbles underneath preventing a free flow of water.
