Brass Overflow/waste tail pipe to PVC
 
Hey guys,
I have a Brass Tub Waste/overflow 1-1/2" tail piece that I need to connect to a solvent pvc trap. Recommendations?

Rubber band type union?

Its all in a crawl space so there is access.

Thanks

They make them in male and female.

Use a PVC trap adapter- just like on a Ptrap connection. They're available with or without a hub

Id use a fernco rubber coupling on that. Too much dissimiliar movement between brass and plastic with temp swing.

Seriously? On a W&O assembly? Do you use them on tubular brass lav traps joined to plastic plumbing systems?

Just posting a possible concern. Im not a professional Plumber like you. I assume you are referring to thin wall brass vis a vis the breeze clamp?

I do know that brass moves at a much different rate than plastic, but defer to the pros here, if it is known to perform. I have never had much long term luck with those Nylon integral washers.
