 Stacking tub shoe washer
Author: EatNSleep (Canada)

Hi all,. I am trying to replace the tub drain. When I removed the drain, I noticed that there appeared to be two gaskets between the bottom of the tub and the shoe. One I can remove easily but the other one (assuming that is indeed a gasket) seems to be glued to the shoe. The one I've removed seems intact. Can I just reuse that and install the new drain or should i also remove the attached gasket and replace both with a thicker gasket. I am not a plumber and really don't want to open up the ceiling and mess with my pipings. What are my options here? Please help!

The waste and overflow assembly will come with all you need to install properly 1 gasket for the overflow 1 gasket and friction ring washer for the shoe and the trim only 1 rubber washer is required on the shoe there are many videos out there to watch the installation

with your finger, swipe some 100% silicone caulk on top of the shoe flange and another swipe on top of the rubber gasket. also put a generous beed under the tub flange.
don't worry, none of this will get into the drain passage..
