  1. 6:00 – You have made an ‘s-trap’. This is wrong – it could siphon the water out of the trap. I’ve never tried a flex drain connection, but I’ve read that most plumbers will not install them as they hold dirt… Why do you have shut off valves under the tub/floor where you will never be able to use them?

  2. nice design…

  3. jeez…you arnt a plumber

  4. that flex drainline looks awful thin……JUNK

  5. We are having a problem with our hose leaking- where did you order another one from?

  6. What does it look like from the back, are all the pipes etc exposed?

  7. Not to be negative just here to help people watching learn. You are going to have issues with that flexible pipe running uphill. Tub will drain slower and leave water in the line after it drains. I know it’s harder and takes more planning , but you should always use hard pvc pipe that’s slopes downhill and not flexible line.

  8. Okay you’re making me cringe, take your teflon tape and wrap it around a pencil first. Then you won’t have that problem.

  9. But what if the foundation is a slab? I need help
