Installing a Two piece Freestanding Tub-assembled with screws

The installation instructions for the Flex P-trap drain can’t be used together with installation instruction of a Freestanding Tub. The strain draining should come already installed by the manufacturer, but if not you can use the Strain draining installation guide provided by manufacturer. It is impossible to fit (adjust) the freestanding tub with a rigid p-trap without resulting in leaking later. Because of the part tolerances and the incorrect installations of tub, the freestanding tub will leak or sewer gases will escape in the bathroom.The Flex P-trap will eliminate all these problems. If the manufacturer does not supply a P-trap, you can use Flex P-trap and these installation instructions.
