|In response to Re: Clawfoot tub drain configuration|
As stated, the beam is perpendicular to the tub, not parallel. The only way to move the tub to the desired position is to move the floor-level output toward the head of the tub somehow. So a 3-way won't help.
: If the beam is parallel to the tub then it should also be under the drain opening in the tub. There are several drain configurations and the one you want would be a "3 way elbow" at the bottom of the overflow with the outlet coming out the side with a bent tube dropping into your trap. They are called "side outlet" waste and overflows and you may have to do an Internet search for it. I think I found my last one at a company in Kansas, Missouri, or somewhere in that region.
: : Well, the drain line and P-trap are in, running right up to the beam, because I can't see how I could improve the situation under the floor. But...
: : Is there any reason that I should not put the hole in the floor midway between the overflow and the tub drain, or even directly under the tub drain? If so, should the T be of a special design? (I'm thinking of the assemblies for 2-drain sinks where the T has a baffle inside.)
: : As far as I can tell, no one makes a tail piece for the tub drain that would allow the "under drain" option. But I'm pretty sure I could construct the "midway" option in the space between the tub bottom and the floor.
