    Default Bathroom vanity

    I am replacing my bathroom vanity. The one I bought will not be lined up with the old drain pipe. Is it possible to angle the drain without causing any draining problems?

    The answer is.....It Depends!!

    Generally, you can get things lined up because the p trap can be manipulated to line up the tail piece with the drain pipe.

    How far off is the new from the old? Can you post a pic of the underside of the vanity? Is the drain pipe through the back of the vanity or the floor of the vanity?

    Though it's not the best fix a "Flexi-trap" or "Flexi" parts for drains might work here. And yes, you can usually angle a drain at the wall but you'll probably need short-radius fittings which may not be up to code in some areas. Some places now require that "sweep", or long-radius, fittings be used except for venting. Any major plumbing supplier or big-box store will have "flexi" parts for drains, and I'd not worry about codes on this one since anything up to a 45deg fitting here won't sufficently hinder the flow and create a problem.
