    Hey Fellas,

    So I am doing a bathroom remodel (DIY).

    I have completed Demo and removed the old shower tray. See Images. [​IMG] [​IMG] The PVC pipe is a bit weathered. I was told that I will want to replace a new PVC pipe since I want the connection to be leak free and a weathered pipe, like the one shown below, won't be a smooth seal. [​IMG]

    I have a two part question, do I need to replace the PVC to ensure a leak free seal? People live below me so I can't have this leak. It has to be done right, the first time.

    Also, Is it normal for the PVC at the trap assemble to move up and down a bit? Or was it to be sealed and glued also at initial installation (20 years ago)? Right now, I could lift it out of place if I wanted to. I didn't know if that was normal or not? Bascially what I'm asking is shouldn't the PVC at the trap assembly be glued also, that the ability for me to lift it up and down currently is wrong. The drain assembly was glued really well.
