ACE Will Always Give You The Tail End Of The Deal.

Using a plastic piece of pipe like this for your plumbing is just like having an extra hand to help yourself out, to make all your plumbing fit easier underneath the sink be smart and work easier. You usually can find similar types of plastic fittings at all of your local home improvement stores such as Home Depot, Lowe's, and Menards. This will usually cost under three dollars apiece if you purchase this from an ACE Hardware store as I did. This will definitely make your job a lot easier, and not put a lot of extra stress on other parts of the plumbing under the sink areas. You can mix this type of plastic piping with chrome or galvanized piping and you do not have to worry about it not sealing properly.

Description
This piece is made of an all one piece plastic and has a flanged edge to allow for the nut and washer to tighten down on the existing sink drain. This particular one is 6" in length and 1 ½" in diameter. This is white in color and as far as I know this does not come in any other color. But, it does come in different lengths. When you install this you may still have to cut it shorter and you should have a hacksaw and file and a pipe wrench at hand just in case you need it. Usually all you will need to do is tighten this by hand so that you do not squash or pinch the washer.

Experience
This says that you need to turn off the water supply, but since I have done several sink jobs I have no reason to do that. If you have an old one that you are replacing then remove it and clean the old surface, but if this is a brand new one then measure the distance so that you will be able to fit this tail piece into place without bending the surrounding plumbing or putting any of this other plumbing causing it to twist or become bent out of shape when it is introduced to hot water.

The most important thing to remember is to put the tapered part of the plastic or nylon washer into the existing pipe so that is seals smoothly. No glue should be needed to make a good seal with this as long as you do not put a pipe wrench on the nut to get it to seal. They do recommend that if this product fails to give you the results that you are looking for then return it to the place of purchase, and you will get a free replacement or something of equivalent value free of charge.

Conclusion
I have been using these type of fittings for several and they seem to last a lot longer than the chrome counterparts. Usually the chrome ones have a tendency to rust out right at the bottom at the center of the bend at the least opportune time. For the price that you will pay for a chrome you can get three of these and have them replaced in a matter of minutes without ever pulling out a pipe wrench to fix it.
