Installing shower drain to old cast iron tub drain
Posted by Jason Colbert on February 01, 19100 at 11:45:07:
We are remodeling a bathroom and are replacing the old tub with a tile shower. The house is 40 years old and has cast iron drains where the tub drain is located. The house is a slab foundation so it is difficult to move anything. I need to install a 2" drain for the shower pan, but am not sure the best way to connect it to the old cast iron. Right now it has a 1 1/2" galvanized pipe inserted into the cast iron drain, with I think Oakum and Lead for a seal. Should I remove that and install a new pipe, Oakum and Lead. Is there a better way?

thanks for the help.
