    Vanity drain offset from pipes under sink
    I just installed a space-saver vanity where our old, larger vanity used to be. I failed to notice that the existing pipe is now not lined up with the new vanity drain. It's about 4"-6" from the top of the existing trap to the bottom of the new vanity and 4" off-center. Is there such a thing as a flexible 2" pipe/hose with a 1" threaded opening to connect the two? Or can I use to elbows somehow? Or do I have to 'lower' the trap & pipes to allow myself more room for a solution?

    I can't believe I didn't notice this until it was already in place!

    You are allowed one 90 degree change in direction on a trap arm -- Which means you can use a 90, two 45's or a 60 and a 22.

    Provided we're talking about a stub-out from a Sanitary-Tee, of course.:D
