    I'm installing a new Schedule 40 Bath Drain with no instructions on a new Sterling 7112 tub.

    According to the supplied materials I have the parts installed in the following order (bottom up):
    1. plastic drain
    2. rubber gasket
    3. Tub
    4. Strainer


    The instructions I been able to find are for cast iron tubs and show using Plumbers Putty between the strainer and tub.

    Other instructions state to never use plumbers putty on a plastic/fiberglass tub. But, don't tell what if anything to use.

    Can anyone provide the recommended installation technique?

    thanks,
    BJR

    You can use Silicone RTV kitchen and bath caulk or, There is a new putty on the block that can be used...
