I just replaced my 30 year old tub drain flange with a new one. I have made sure that the flange is tightened.
Water goes down the new configuration just fine - it is not clogged. However, after draining, there is a tiny bit of water around the flange, and I'm wondering if this is something I should be worried about.
Here's a photo of the new flange, with standing water:
I don't remember if, after draining, there was standing water around the old flange. I did take a look at it (the old flange) and noticed that it has a concave lip, while the new flange has a flat lip.
Will the standing water cause any problems, such as:
- getting underneath the flange "lip"
- corroding the flange
- some other problem that I haven't thought of
