Leaking Shower Drain - Screw Gasket


I don't think mine is the standard "no-calking" gasket from Oatey. The original gasket seems to be threaded on both the inside and outside (maybe a result of being in the drain for 10 years?) and is also thicker. The new ones all seem to have a compression ring (far right of image) that expands the gasket. Mine has no compression/calking ring.

Yeah, I have lots of cleanup to do on this pipe. It seems like it was almost melted off rather than cut. Would you recommend anything on the gasket (silicone/putty) or will it seal by itself? Will let you know how things go.
they have inside pipe cutters..i think 12-15 dollars..

Just to confirm, there is a difference between the gaskets correct? Mine seems to be larger and seal by its size. The new ones seem to have a "calking ring" that screws in on top of the gasket to flatten it out. This won't work and I'll have to find the old style with no ring.

Wrong gasket--sorry---You may have to make some calls --that is a compression gasket--you need a barbed gasket----

That pipe was hacked off with a dull saws all blade---you need to trim that back and clean it up--

You can still get those gaskets as I did get one a few months back ---plumber poured in lead instead of using the gasket---failure--

Any suggestions on where to get one? Seems Lowes and Home Depot all have the compression ones with the ring.

Any idea what the difference is from PSD-210. I found a PSD-210 local, but will have to get the PSD-200 online. I'm not really in a hurry, so if the 200 is preferred, I can wait for online delivery.

It seems that 210 is "For Mustee or Owens Corning 1 piece molded shower base" while 200 is "For American brass and Aluminum, Armstrong, Casper, Garvin, Intercon and Kohler".

Looks like online order it is. By the way, I found them on Amazon for $3.80 + $3.80 shipping.

Leaking Shower Drain - Screw Gasket


Finally received the gasket from Amazon and it's not the right one. Easily fits around the pipe and installed simply by hand. It doesn't have enough width to properly compress against the drain body and the watery freely runs between the outside of the gasket and the drain body.

I guess only option now is to try the Wing Tite drain or tear into the ceiling below to access the bottom of the drain?

Has anyone used the Wing Tite before? I'm not sure I understand how I cut out the old drain with only top access... what happens to the nut on the bottom? It just falls down the pipe?

Looking like I may just have to call a plumber, although they may have to cut into the ceiling anyway...
