    Hi,
    If i were to replace a cast tub with a like kind, is it likely I would NOT have to replace the drain/trap? Just set the new tub down on a new gasket? The current setup is all brass, I think.

    Thank you

    It is almost inconceivable that ANY new tub would have the same dimensions as the old one, unless it was the exact same make and model.
