I just started a 1/2 bath semi-renovation upgrade, and after removing the vanity and bowl to install a nice pedestal sink my wife and I really like, I noticed that I am unable to anchor the sink as the manufacturer recommends (2X6 between the wall studs) due to the fact that the contractor installed the drain line running vertically in the same wall space, and I can’t install the horizontal 2by. Also, one of the holes in the sink for the anchor studs will hit dead center on the existing vertical drain pvc pipe. Also, the existing waste line is 2″ low tee’d off the vertical drain line. I’m in a pickle and wonder if there are suitable methods to anchor the sink. The pedestal bears most the weight of the sink and I know the anchor is there too keep the sink from pulling away from the wall if someone leans on the front edge of the sink. Any suggestions?
