Freestanding tub waste pipe ..


I purchased a freestanding tub and there is a flexible hose that attaches to the drain. The hose is similar to a washing machine or dishwasher waste hose.

Do I let this sit loose in my plumbing rough in in the floor?

Let me know if you need pictures?

I've seen a tub with a drain setup similar to what you are describing. It was one of those walk-in tubs and it had a dishwasher style hose that connected the overflow portion of the drain assembly to the waste portion of the assembly.

If the tub is currently installed, that hose should be connected to something.


If the tub isn't installed, usually the drain fittings for the tub aren't installed until it's time to set the tub.


Agree with Mike, however. I'd like to see a model # or something at the very least.

Strange there's so little info any where on the net on this tub.

Sorry, i'm a little confused at exactly what i'm looking at here. Which end is up? Maybe a wider picture in addition to the ones you posted already would help.

Thats the bottom of the tub, it's the drain. The metal hose connected to the drain goes to the overflow.

My question is more about the flex hose, The threaded end connects to the drain of the tub. How do I connect the flex hose from the drain to the abs plumbing? Is there a fitting for that like a dishwasher nipple?

I had a similar situation with a walk-in shower my wife wanted me to install. Some expensive foreign brand with a drain line setup like yours. It's been several years, but I think I used a slip nut coupling. That didn't work at first, because apparently the drain line fitting was metric! I don't think you can bury a slip fitting, but I didn't have that issue. But if I had to do it again, I'd figure a way to replace that flex drain with pvc.
