Drain stub for kitchen sink

All,

I am redoing my kitchen and I have removed the old pipes (copper supply lines and PVC waste). I put back the copper lines and now I need to connect the waste pipe. What use to be coming out of the wall was about 1 inch of 2 in pvc pipe that went to a wye. That wye reduced from 2 in to 1.5 in. One part of the wye was capped off (I changed the sink from a double to sink bowl 5 years ago). The other end of the wye went to the p-trap which went up to the garbage disposal.

What I can't figure out is what to use to connect the pipe to the sink to the drain stub in the wall. I don't want to use a coupler because if I ever have to remove the pipe, I would have to cut into the coupler and I will have nothing to work with. I was going to glue a threaded male adapter to the drain stub. Then, I was going to take 1.5 in pipe, glue that to a bushing and then glue that to a female adapter and screw that into male adapter. But a guy at Lowes who I talked to said that I may end up with a leak due to all the pipes back there.

So, what are my options? I saw that they have this black, rubber cylinder to 2 O clamps at the end of it that one could use to attach the pipes. The Lowe's guy suggested that.

Thanks.

Andy

aloggia, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
What you are referring to is either a Fernco coupling or a No-Hub (Mission) fitting. If you think you may have to remove it in the future, thats what I would go with. Good luck.

Thanks for the quick reply. As soon as I saw the name, I spotted another post similar to what I was asking.

When I say "remove in the future", I'm thinking 10/15/20 years. Basically whenever the wife would like new cabinets. Do you think this fitting would last that long?

Since I've been redoing the kitchen, I've been lurking on the forum for a few months now and have found it helpful. Hopefully I can pass on some knowledge.

Either of these fittings will outlast you and me put together. When they stopped using lead on cast iron, these are the type fittings that replaced it. Even underground installations. No problem but I doubt you can get the wife to wait that long. LOL
