3Trombley:

Let's refer to the picture in Handyguy's post.

My understanding of what you're saying is that the P-trap you have would fit better if the radius of curvature of the "U" (where water is retained) were larger.

Instead of making the "U" wider, would using an offset tail piece like the one shown below solve the problem?



Offset tailpieces are used under sinks in hospitals and nursing homes so that someone in a wheelchair won't bang their knees into the p-trap when using the sink.
