    Default Free standing basin style bathtub with no access to connect drain tail pipe trap

    Hello.

    I've found many answers from this forum over the years so my thanks to all posters. This is my first time posting a question.

    I'm installing a free standing basin style bathtub. The abs drain/trap has been roughed in. The bathroom floor is finished/tiled and the room below the bathroom has a decorative ceiling and I was asked not to cut an access through it. Therefore, once the tub is in place there is no access to connect the drain (no access to tighten the trap adapter). Are there trap adapters that are friction fit using o-rings vs the common compression fit screw to tighten?

    Thanks in advanced

    You use a solvent weld trap and glue it up as you roll the tub into place. This is why you have to make sure everything is right the first time, because it's a one-shot deal.
