Freestanding Tub w/o Overflow Installation Help
We have a freestanding tub that does not have an overflow -- as is true of a lot of freestanding tubs these days. Our plumber, however, is unsure about what drain to use to install it. Has anyone here installed such a tub? If so, any advice?
Installation instructions are of little help. Internet searches turn up references to "straight shoes" and "straight drains." Some also say that this sort of installation requires access from below -- which would be possible if necessary.
Finally, I'm wondering if the best option would be using a stopper instead of a lift-and-turn or toe kick drain, because that would make it easier to clean the drain if need be. We will be using the tub primarily for soaking after a long day or gardening, so it won't be used everyday.
Thanks in advance.
