Hi Folks,

This site is great first off.

My question is, I'd like to replace the bathtub flange. I read several posts on this forum that talk about unscrewing it using some channel pliers and then screw it using the same process and applying some plumbers putty perhaps. Is that all that is required?

The one I am using right now is all tarnished and ugly. I don't currently have any leaks. Do I need to put some teflon tape before I screw the flange back on? I pressume it's screwed back on...

Thanks in advance for all the help. Keep up the great work.

The drain and the visible part you can see in the tub may not be generic so you may have problems without replacing the entire drain. See what the pros say...
