What to do with drum trap
I am doing a minor bath remodel/redecorate, getting a new tub as part of it. We need to route our new plumbing around the aged drum trap. The floor is original (1930s) hex tile and we are keeping it. But the corroded drum trap top is very visible, between the tub and toilet in the floor.
I don't know if we can remove the old drum trap and replace the hole with tile without having it look obviously like a patch. I don't know if after the plumber demos it (it is all fused together, the lid and the trap) if we can just get a clean chrome top and that will be an improvement.
How have others handled the visible top of the drum trap during a remodel which leaves the floor intact?
