      I would like to know your opinion on concealed slip-joints for a waste and overflow for tubs.What are the code requirements for this in your area. Can I install a traditional type waste with slip-joints and conceal it? I look forward to your response.

Normally on Bathtub wastes for example the shoe and overflow are connected to a SJ tee. Depending on the Gauge of the metal may have alot to do with Code approval.As far as I know ONLY the bathtub fixture uses SJ connections. Great question

Great questionI am presently using the 1994 Standard plumbing code.It requires a straight-thru type tub waste when the waste is going to be concealed. However the code is not very clear on concealing the slip-joints with slip-nuts on this matter. I mainly see PVC tub waste in my area ond this would require concealing the slip-nut joints. Is this allowed in your area?
