    Default Bath tub Drain

    Looking for advice on replacing a bath drain that is corroded, do iI have to pull the tub to do this? Any suggestions welcome.

    It is easy to do without pulling the tub, if you have access via the floor below or a closet at the drain end of the tub. If no access is available this would be a good time to install one. Panels that can be painted or papered are available in a number of different sizes. Modern tub drains are 1-1/2" in size and you have many options, but take a look at the toe touch PVC drains. It is not a hard job to do...manuvering is the hard part. If you need step by step instructions it might be a good job for a plumber.

    In some instances you can replace it by going through the water wall in others you have to go at it from below which means cutting a hole in the ceiling if the tub is on the second floor. This is what a typical plastic replacement unit looks like
