Default Manufacturs drain on free standing tub

Got a call for a leaking free standing tub.
Guy said another company installed it then came back to fix it so now i went there, cut the waterline fliped it over...seems like they cranked the $hit out if the brass tailpeice an curled the silicone gasket that comes with the tub. So i uses an rubber gasket from a waste an overflow kit to impervise. Tested it of course no leak.

Someone is going to say you better have used silicone and in this case I agree. Putty under the basket rim and silicone on both sides of the rubber gasket.




Good idea using an overflow gasket.

dam right skippy....I use silicone on all drains and never have a leak and you dont have to gorilla down to tighten and distort the gaskets, the silicone will fill in any voids and keep it from loosening with heat cool cycles...and in 20 years if someone has to take it apart then they can bltch about the use of silicone then...

If that’s a Neptune free standing tub I’ve and probably 4 or 5 of them with drain leaks. On those when they are going to be glued down to the floor I always silicone them. Silicones cheap leaks are expensive.
