Ideas on moving a bath Tub drain for new tub
 
I have a new problem with installation of new tub - the drain & overflow need to be moved approximately 1-inch over to match the new tub installation
Is there a semi-simple way to do this?
What are some options?
It is on the second floor of house and has wood sub-floor

Cut and adjust yout ABS/PVC an inch over.

MTN - don't totally understand your response
My drain is more than likely original w/ house (50 years old) it's not ABS / PVC and had planned to use a new brass drain and overflow unit to replace existing

I believe what he meant was the simplest way is to start cutting your pipes to relocate them to where your drain on the new tub is.

No simple way other than finding a tub with the holes in the exact same place which is not likely to happen.

Oiler.... As Pugsy explained/said.... all you can do is relocate your drainage.... ASSUMING you can't relocate the tub....

But, there is no magic trick per se to make water jump an inch unless it is in pipe......

If you can tell everyone 1) What you have (like type existing pipe, slab or any access to the tub plumbing 2) what you want to do.... all specifically with dimensions, maybe pictures.....

alot of experienced and creative guys here that will try to give you their best ideas....

I think there was little response, because basically there was no information...

Best

I would cut back on the pipe to drain side then off set with 22 1/2 s.. a picture of what you have will let me tell you what connectors you need..:yes::thumbsup:

I have taken advice and am in process of moving drain
I will attempt to get photos attached and additional information soon for more assistance
NEW question is that I purchased a new tub and drain assembly but have not seen a gasket included - question is it standard to have a gasket on the underside of tub where the bath drain and the floor drain are connected??

never mind on last question - I reviewed instructions and there is a gasket showing to be installed however I do not see one in box of parts do you think I can find a comparable gasket at big box store?

Look again. They have a way of actually being there between parts and are often just overlooked. I would imagine the box stores would have them. If not, they'll try to make you buy a whole new drain. :mad:
