Connecting New Bath Drain
Posted by David Morello on May 01, 2003 at 20:20:48:

I'm installing a new whirlpool tub and need advice on how to plumb the drain line. My existing drain pipe is copper and about 4 inches to the right of where I need it. I think I can bridge the gap if I cup the copper drain pipe a few inches back and use PVC to get over to the new tub drain. Is it okay to create a PVC extension and connect the existing copper to the PVC fittings supplied with my tub? If not, how do I make the connection to my tub drain and overflow?
