Question "P", "S", "J" trap, huh?

Very confussed single granny here.... and for me that isnt all that unual... LOL

I am installing a new pedelstal sink... or should I say trying to.

My waste drain, comes out of the wall, then makes a gentle upward bend to a pipe standing straight up that connected to the old sink I removed. Entire line looks like a very Big J...

When I went to Lowe's they tell me I need a trap? However I cant figure out which one I need, P, J or 2 J's for an S......

So my question is. How many bends to I have to have in this thing?

Please help!!!!

You need a "P" trap. The curved end that looks like a "U"
connects to your sink piping and the long straight end goes into the wall piping. There should be a nut on the piping at the wall that the drain connects into, this nut connects the long part of the trap. Good luck.

I have included a link. Just click on it to open. Go to Fig 2 and it shows a "P" trap connection. Fig 1 shows an "S" trap which is now illegal in many areas due to possible siphoning.
