  • American Standard - not so standard?

    Got an American Standard fiberglass clawfoot tub (fairly new) but the drain and overflow that was attached.... is neither 1 1/4 or 1 1/2... it's somewhere between the two. I need a tee and a straight plus the PVC adapter... and with a chrome finish. Anyone seen this before?

    You probably have 1 1/2 tubular pipe you may need a 1 1/2 trap adapter

        Yep I have and you need to head on over to a plumbing supply store for what you need. Cheeepo Deepot and Blowes won't have it.

            Recommend any? Ferguson Plumbing Supply doesn't have a clue what it is.

              Too small for a 1 1/2 adapter..

                Every clawfoot I ever installed was 1-1/2" tubular on the drains. If that is not what you have, then why not get a new drain set that is of standard size?

                  I have a hard time swallowing a $300 tab to replace something I already have...

                    A. We offer a 1 1/2" x 1 3/8" chrome slip joint nut along with a D style o-ring that will fit onto the 1 3/8" o.d. tubing. Simply order the slip joint nut and d-ring above which includes both the special reducing nut and the special o-ring.
