I had the pleasure of installing one of those exact ikea drains on an ikea vanity. Worst ever. Oh yeah and look at how the top tee looking part goes over to a 90° strainer shoe. See how it is 2 different parts? It's not even round but oval and and those 2 parts are sliding adjustable with an O-ring inside and feels very loose. This one looks like there are plenty of room. The vanity I did had maybe a 4" channel built in to the drawers so drain had to be spot on and no room for water in that area so water had to be behind the drawers and stop was all the way up against the wall and drawers still came to almost hit the stop. Nightmare and I advise everyone here slow or not to always run away from such a job.

I've done several, It is tough, I had the displeasure of a double vanity with fooking drawers. I had to lirerally hack the darn pipes because the homeowner punched the drain holes before I got there, their kit doesn't have enough pipe. Then It was a nightmare to run pex in there too. Waiver time!

Nope, the drawers are in the way and most times the pipes in the wall have to be relocated. Most people call someone else because they think its a 30$ job. They buy a 99$ vanity so the plumber should be half that right? Parts they think it grows on trees and they are free.

No one is going to pay me to try and find really tight bend chrome and pay 350$ just for that.

If you look they have proprietary overflow it won't fit on anything else, it won't be long before they phase them out, the province put up a page to file complaints on illegal fittings. Ikea, HD, Rona, Canadian tire are going to be fined up the wazzoo by the government.

What I'm working on now. Customer at this restaurant said water keeps coming out from behind the wall but it's not constantly flowing. It gets worse when the men's bathroom is used.

Poured some dye and noticed it when the urinal was done.

As you can see the copper is just a little bit corroded, haha. Customer said he poured draino down the urinal on a regular basis to keep it clean.

Not as epic as yours but here is my copper repair last week. The winner in this job I already posted earlier...

I've seen this a few times when I was working at a big box store. Every once in a while you'd get someone exclaiming that very picture of exploding $hit all over the walls in the men's stall. Yep a splatter bomb, I could never figure it out WTF!
