Maybe a dumb question, but.........
......since I'm a DIY'er, I 'd like to know which set up is better, if there is one.
On the connection between a brass tub drain and the plastic P trap, what would you prefer. Its a brass drain going to plasic trap.
1) Use the supplied brass tailpiece screwed into the drain, and use a plastic slipnut and washer on the other end. Or,
2) Use a plastic tailpiece with 2 plastic washers and nuts,threading it to the outer threads of the drain T.
Seems to me that the plastic washer and nut doesn't hold the brass as tight as it would a plastic tailpiece. Are rubber washers only used when the nut and pipe are metal? That is,You cant use a metal and rubber gasket on a plastic pipe being connected to plastic threads??? Thanks
