Step One

Completely remove the old drain trap assembly. Don't try to salvage any parts - it's not worth the aggravation. Replace them all with new ones.

Step Two

Put a tailpiece washer into the flared end of the tailpiece, then attach the tailpiece by screwing the slip nut onto the sink strainer. If necessary, you can cut the tailpiece to fit with a hacksaw.

Step Three

If you're working on a sink with two basins, use a continuous
waste-T-fitting to join the tailpieces. Attach the fitting with slip washers and nuts. Make sure the beveled sides of washers face the threaded portion of the pipes. Putting a little pipe lubricant on the slip washer will ease installation and ensure a tight fit.

Step Four

Attach the trap arm to the drain stub-out, using a slip nut and washer. Remember to keep the beveled side of the washer facing the threaded drain stub-out. If necessary, the trap arm can be cut to fit with a hacksaw.

Step Five

Attach the trap bend to the trap arm, using slip nuts and washers. The beveled side of the washers should face the trap bend. Tighten all the nuts with a pair of slip joint pliers. Never use teflon tape on white plastic pipe threads and fittings.
