    Default Shower trap install?

    In the attached photos what kind of fittings would I need to attach a plastic trap that should pass code to the shower drain? I wont to start with plastic at the loose connection.

    Default drain

    1. It appears to be a bathtub drain not a shower.
    2. You not only have a drum trap, but it is installed as an "S" trap.
    3. As it sits, there is no way to make it legal or acceptable, because there is no vent, and any trap you install will automatically become an "S" trap, subject to all the problems that causes.
    4. This is not a DIY job, and even a plumber could have problems installing it correctly.

    Thanks for the fast reply. My situation is the trap is plunged up and in trying to remove the clean out plug with no luck the part in the photo come loose just like you see it. No nut farrow or anything I guess just sitting with putty for the least 20 years +. What will I need to fix that connection?

    Most likely the end of that brass tube you see USED to be threaded. It snapped of at the root of the thread....the broken part is still inside the tee. You have a bit of work cut out for yourself here.
