Acceptable Tub Drain Configuration?


Could you post a pic with the drain assembly positioned in the hole and connected to the waste arm? It might help the visualization.

Trap seal defined
Thanks for the image. Regarding the question about 45 on the waste arm, I am unable to do so. I have to use the 90 to gain enough space to center the drain. With the 45 into the U, the water seal is just about 4". Is that acceptable?

I'm wondering if you put a 45 on the waste arm and add a section of pipe. Spin the trap so that it would be under the tub shoe. Connect it to the waste arm with 2 angled fittings. Only concern would be slope and maybe vent.
