You can get it at any home improvement store. It comes with the P trap itself. That’s what we are looking for. The trap holds water in here so you don’t get sewer gas coming up back through. We have a trap adapter mounted here. Essentially all these fittings are slip joint fittings. There is a plastic washer that has a cone shape. it’s what seals the pipe. It acts like a compression fitting that will seal this pipe onto that fitting there. These have wings on them so they all need to be hand tightened. You really don’t need a wrench for these to fit together properly. Using a wrench would just cause them to break. We have a 6 inch tail piece extension that will go on the bottom of the drain that came with our faucet. That slips into here and everything is adjustable.

Thanks! Most videos I have viewed don’t show this part!
What is the name of the part that connects to the p trap from the sink . I mean the part that comes down from the plug hole? Thanks
Informative film, just going to install my own sink
I was wondering if i sent a photo of my waste outlet is you could tell me the parts i need and the size of p-trap. Thanks
The part that connects the p trap to the sink is the tail piece. The pop up assembly is what I think you’re referring to as the “plug hole” 🙂
By all means, feel free to send us a pic! The size of the p-traps are pretty standard at 1.25″. You’ll need the appropriate sized trap adaptor though (usually 1.25″ or 1.5″) to connect the pipe. Send the pic to hillary @ uniquevanities (dot) com and she’ll get it over to me! Thanks!
