Question about Water Heaters
Hello, First you'll have to remove the existing glued trap adapter from the drain pipe, just behind the P-trap. You may have to cut this off with a hand-held hacksaw to keep as much of the drain pipe going into the wall, as possible. You may have to open up the wall to get more access to the drain pipe, if possible. Each installation has it's own issues, depending on where and how it was installed to begin with.
Then you'll have to add a glue to threaded adapter to the drain pipe (at the wall). That will allow you to screw on the waterless brass flange to the PVC pipe (with the new threaded adapter.
I'm not certain as to what the diameter of the drain pipe you've got going into the wall, but you can always get the correct adapter for joining the pipe to the brass flange in your kit.
Here is a link to a brass flange for a waterless urinal that should be similar to what you're using. Basically, you just need to make sure the clearance and measurements of the rough-in meets the specs for the new urinal that you're installing. So double check everything before you glue the threaded adapter on and dry fit the pieces first, so you have the ability to make any changes that might be needed to accomplish your retrofit.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
