    Default Installing new Schedule 40 Bath Drain

    I'm installing a new Schedule 40 Bath Drain with no instructions on a new Sterling 7112 tub.

    According to the supplied materials I have the parts installed in the following order (bottom up):
    1. plastic drain
    2. rubber gasket
    3. Tub
    4. Strainer


    The instructions I been able to find are for cast iron tubs and show using Plumbers Putty between the strainer and tub.

    Other instructions state to never use plumbers putty on a plastic/fiberglass tub. But, don't tell what if anything to use.

    Can anyone provide the recommended installation technique?

    thanks,
    BJR
