In response to Re: Connecting New Bath Drain
: Hello,

: 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?

: Thanks,

If the original tub was run correctly, you should be able to do as you propose. You will need a no hub coupling that will connect copper DWV to PVC. This is probably a plumbing supply house item. You can then use a 45 or 22-1/2 (whichever works) to line up with your new tub p-trap.
