I think this question might be related to Under bathroom sink piping (exposed) but my question is more general so I decided to post it separately.
I'm in the middle of a bathroom remodel and getting ready to buy/build/connect parts for a sink drain assembly. Things are in the early stages so I don't have precise measurements of the vanity yet. What I'm wanting to know is:
- Generally speaking, what should the recommended shape of drain pipe be?
- If a "P" trap is recommended, where should it be located in relation to the height drain outlet on the wall?
- Aside from a "P" trap, is there any other specific drain pieces that are recommended?
Here's a picture of the wall (outlet pipe is a 1.5 inch iron pipe).
