    I have a metal drain pipe with threads on the outside coming out of the wall behind a bathroom sink. The pipe that connected to this broke, so I need to replace the trap and find a way to connect to the drain pipe. The threads on the outside of the 1 1/2" drain pipe seem fine, but it only sticks out from the wall about a 1/4".

    What do I need to connect to the old metal drain pipe? Thanks for any help.

    Do I need to put anything like Teflon tape on the threads of the metal drain pipe to keep it from leaking with the new trap adapter on it?

    Yeah some teflon or pipe dope with teflon. Be careful not to split the fitting when you tighten it.
