Similarly, it is asked, how do you remove a glued P trap?
Mark the PVC pipes attached to each side of the P-trap three inches away from where they join to the trap. Make a straight perpendicular cut through the sewer pipes at both marks, using a hacksaw. Remove the trap. Scrape off all plastic burrs from the cut pipe ends with a utility knife.
Subsequently, question is, how do I unscrew a PVC pipe under the sink? If it's plastic, you can often do this by hand; if it is metal or difficult to turn, use a pipe wrench or adjustable pliers. Loosen the swivel nut at the opposite end of the "P," either by hand or with a wrench or pliers. When the nut is disengaged, lower the curved section of pipe and disengage it from the tailpiece.
how do I fix my P trap?
When the water in the P-trap evaporates, sewer gas can leak straight into your home. Fortunately, there's an easy fix to this problem: just fill the P-trap with water again. To do this, walk around your home with a pitcher of water and pour water down every drain you can find.
How do you remove the P trap from a bathroom sink?
Unscrew the nuts holding a plastic P-trap by hand, gripping the trap firmly with one hand and rotating each nut counterclockwise. You must unscrew two nuts to remove the trap. One holds the trap to the tailpiece, the small length of pipe extending down from the sink, and the other holds the trap to the drain line.
