Installing new plumbing and keeping old tub.. I noticed inside the ABS tub foot that there is a plastic baffle. It looks like the pipe extending downward and leaving about the bottom half of the shoe clear for water passage.
Does anyone understand the purpose for this and have time to explain..
Thanks in advance..
Also, when attaching to the foot, the pipe tends to want to slope upward but I am guessing this is just symptomatic of an old house with lots of settlement issues.. So I adjusted with a downward pitch during glue. Hope I did the right thing..
And finally, the foot is black, stamped ABS, and says use silicon caulk only. I used plumbers putty to seal the top part of the drain, rubber gasket on the bottom.. Does plumbers putty react with ABS?
