Bathtub drain assembly can be a nightmare.
Tubs will leak if this project is done wrong.
So let’s do it right!
Bathtub Drain Assembly Done Right
First, always follow the bathtub directions – always.
For example, this tub drain assembly was done for a Delta acrylic tub. And the directions called for DAP 3.0 to be used between the drain and tub.
Second, get the correct size drain assembly based on the size of the tub. The drain kit in this tutorial fit tubs 12 to 24 inches in height.
Third, consider a cable drive drain assembly. These are easy to operate and won’t lead to clogs.
Finally, dry fit pipes before installing them. Also, get a PVC pipe cutter because they make cutting pipes fast and easy.
