  • Drum Trap Cover Preference

    Assuming the threads on the drum trap have seen better days, what do you prefer... a Sioux Chief Mechanical Test Plug Test Titan OR do you prefer a "lead fits-all" clean out plug in order to get the best seal? Thanks!

    Re: Drum Trap Cover Preference

    I do own a 3" tap that I try to save the threads with and use a proper threaded plug. If the threads cannot be saved, I prefer to cut out a drum trap that has bad threads and replace it with a P-trap if space permits, if space does not permit, then a new drum trap.

      Neither. I do the same as what ron said. One time I had one on the 4th floor of an apartment building and buried in the flexicore deck. Obviously, it was not coming out.Couldn't get any kind of a wrench on the tap (between the toilet and tub) I used silicone to caulk the edge too.

          Good temporary fix for the customer until it can be cut out or repaired properly. Or if you have to reschedule the replacement. Thanks, I'm going to make sure I have one on the truck tomorrow. I normally don't fix them, cut them out every chance I get and replace with a normal pvc trap.
