          Only kind of but you have to replace the slip-joint washers with brass ferrels.

            Not here but even if it was, it wouldn't be a good idea.

              as mark mentioned. we would install bathtub waste and overflows with brass slip joint nuts, and brass ferrules on 17 gauge r.b. tubing.

              the ferrule was an accepted method of joining and didn't require access. i preferred the 1/2 ferrule or the good old days of the soft lead ferrules.

              still have lead in the shed

                Is that like the old saying "lead in the pencil?"

                  Re: more code

                  the only reason i ask is because i made an access panel to the pipes for my upstairs tub and as i opened up the floor i found that the trap and everything was threaded together. there was no access prior to what i did. my condo complex was finished in 88 and is all piped with ABS. so this isnt supposed to be at all???

                    Buried (hidden) nuts are outlawed in NJ.

                    The squirrels are protesting but it is doing little good.

                            A bunch of people have basically told you that non-accessible slip joints with nuts are against most codes.

                            Why are you asking?

                              We didn't mean to confuse you but when the slip joint washer is replaced with a brass ferrule it is no longer a slip joint fitting it becomes a mechanical fitting.
