    Question Solvent Weld vs No Caulk

    I was wondering which solution would be best for my situations.

    I am installing an acrylic corner shower (base and walls) from Maxx. The bathroom is on the second floor above my family room.

    Should I use a solvent weld shower drain or a no-caulk shower drain, and why?

    Thanks
    Mark

    If you have access from a ceiling below, I prefer a solvent weld. If this is on a slab or otherwise does not have access, then you will need the no-caulk.

    I prefer a glue drain in either instance...just MAKE SURE you get one that you can unscrew the drain after installation in case you have a leak...then tyou can screw it out...re putty and re install...

    actually this is one of the few times I might use silicone over putty.....
