My 16' scamp
sink drain broke at the barbed outlet to the waste water vinyl tubing. I purchased a new trap and also ordered a stainless bar sink drain as the original was pretty corroded. My problem is that the new trap is very loose on the new stainless drain threads. It really will not catch the threads until it is nearly all the way on the drain, and this means that there is not enough room for the nut that holds the drain in place. I'm thinking of installing the drain with silicone sealer on top side of the sink and installing the rubber compression washer under the sink and then using more silicone on the drain threads to seal the trap as I screw it up against the compression washer.
Here's my question. Is my solution for snugging the trap up against the compression washer without the compression nut a good one or should I look for better fitting trap and drain?
Thanks for any help, Tom
