Installing new tub that's 2 inchs wider-what to do with drain?
The new tub is 32 wide and the old is 30 inches wide. ItÂs in a recessed area so can't move inward to center the drain. I can get at the drain from below; the present connection to the drain is one of those rubber fittings with stainless steel clamps on each end. Is my only and best solution to cut out the old PVC and reinstall one inch forward to center on the new drain. Don't know of any fitting that I can use to move the drain over, without cutting the PVC. Is there any thing available? I will have an access door under the drain after this remodel.
Are there drain fittings like you have under a sink that can be used or does the drain need to be a solid piece.
Can I also install shutoff valves under the floor since I can get at them through the access panel? The meter shutoff is a long way from the house.
