I am a newbie doing a bath remodel and new tub installation. Question whether flexible PVC drain/overflow would be a good way to go in installing a new tub. Seems to be the easiest way to go in getting a good, easy fit, but is this durable and long lasting? We also plan to replace the Ptrap.

Watco makes some tub drains with a flex pipe. It should be fine.
