Oatey® Tub Boxes provide a quick and economical method for providing access to the tub waste and drain in slab construction. Tub boxes protect the tub drain that is exposed under the concrete floor, keeping insects and rodents out of the drain system during construction.
How can I keep insects and mice from entering exposed drain pipes during basement bathroom construction?
The toilet and lavatory sink pipes are already sealed against infestation as they pass through the concrete floor. Shower drains are sealed during installation, but tub drain are left exposed as they pass through the concrete. The Oatey Tub Boxes are designed to seal the tub drains that are exposed from under the concrete floor. The tub drain is installed inside the Tub Box before the concrete floor is finished, and the pipe penetration sealed. This completes an insect and rodent free installation.
