Question about Lefroy Brooks Bath Waste Trap for Exposed Fitting Complete with 500mm Exten
I fitted a new waste trap under my bath yesterday but it leaks, the bit that fits up into the bath section is the section of it that is leaking. I just bought a the standard part from plumbers shop - took the old one along, so the size etc is correct. Not sure where I'm going wrong. Can anybody help?
Put the putty under the flange where it makes contact with the inside of the bath, push the flange to the bath & tighten nut underneath. Trim off excess. Have an overflow pipe [not intergral] make sure the top & bottom of the collar have rubber seals
If the whole lot is plastic there may well be a leak down & along the thread of the waste.[it comes from the o/flow pipe collar] Silicone the thread and tighten nut. make sure it's dry first - silicone & water do not make a happy couple

You need to put plumber putty around the fitting where it makes contact with the tub.
