Bathroom sink drain

My bathroom sink drain broke off from the pipe behind the wall. The pipe behind the wall has a large nut on it about 2 1/4" and I can't remove it. Even if I did remove it, I wouldn't know what to do then. I want to replace it with a plastic drain but I don't know how to proceed.


Re: Bathroom sink drain

Having had some unfortunate experience with this exact issue, I would advise to call in a plumber. Older pipes like this can be so brittle that messing with them too much will cause further breakage behind the wall.

Others might have some better advice here, but from my personal experience with this one, it's best to just break down and hire a pro.
