I'm installing a new shower base and drain... The new drain fitting has a rubber sleave on the inside that slips over the two inch drain pipe that connects to the p-trap.

Do I need to apply silicone to the inside of the rubber flange (it fits tight enough that I need to apply soap to slide it over the two inch pipe) or is the tight fit enough to prevent leaks?

Thanks in advance,
laz

Just slip it on and that's it. No silicone needed.
