Forum Title: Drum trap on tub in basement
I'm re-doing a basement bathroom built in 1950. It has a drum trap, in a concrete floor. Is it a good idea to go ahead and replace it with a p-trap? Should I use brass, or PVC for this application? It is in a corner, and after the tub is in place and the tiling re-done there is no access to the plumbing.

Thanks, I have seen a lot of your posts so I know you are an expert, I will take your advice and replace the trap with PVC.

break the concrete and replace the trap, if it is lead pipe to the trap, replace it also. ue regular pvc pipe
