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.:confused:

Re: Bath tub Drain

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
