Hi I'm replacing the floor in my bathroom and will have a new surface about 1" higher after underlayment and tiles. The claw foot tub drain assembly will have to be replaced as well. Question: is a replacement assembly kit (i.e. home depot) work or will this be a custom situation since the floor level will be different? Pipes are 1.5" outside diameter. Thanks in advance.
Your opening up a can of worm if you try and change that whole drain that's attached to the tub.
That looks like it's been on there at least 50 years.
An issue you may run into where the pipe comes up from the floor may or may not be long enough to be able to tighten up that tee again.
May have to go below the floor loosen up the nut and slide out the pipe to install a longer one.
You are going to replace all that old copper pipe and rerun it so it's not all sloped like that right?
Thanks Joecaption, but plans have changed a bit. Once I remove the currnent layers of linoleum and other shmutz underneath, I can install a thin subfloor and a vynil flooring system that will about match the current thickness, so the drain issue will hopefully not be insurmountable. To heck with the 1/2" plywood, cementboard, and tiles!
And yes, I will be replacing the input lines as well.
