Slip Joint on Bathtub p-trap


Hello,

for a new bathtub that came with a PVC drain + overflow assembly, which I need to connect to ABS piping, can I use a P-trap with a slip-joint (as seen below)? I would rather use this trap, than gluing it with ABS/PVC cement, as it allows servicing the p-trap more easily down the road due to screwed connections on trap inlet and outlet.
The tub would connect to the slip-joint side of the p-trap. It is a 2" trap in case you need this info.
Location is CA.

If the fitting is accessible after the installation--then YES---

If you can't get to the trap it must be a glue up

Thanks for the response. Just to clarify, if it is accessible, CAN it be screwed, or does it HAVE to be screwed?

The picture is of a 1 1/2" trap, not 2".

I just don't like them because if you ever have to rod it you will mess up the seal flange and it will leak. I'm talking the LA nut trap. The MIP is fine.
