Hi, this is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source Guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York and this is how to extend a sink drain pipe. It's actually considered a tail piece. This is a sink tail piece and we're going to extend it using an extension tail piece. So we're going to work on the drains. We're going to start to attach the drains. This is our P trap. It comes in two separate pieces. I'm going to be placing them together. I've already rough cut the length of our P trap for our particular configuration so I'm going to install the retaining nut and nylon washer. I'm going to install the drain pipe. So if you notice there's a gap between the tail piece and the P trap. So we're going to need an extension tail piece installed which is what this is. So we're going to lay it next to the pipe, size it so we know that it's going to gap over here. We're going to mark it. So once I've marked our tube I'm going to cut it. So I've cut our extension tail piece and I'm going to install it now. There's a retainer nut and on this particular tail piece we're going from an inch and a half to an inch and a quarter so you need the proper washer. I'm going to insert the retention nut in the nylon washer. I'm going to loosen up our P trap and I'm going to install the extension tail piece, install another retention nut and gasket, washer and that was extending a sink drain pipe or tail piece. This is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source Guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York and we're helping you build a better life. Reach out to me on Facebook at The Home Source Guy and we'll see you next time.
