Rubber coupling...
Posted by Lee on March 24, 2003 at 13:16:02:
Hi Terry,

I am having my bathtub replaced and I was told that the drain trap has to be replaced too. The contracter told me since there is not that big room to work with (he punched a hold on the subfloor just over the trap.The trap is not directly under the tub.), he said he is using rubber coupling to connect a PVC trap to the branch.

My concern is how long will the PVC and the rubber coupling last before they have to be replaced again? 20 years, 30 years?

Thank you very much for your early reply.
