    Hi I need to put in a trap for a kitchen sink that is being used as a temporary sink prior to major rework. The original sink unit had to be taken out as it was badly damaged by a leak.

    I thought this would be simple as its a single sink going out to a drain, however, the pipe through the wall is sloped slightly upwards and is also not straight left to right either.

    I purchased a FloPlast Telescopic P Trap from screwfix thinking that as it was adjustable I would be able to make it fit, its this one https://www.screwfix.com/p/floplast-telescopic-p-trap-white-40mm/28038, however, I can't make that work as I think I need more adjustment than the part allows however I might just be doing it wrongly.

    Here is a photo of what I have done and I would be grateful if someone could let me know what I need to connect the sink to the drain.


    Thanks

    You'll need 2 elbows and a couple of small pieces of 40mm pipe.

    Put the trap back together. Take a small piece of pipe out from the trap outlet into an elbow down, a small piece of pipe down to the pipe running out of the cabinet and then another elbow back to connect onto it.
