Can I Modify Tub Drain / Overflow Assembly?
Posted by Dan on May 09, 2002 at 13:56:21:
I'm about to install a whirlpool tub in place of a regular tub. The problem is that the drain/P-trap will be off by about 3" because the whirlpool is slightly larger. The bath is on the second floor, and I would prefer not to disturb the existing trap. I can get the drain to connect, but can I modify the overflow piping by using (2) 45's to get to the drain? The integral stopper may be the problem since it won't drop straight down...can I add an extra 'link'?
