Vanity drain does not align with sink tailpiece

I am about finished with my bath remodel. Early on I had a plumber relocate my vanity plumbing for a new vanity. Now that the vanity and sink are in place I find the wall drain and sink drain tailpiece are too far away from one another to use the standard P-Trap. See pic.Name:  Drain.jpg

I really don't want to rip out the drywall to relocate the wall drain pipe and I am not interested in using one of those expandable flex drain pipes.

Whatever I do I want it to look fairly professional. Any ideas?

You trim down the tailpiece, put in a 90, move it 2" to the left, put in another 90 into the trap.

Professional would be glued joints at the 90's with a trap adapter for the tailpiece.

Not too big a deal really.

No plumber, but somehow that AAV doesn't seem right. Could just be me.

I think I understand your idea. Unfortunately I cannot do that. I forgot to mention there is a shelf with a cutout in the center for the tailpiece. I could, however, us a couple 90's off the wall drainpipe to get it closer to the center of the tailpiece. Thanks for the idea.


As for the AAV. This is an older house. There was not one originally and it came up in the home inspection at time of purchase. I asked the plumber to plumb for it when he moved the drain lines.

Use a 45°street ell at the wall then a trap adapter. You may need to use an extension on the trap arm.

(Or use a female/female 45° el and a male/male trap adapter.)

there is a shelf with a cutout in the center for the tailpiece.
Raise the height of the self to be above the trap.

I think that would look as good as can be. Thank you!

Ray's way is the way to go....45 street

You don't have much of a problem and the pipes will line up perfectly.
