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 install a sink drain pipe. So let's get started. This is a double sink so I'm going to start working backwards. I installed our P trap and I've got a 16 inch offset that I bought for this particular setup so I dry fitted this pipe to fit our sink. It was a bit longer but I had measured it and cut it so that it fits. I installed our nylon gasket and retaining nut and I'm going to assemble this offset, insert it and I'm going to hand tighten it. I'm going to install the nut, another nut and washer. I'm going to install it in the P trap. So I've worked my way backwards so I can determine the length of this tail piece that I would have to cut. The tail piece has to be inserted into the offset. So I'm going to mark it and cut it. So I've cut our tail piece to length. I'm going to install the gasket for the strainer and if you want to apply some sealant or some silicone, plumber's silicone, you can do that. I'm going to install a retaining nut and nylon washer. I'm going to attach it to the strainer. I'm going to insert the pipe, hand tighten it and I'd like to maintain positive pitch into the P trap and then out here insert the tail piece and hand tighten. So once everything has been fitted I want you to go through each and every connection and hand tighten. And that was how to install a sink drain pipe.
