    Hello everyone,

    I'm wondering if someone could help me identify what this fitting is. The tub drain pipe
    and overflow pipe join together via a T fitting and then into this fitting. Then the pipe exits
    the fitting and presumably exits to the basement. The house is old so there is no P trap.

    I currently have a back up into the tub and I'm wondering if this is a trap that can be cleaned
    out. I ran some hot water down the tub and felt warm pipes up until this fitting, but not after.

    Any information would be helpful. Thanks!

    -Tony

    It appears to be some sort of drum trap, but you do not show enough of the installation for us to determine how it is connected to the tub.
