    Default New Tub & Drain Assembly

    Hello All,

    I'm doing a bathroom remodel, which includes replacing the tub old tub that was in the bathroom with an Aquatic Symphony 9. I was limited to this tub due to the size of the alcove, however, it is a nice soaking tub. I have a Lada Ld-10103 Trip Lever Waste and Overflow waste kit. My question at this point is rather simple. When fitting the brass components together with slip nuts, do I use plumber's putty or tape? What about when the waste portion of the brass pipe fits into the plastic pvc ptrap?

    Thanks for the help. This is my first bathtub, and I want to make sure I get it right without destroying my kitchen below.

    -Bill

    You should have either plastic or rubber washers that go inside the slip joint nuts.

    thanks for the help. I just wanted to make sure nothing else was required outside of the washers.

    The washers are directional, and if installed backwards, will leak. Other than that, they work well.

    use a teflon based dope on the slip joint washers. Plumbers puddy under the strainer.
