Tub drain removal


It's our only shower so I cut it with a reciprocating saw. I need to try and get this finished today. Crazy part is the drum trap pipes are all corroded but now that I can see down the rest of the pipe it's practically new looking inside. The drain key I got from menards was also to small so I just cut the old flange out.

Tub drain removal


All done no leaks. Most frustrating part was where the drain y met the p trap. I had to cut a piece of pipe to just meet the hubs because of the height of the drain pipe. I did notice the old drum trap pretty much had the same thing it was just slight deeper so the pipe out of the drain y was about 3/8 between the hubs.

Nice job replacing the drum. Worked a property that had 543 of those pitas.
Still have about 10 caps somewhere in my truck.
