I recently removed a drain from my fiberglass tub/shower enclosure. It didn't survive. The problem is that it the older 1 3/8 standard but coarse thread, not fine.

All I can find is fine in that size. Any ideas on a source or a solve? Could I somehow chase the threads of the new drain?

Thanks in advance.

  • A picture would be helpful. It's not quite clear which part didn't survive, and why you can't just replace the entire drain assembly. – PhilippNagel Jun 25 '19 at 17:37

  • @Daniel It took me all day to figure out what you're saying! DOH! I guess I have teaching on the mind. The quarter did just end. Lol – brehma Jun 28 '19 at 4:07
  • @brehma Yeah; eventually the neuron will fire, but sometimes it takes a while... been there, done that way too many times... – Daniel Griscom Jun 28 '19 at 11:50
