Hi all,
Looking for some advice please, I'm trying to fit a sink strainer for the old man, simple job I thought. As you can see in the picture below the first picture is where the issue is the pipe has been modified before which doesn't let the pipe sit in the housing without it falling out. They are all 32mm piping, I'm just not sure what the best part is to get for it I thought maybe replacing the 90 bend but can't seem to find the right bit for that, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Looks a mess and will drain poorly
Get a new trap kit and start again

The trap, white part, has been fitted the wrong way around probably because there's not a lot of fall available from the sink to the waste pipe to the right.

Now you've said that, that makes sense that will fix the issue. But I'd still need to replace the 90 bend as it's been cut and won't sit in the housing but it's not your standard bend I need can you help?

Looking at it, I reckon a good trap kit like the McAlpine 1 1/2 would leave the waste pipe exit too low to connect to the waste coming through the cabinet side.
To be done properly that would need to be lowered. What's on the other side of that cabinet where the waste pipe goes through?

Just the exterior wall on the other side.
I will look at lowering the waste pipe then.

I hate that horrible grey waste kit. Get rid of it all, in my own personal opinion.
I agree only done work on a few sinks in the past but this by far is the worst pipe work I've seen. Was thinking of replacing the whole lot but that would be a first for me, but I'm sure it will be fun yo learn.

X2 Mcalpine ASA10v traps, some elbows - possibly spigot ones as well, a tee and a coupling, ideally lower down. :cool:
