    Installing a new tub. The old tub had ABS slip fittings and a trip lever style stopper. There was no access panel. I would like to keep the trip lever style of drain in the new tub.

    Bathtub overflow doesn't do its job, AquaCanada

    Hi there peeps! I had the bathtub position relocated (brand new plumbing except for the column) and a brand new free standing bathtub installed.

    Bath tub drain assembly and how to replace it.

    I would like to remove my old drain basket and replace it with a new one. However, it doesn’t appear to by a typical drain with the crossbars. I’m afraid to torque on it and mess it up or find out it’s not threaded etc. has anyone had experience removing this trip of drain?

    The last element to plumb in my basement bath/laundry remodel is the bathtub drain. Like pretty much everything else, it was done poorly (or outright incorrectly!) when the house was built. The photo shows the plumbing that I’ve done in the hole that was already there. It wasn’t vented...

    Let me apologize in advance... I have a tendency to write long posts and I'm pretty sure this one will be no exception. About a week and a half ago, I noticed a dripping sound between the common wall for my master bathroom and guest bathroom (which we never use because the toilet needs to be...

    Bathtub drain not connected to drain pipe; bathwater draining into foundation

    Hello. We bought a small single-story house in San Diego last year (built in 1970), and there was a mildew smell in the master bedroom/bathroom area. The exhaust fan in the bathroom was broken so we thought that this was the cause of the mildew. The house inspection didn't turn up anything...

    P Trap Too Close to Joist

    Hi Everyone; I'm hoping you can give me some suggestions on how to handle this problem. I'm installing a new tub. The tub requires 14 1/4" from the wall to the drain. The original drain was about 13 1/2 inches from the wall. My thought was that I would cut the copper drain pipe...

    I am a newbie doing a bath remodel and new tub installation. Question whether flexible PVC drain/overflow would be a good way to go in installing a new tub. Seems to be the easiest way to go in getting a good, easy fit, but is this durable and long lasting? We also plan to replace the Ptrap.
