Floor Tubes — Installation Instructions


1-1/4" x 20-1/2" Drain Tube 20-1/2" length

Recommended procedure for installation:
  1. Turn off water at the tap.
  2. Remove old trap.
  3. Remove nuts and washers A, B, C and D from J Bend.
  4. Salide nut D the length of drain tube before attaching tube to stub-out or floor connection.
  5. Slide flange over drain tube.
  6. Connect drain tube to waste line through floor. NOTE: For new installations, make sure you have the proper adapter in drain line to accept floor tube.
  7. Slip washer C on drain tube.
  8. Put nut A and washer B on tailpiece.
  9. Position J Bend. Hand-tighten nut A on tailpiece and nut D on drain tube to J Bend.
  10. Align parts. Tighten with wrench. Run water to test for leaks. Slide flange to floor.

Installation hints:
  1. Since it traps items that may fall into the drain and blocks gases from the waste drain system, water and dirt will be present in the existing trap. Place a bucket under the old trap before attempting to remove it.
  2. Put thread sealant tape on the drain threads before attaching nuts. This will provide a better seal against leaks.
  3. Use a scrap of cloth to protect the chrome finish on the nuts when you tighten with a pipe wrench.
