This Is A New One To Me


I have an Ebbe drain trim which I supplied to the plumber. It comes with the part that screws into the drain body and the strainer. When I get to the job the next day the drain is installed but the trim body is cut from the start of the threads to the top of the threads.

The plumber says it's for extra drainage between the tile and the mudbed. I say ? Anyone else do this?

Re: This Is A New One To Me


let me understand the threads are cut down the 2" threaded part, making either a channel or a slot.


I have seen other drain assemblies this way.

That's correct. But here's the thing. The slot would allow the bedding material to fall into the drain depending on the height of the drain body. So I just taped around the slot with a waxy blue painters tape.
