To raise p trap

I need to raise a p trap to clear the shelf of a vanity in the bathroom.

is it acceptable to use two 45 ref street elbows to effectively raise the drain, then a typical p trap after that?

the bottom of the trap will still be about an inch below the bottom of the wall drain pipe


so also, does the top of the p trap need to be below the bottom of the wall pipe to work correctly?

is there a part that I can buy to just save this hassle?

PD-

Since I am the worlds worst typist and know about these things, I checked my qwerty keyboard and "F" is next to "G", ...

my bet is it was supposed to read "reg" elbows not "ref"

I assume your wanting to put the 45 degree fittings on the wall portion to raise the drain connection point. One thing you have to watch out for is the two angle fittings and trap adapter fitting will add length. Make sure it doesn't push the drain piping out too far to make your P trap and it's slip fittings to work. If it is a problem it is very common to cut out the shelf of the vanity to make room.

Youíre right the extra fittings will push the drain out an inch too far, guess Iíll have to cut the vanity.
