Plumbing and drain


Is it acceptable to have the hot and cold pipes touching one another?

Can I install the tub drain on an angle?

No ..You can however put a protective plastic sleeve(insulator) between them, as long as the two are not touching physically.

Well i do have the pile insulation but I'm not sure why it's a problem. Yes the junction box is a mess, I didn't do it, it's Gunna be looked after.

Thx...

So, essentially if I use some insulation I'm ok? Why is it a problem if they touch?

For one thing they will expand and contract at differant rates and make make a noise.
Any two pipes touching like that can make sounds when the water starts and stops.
