We are installing a new bathtub (where there wasn't one before). There is current plumbing for an industrial sink that isn't being used. Can we use the drain that was installed for the sink or does it have to be a different size pipe?
Does it have to be in the floor instead of the wall?

Thanks,
Kriss

The size for a tub line is 1-1/2" and it will need to grade 1/4" per foot to the maindrain, so yes since water will not drain uphill you will need to put the drain line in the floor, don't forget you will also need a trap and a vent just past the trap, before it ties to the mainline or what ever pipe your tie'ing to.
