Their water supply & drain trap needed?

pbx2_gwAugust 10, 2012

We're looking to install THIS Restoration Hardware Pedestal Sink in our new build's powder room.

The water supply valves & hidden drain traps aren't important to us as the actual pedestal.

Can those 2 components be supplied by some universal parts from Lowe's or Home Depot? Or are they proprietary to this pedestal?

Trying to stay away from the RH's $300+ valves & drain traps kit.

The bowl and pedestal are usually matched, ad the size and placement of the contact area between them is far form uniform among manufacturers.

They are not interchangeable pieces.

Sorry should have written more clearly: do you think I can use universal pipes ,drain, & valves for this pedestal?

You need a standard 1-1/4" P-Trap, two chrome plated angle stops and two chrome plated 3'8" supply tubes.

You could order the expensive parts from the manufacturer and pay $40 or $50 bucks for their name on it, or you can buy generic off the shelf at any hardware for under $20.

Once its installed no one can read the name on it anyway so I would strongly encourage you to get the generic.

@lazypup - you stated exactly I wanted to hear.
Generic parts will fit.

btw - their parts are $350 - thus the OP.

Thanks again.

Funny how the second photo of the sink (oblique view) omits the plumbing entirely (drain and supplies) to get that sleeker look.

Just make sure the drain pop-up lever is brass ad not steel.

HD had steel ones that OP used in the house.

It rusted out (of course) in short order.

They also seem unable to design a pop-up that can be removed without taking things apart underneath
