Tub drain question
Posted by Susan on October 12, 2002 at 23:59:24:
I am installing a new tub in a 1960's house. The drain kit is brass and has a 1.5" tail pipe. My question is can I use a PVC trap. The drain pipes in the wall are 1 1/2" copper. Would I be better of using all copper? Once installed the plumbing is not accessable. Also, on th fine thread of the tail pipe (where it screws into the T junction of the drain and the overflow) do I need pipe tape?

Thanks for the help.
