T-shaped Tub Drain Exist?

I'm installing a jetted tub in my basement and I'm forced to install the drain-side of this tub away from the drain location by some distance due to needing access to the jet water pump. I would like to know if a fitting exists that would allow me to run the opposite direction of the typical overflow/drain combination. Everything would run along the length of the tub and then down into the drain rather than draining just beneath the overflow drain.

To summarize, I would like to attach to the overflow then extend down, turn 90 towards the tub drain then continue on to a roughed-in drain in the concrete ~4ft away.

I realize that I could set the tub high enough to get the normal drain rerouted but this would look awkward.

You can do an offset with all glue joints, but I think max distance by code is 30" but don't quote me on that.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
