The most common tubular product sizes are 1¼? and 1½?. These sizes are available in brass and plastic tubular products. The trap adapter connection to the branch drain in the wall will determine the largest size of tubular product which can be connected with a slip nut and washer. This point of connection can also be reduced for 1¼? tubular assemblies, with a reducing washer and slip nut. Bathroom sink installations are normally completed with 1¼? tubular products, but 1½? tubular products will also work. Kitchen sink installations can only be completed with 1½? tubular products.

You can use one of our thread tapes or pipe joint compounds to complete this application. If you are using thread tape, wrap the male threads on the tail piece 2 or 3 times, and then screw the tail piece into the pop-up body. After the drain has been tested and found to be water tight, you can cut the excess thread tape off if desired. If you use pipe joint compound, only apply it to the male threads of the tail piece and wipe off excess after the drain has been tested.
