How to install a standard compression shower drain
Posted by Jared on December 12, 2003 at 14:33:59:

I'm planning on installing a cultured marble shower with a pan. I'm told the pan is to placed over the drain and then a standard compression drain is to be installed.

My question is how does one install the compression drain? Does one simply just "drop" it in the hole in the pan and it fits into the main drain pipe. Is it secured in anyway to this pipe, i.e. like pvc cement?

It also seems like there should be something between the pan hole and the compression drain so it doesn't leak?
