2. Before you install prepare your drain pipe.
Sand outer top edge of pipe to remove all burrs and sharp edges. This protects the O-ring, allowing it to easily slip over the pipe. Clean outside of pipe for a good O-ring seal. Inspect pipe for any irregularities. Pipe must be smooth! ✔

Prepare Drain Pipe

  • Top of the pipe must be approximately 1/2” from the shower floor ✔
