Bathroom remodeling


See picture below, I'm not that much of a drawer but looking the the fitting used on this assembly, you have the overflow and the drain no tee comes with kit, If you take the drain and turn it one direction or the other to get beyond a joist, now with the overflow part, trun it on the horizontal at 90 or on a 45 degree, now the tee you see here will always stay vertical, all you need to do now is cut to fit the pipe inbetween the parts.

Prime and glue, let prime dry a few secs then glue.

I think you can get shorter section of pipe at HD, 5, 10, or 20ft sections, all parts will be PVC.

Okay Ron, the whirlpool I am going to purchase states to buy the over flow drain assembly and its $90.00 and I belive its brass. Do I use the one recommended by the whirlpool tub, or can I get this in pvc, didn't see it at HD. Also, I see what you mean, but if I turn the drain pipe a little to get by the joist, then when I turn the overflow assembly pipe, which is running perpendicular to the joist as well, the tee of this assembly will not be vertical, it will be on a slant. Also where does the p trap come in on this? Thanks, I have a gut feeling with your help I am going to do this right!

You do not need to use there W/O assembly, if you need a type of finish that HD does not have then you will need to order it.

To keep the tee vertical all you have to do is add a 90 or a 45 el off the overflow part, this is why you will rotate the overflow part to allow you to use said fitting/s. If you turn it on a 45 then use a 45 el to bring it back to vertical, if you turn the overflow it a 90 then use a 90 to bring it back to vertical.

Get the fittings and dry fit, it will look right when you see it.

Remember you are cutting the pipes to lenght so you can set the tee at what ever spot you need it to be.

If that assembly is all brass, then no you can not convert it, it will take the tip toe assemble for this to work.


Sample drawing of what it can look like

Okay Ron, NOW for the magic question!!!!! How hard is this to do when the wet wall is an outside wall?? Will I have to get a left hand drain tub, and reroute the water to the other side of the wall?? I was planning on putting the tub against the outside wall since the stack (cast iron pipe) is on that end. I would not have access to the back, and I beleive this will be a problem in the future, if I will ever have to do any work. Its your call, your the plumber, I'm the helpless!!! Thanks

Pictures would sure help right now, moving the drain and water to other wall is more involved then you will want to get into, code calls for a vent to be within a short distance from a trap, what your asking to do will require you to change the vent location also, there is always a problem somewhere, if at all possible keep the plumbing in the same locations.

Hi Ron, got you pictures today. I understand what you mean, but it just hit me if I do that there will be no way to install the tub drain stopper since the pipes will be in an angle. I just need to know if I should do a left hand tub instead. This way I will have acess to the plumbing on the back side thru the room with an access door, what you thing? The tub was orginally on left side, or should I say it was a left hand drain. The only probem would be getting the water lines to the other end, it is vey hard to solder at the corner, no room what so ever. They had used flexible copper piping for all the water lines in this house. Let me know what you think would be best, didn't pick up the tub today, had a big headache do the stress, lol.. How can I send you the photos? Let me know, thanks.

This is why I said use a tip-toe assembly as seen in the picture i posted, where stopper is on the drain of the tub. This style of stopper has no lift rods to worry about so you can make up the drain so it can work.
